Additional Items of Note

10. Invalid Security Certificate Warning

Certain pages that utilize SSL (secure sockets layer) or additional security precautions may unavoidably issue you, as a user, an invalid security certificate warning. The security certificate is not directly owned by Hot and Cold Art but is a common host certificate issued by our hosting service provider, suresupport.com. To limit the cost of business, there is no individual/personal security certificate provided at this time.

Simply check that the "padlock" is locked in the corner of your browser or url and a secure connection will be provided through an encryption of your personal data. All orders are processed through PayPal and PayPal's encryption.

To avoid the certificate warning click here for instructions on installing the certificate into your browser's recognizable certificates, or click here to return to the un-encrypted site.

We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

We thank you for your visit and for your business.
