Base and Availabilty
The green text following the blue site link shows the country where the product or service provider is based, and following the forward slash, the country where the product or service is available. The availability may be further qualified with a business name or location, especially in the case of national stores in the case of an availabilty code of "NS", or the locality if shown as "LO".
Site link Base Availability
Amazon US / WW
The availabilty code refers to the location where the product or service can be obtained from, not to where the product or service may be used. A typical example of this is a credit card which may only be available to a US resident, in which case the availaibilty code would be "US", but the service - the credit card - may be used internationally. Where shipping to international destinations is shown by WW there may be restrictions, and US may include AK, HI, all U.S. Territories and APO/FPO addresses.

Many online merchants employ the latest measures to protect your security when you shop with them. Check for 128-bit SSL encryption of your credit/debit card information when you place your order, which means a third party should not be able to decrypt the information in your transaction. Sending your credit/debit card details in an email is not a secure method. On the page of the merchant's site where you enter your credit/debit card details, security is indicated by: the address in the Address/Location bar changing from http:// to https://; and a padlock symbol (or key) showing in your web browser. In the unlikely event of unauthorised use of your credit or debit card for a purchase, most banks and card issuers either cover all the charges or may limit your liability, provided that the unauthorised use of your credit or debit card resulted through no fault of your own. If your bank or card issuer holds you liable, you should check if the merchant will cover your liability, some merchants promote this as an incentive to purchase from them. You can download free software which will check the security of the order page of any website. Click here to vist the site...

Adverts and Pop-Ups
Do you find there are an increasing number of unsolicited windows containing adverts appearing on your desktop, sometimes related to the subject you searched for? While you browse, some sites may be installing software on your machine, often without your consent or knowledge. This software will monitor your online activities and present you with windows showing adverts. To counter this expanding problem, we suggest you download and run Ad-aware, a free program that will scan your computer for this type of software and safely remove it. Ad-aware should be run periodically to ensure your computer is free from these annoying adverts.
