Yellow Plum takes precautions to protect your credit card information. Our Site uses the latest version of 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption software on pages where customers enter personal information, such as their name, address, and credit card information. This protective software encrypts your information into codes so that your information is kept secure while being transmitted via the internet. Should you forget your password, we will email you a new temporary password. This is the best way to protect your information, as sending your existing password via email is not safe. Upon receiving your new temporary password, you may change it by going to My Account.
