Is commercial site safe to subscribe to if it has secure and nonsecure items?
Posted on 2007-03-25
I am thinking about becoming a subscriber to a commercial website. However, I am hesitating because of the following reason: Whenever I select Credit Card as my preferred method of payment, I get a small window indicating the next page to appear requesting the credit card information contains both, secure and nonsecure items along with a question underneath it asking whether to display nonsecure items. In any case, if I select Yes to display nonsecure items, the lock icon indicating a protected or encrypted page never appears at the bottom right of my screen. In sharp contrast, if I select No to display nonsecure items, the lock icon appears at the lower right of the screen.
At the point, I am at a crossroads in terms of what do do. I am interested in becoming a member of this site because it was recommended to me by a friend. However, I want to make sure it is a safe site before rendering any credit card information.
Any suggestions regarding this post will be appreciated. Thank you.
