Online Store Policies

The penitentiary's online store allows you to place orders using our secure server. Our shopping cart software runs in secure mode on the shopper's browser, using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to encrypt sensitive data such as credit card numbers. While selecting products and adding them to the Shopping Cart, the online shopper is in non-secure mode. After he/she presses the Checkout button, we switch to secure mode in order to collect the billing and shipping information. All modern web browsers support the SSL standard, but the online shopper can choose to checkout using non-secure mode if necessary. Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site does not make customer e-mail addresses available to other companies.

Complete satisfaction with your orders from the online store is fully guaranteed. You may return any item, for any reason, for exchange or refund.
