To enhance your experience with our site, many of our web pages use "cookies." Cookies are text files we place in your computer's browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your email address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at our site. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
If I place my order online, is my credit card secure?
The CNN Store Online is sensitive to the concerns you may have with the security of using your credit cards to purchase products over the Internet. If your Internet browser supports the Secure Sockets Layer protocol ("SSL"), we automatically encrypt your credit card data using SSL while the information is being transferred over the Internet.
To verify the security of your connection, check the lower left corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken or a closed lock, then SSL is active and the server is secure. You may also check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the site address will change from http to https.
What browsers work best on CNN Store Online?
CNN Store Online has been designed to work equally well with Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher, Netscape Navigator 4.0 or higher, or Netscape Communicator 4.0 or higher.
What do I do if I am unable to add an item to my shopping cart?
Caching can also be a problem. Browsers cache pages to speed download times but this can cause problems when a page containing dynamic content, such as a shopping cart, becomes cached. While the item may have been put into the cart, the browser fails to update the page to reflect that change. To clear any cached pages, go to the preferences control panel. In Internet Explorer, click on the General tab and then click the Delete Files button. This will remove ONLY the temporary files cached by your browser. It will not remove any other files from your computer. In Netscape browsers, click open the Advanced folder, then click Cache. On that panel, click the Clear Disk Cache button.
How do I check to see if my browser works on CNN Store Online?
Find the Help menu at the top of your browser window. From that menu, select "About Navigator", "About Communicator", or "About Internet Explorer" respective of your browser. That loads a page which shows a version number. If the version number is 4 or higher, this site is compatible with your browser.
