How Secure Is Ordering Online?
To ensure the highest standards of security, the ordering system used by HOA encrypts information using the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL).

Once received, the information is unencrypted and processed in the same way as a credit card transaction placed via the telephone. At no time is your credit card number stored on our website or in our online database.
