Security Information

Secure Site

When you submit your personal information to Price Chopper you can be assured that your information will reach our servers in a secure fashion. This site uses a digital certificate and a SSL server to ensure information sent is securely encrypted. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology is the industry-standard protocol for secure Web-based communications. Your sensitive information will be kept private!

Components of our SSL online transactions:

  • Authentication: A Certificate Signing Authority granted Price Chopper a Digital Server ID. The Certificate Signing Authority reviews credentials such as an organization's Dun & Bradstreet number or Articles of Incorporation and completes a thorough background checking process. This ensures that the organization is what it claims to be, and is not claiming a false identity. Then the Certificate Signing Authority issues the organization a Server ID. This Server ID is an electronic credential that proves the company's identity.
  • Message privacy: Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypts personal information sent to our web server from your web browser using a unique session key. To securely transmit the session key to your browser, our server encrypts it with your public key. These layers of privacy protection ensure that information cannot be viewed if it is intercepted by unauthorized parties.
  • Message integrity: When you send your personal information, your computer's web browser and our web server each generate a code based on the message content. If even a single character in the message content is altered our web server will generate a different code, and will be alerted that the message is not legitimate. With message integrity, our web server will know that the data sent to it is exactly what you sent.
