Online Ordering Security

DeBrand Fine Chocolates transaction frames are fully SSL encrypted and all information is sent securely.

SSL encryption ensures that transaction information is sent securely but has a significant performance tradeoff in the browser environment. You may have noticed that the DeBrand Fine Chocolates site employs a framed metaphor for easier navigation and more efficient page updates. With this in mind DeBrand Fine Chocolates selectively places SSL encryption on only those forms and frames that need to be encrypted (i.e. the checkout). Since things like our section selectors and menus don’t need to be slowed down by SSL we do not employ it there.

Unfortunately browsers won’t show the safe “KEY” or “LOCK” unless each and every frame on the page is SSL encrypted. Thus, if only one frame is encrypted, the browser correctly reports that not everything you are looking at is “safe”. However, the absence of the “lock” or “key” does not mean that the information you are looking at is not encrypted.

You can verify that a frame is SSL encrypted by right-clicking within the frame and looking at the frame info or properties (i.e. found in the “View” menu in Netscape and the “File” menu in Internet Explorer). Doing this within DeBrand Fine Chocolates checkout pages will indeed show that this information is being sent encrypted and thus any security concerns you may have should be relieved.
