We value your trust when you shop online at BestInAuto.com. The following information details the steps we take to ensure that every purchase you make with us is guaranteed 100% safe.

When we request personal information from you (such as name, address, phone number and credit card number), it is done on our secure servers.

SSL is an industry standard technology for secure online transactions.

We are so confident in our security that we guarantee you'll pay nothing if unauthorized charges (as determined by your card issuer) are made to your personal credit card while shopping at BestInAuto.com. Federal law limits your liability for unauthorized charges to your account.

If you encounter a fraudulent credit card charge at BestInAuto.com, don't worry, we'll pay up to $50 of liability.

In the event of unauthorized use of your credit or debit card, you must promptly notify the card issuer pursuant to its reporting rules and procedures.
