We take security very seriously at BuyXBT.ca. This is why we have invested a lot of time and money to ensure that your personal information is secure. While we do not store any money or cryptocurrency on our website, we opted for the highest level of security at our disposal. This ensures that your personal information is as secure as it can be. Below you will find a list of the security measures we have put into place, along with a description of each.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) are cryptographic protocols that secure your connection over a computer network. The data that you send to a website using SSL is encrypted and safe.
While many websites use standard SSL to encrypt the data (i.e. your personal details) sent to their server, we wanted to take it one step further. We did this by opting for an EV SSL Certificate so that our customers and visitors feel even safer dealing with us.
Difference Between Standard SSL and EV SSL
While a standard SSL does protect your information with encryption, an Extended Validation SSL certificate take it one step further by having the certificate issuer (in our case GoDaddy) verify that the company's credentials are valid and true; ensuring that a company is who they claim to be.
This is done by having the certificate issuer run a stringent, standardized vetting process which can take up to 30 days to confirm. It also confirms that we are not a phishing site.
Spotting the Difference
A standard SSL can be identified by the website address (URL) with a lock image in the address bar. You'll also notice that there is a padlock icon signifying the site is secure. And, you'll notice that the URL will start with HTTPS as opposed to the unsecured HTTP. This however does not mean that the site you are visiting isn't a phishing site.
An EV SSL Certificate will have the green padlock as well but will also show our parent company's name and country of origin in parenthesizes. Like so: . Also, on most browsers, your address bar will be completely green; this is reserved only for the highest level of security. By clicking on this in your address bar, you will be shown all the details pertaining to our certificate.
Alternatively, you can also click on the link "Extended Validation SSL Certificate" in our Security section found in our footer at the bottom right of any of our pages.
