PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in
transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL)
with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially
available). Before you even register or log in to our site, our server checks
that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once your information reaches us, it resides on a server that is
heavily guarded both physically and electronically. Our servers sit behind an
electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your
private information is available only to authorized computers.
