Unless you’ve been on Spring Break for the last few weeks you’ve probably heard about the frightening “Heartbleed” virus that took advantage of vulnerabilities in OpenSSL and leaked personal information from many big sites.
It doesn’t affect Rivendell’s webstore. Yay! Confirmed! Our shopping cart provider never used OpenSSL in the first place (smart), so there was never a problem.
This message is to reassure you that your info is safe with us and we are not affected by “Heartbleed.” You can read about the security team here.
Big picture: You can place orders for bike parts through our website with confidence that we have the best security you can get.
And while we have many advantages over our competition—descriptive photos and product writing, fast shipping, excellent packaging, unbeatable customer service, fair prices, good working conditions, no sweatshop products, actual real phone support—now we have the chip on our shoulder that shopping elsewhere might compromise your privacy and destroy your finances. Just kidding. But maybe.
