with Mozilla Firefox, you'll get a message that you've entered a secure
site, a blue line will appear across the top of your browser window and
the security key at the bottom left of the browser completes itself.
Safer than telephoning:
Transferring data to our site is safer than transferring
data over a cordless or cellular phone, which does not use encryption
as our site does. When you give order information over a cordless or cellular
phone, the signals may be intercepted.
Our top priority:
At the ACI Bookstore, the security of your transactions is
of utmost importance. Never will we give out or sell your personal information
to anyone for any purpose.
Shipping & Handling
ACI orders are normally shipped within 3 days of receipt. However,
shipping via the mails may take considerable time and we suggest allowing
1-3 weeks for orders originating in the United States. For Overseas orders
allow 6 weeks for delivery.
