To check the security of your connection, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server.

When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https."

If your browser or firewall doesn't support SSL, you will not be able to connect to the server, which means you won't be able to mistakenly place an order through an unsecured connection.
