Here at Pong A Long we are total nut jobs about security. You might even say we have insecurities about security. With that in mind we set out to create the most secure, dolphin rectum tight purchasing solution for our products that we possibly could. One so secure and devious that if you could comprehend it, you would be gobbled up by closet monsters that work for us to even guard against comprehension. Rainman took one look at our security systems and ran to K-mart for more underwear....yeah, it's that good. On to the techno babble.
We spared no expense when it came to the development of our checkout process. An extremely skilled team of professional web commerce programmers locked down our cart to a degree typically reserved for highly sensitive information. Using advanced Hashing algorithms for data encryption and the highest quality SGC-enabled 256 bit* SSL, they have guaranteed that no man nor machine on this planet can possibly break the encoding.
About Encryption Strengths
Encryption strength is measured in key length â€” number of bits in the key. To decipher an SSL communication, one needs to generate the correct decoding key. Mathematically speaking, 2n possible values exist for an n-bit key. Thus, 40-bit encryption involves 2^40 possible values, 128-bit encryption 2^128 combinations, and 256-bit keys involves a staggering 2^256 possible combinations, rendering the encrypted data de facto impervious to intrusion. Even with a brute-force attack (the process of systematically trying all possible combinations until the right one is found) cracking a 256-bit encryption is computationally unfeasible.
Know You're Secure
So all this stuff is just dandy to read right? But how do you know for certain that you are protected? Well there are a couple of ways to be sure. First off, many web browsers, such as Internet Explorer and Firefox, display a small padlock on the bottom tool bar when you are secure. Hovering your mouse over this padlock will generally display information about the security. Also, check the address bar. You will see that the website no longer begins with http:// but instead with https:// indicating a secure site. Firefox even turns the whole address strip the color gold so you can identify it easier. Additionally, you can see at the bottom of every shopping cart page a big logo displaying Turbo SSL and the name of our site scrolling across it. Clicking on this icon will test the site to make sure that it is secure and valid, thus you can see for yourself if you choose.
What about the PayPal option you ask? As soon as you choose to continue paying through PayPal, you enter their encrypted site which is owned and operated by eBay. All of the same rules for seeing if you are secure apply to their site as well, but do you really think the worldâ€™s largest online market place wouldn't have some serious protection behind it?
You've now been educated beyond the typical user in e-commerce security. Purchase through Pong A Long with confidence boys and girls, think of our security as your own personal web superhero safeguarding your purchase.

*Our SSL provides us with the potential for a 256 bit SSL key, although this is dependent upon each userâ€™s security settings. Unless you have specifically set your browser for this extreme level of protection you will most likely obtain a 128 bit key.
