The Sterling Irons® Websites use physical, electronic and managerial security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of information under our control.
- We sometimes use Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) connections with 128-bit encryption for certain transactions and confidential data.

Every secure page uses a digital certificate issued by a third-party certification authority. A “site certificate” sits on all secure pages. To view this certificate, click on the image of the closed lock or the solid key on the bottom bar of your browser window.
