Creator Handbook ensures your privacy and the security of your personal information when ordering from us by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. If you are using a browser which supports SSL, when you go to the checkout form you will be entering a secure environment. Any information you provide there, including your credit card number, will be encrypted before it is sent to our servers.

Problems? Creator Handbook uses a Thawte digital certificate for SSL encryption. Although Thawte certificates are considered the best when it comes to browser security and Y2K compliance, they do sometimes have compatibility issues with older browsers. If you are using an older browser (IE 3.0 or older, Netscape 3.0 or older), you may receive a message similar to the one below:

“ is a site that uses encryption to protect transmitted information.
However one of the Certificate Authorities that identifies this site has expired…”

Our certificate has not expired. Your browser simply needs to be upgraded. If you plan on continuing to use this older browser, go to the following web address for information on how to upgrade its security features:

We have tested the upgrade procedure on several older browsers, and it’s extremely easy. This should only take less than a minute to do. We are sorry for the trouble it’s caused you, but hopefully it will make your transactions more secure in the future. If you have any other concerns, email the webmaster.
