Security is a top priority at Newegg. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

The Ecommerce infrastructure is on high availability to provide customer non-interrupted 24×7 shopping experience. All sites are firewall protected with intrusion prevention system. A dedicated team monitors the firewalls and sites for performance and irregular activities on 24 x 7.

All Newegg servers, including web servers and database servers, are housed and maintained in secure data centers. All servers are firewall protected from internal and external access. Access to the database is strictly monitored. All backups are securely stored in vendor’s offsite storage.

Newegg uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) to secure all transmissions between customer and us. Sensitive information, including credit card number and logon credentials, are securely transmitted to us thru TLS. Newegg encrypts emails in transit via STARTTLS when available, which deliver mail securely and prevent eavesdropping and spoofing between mail servers.

All credit card information is encrypted. Newegg employs salted password hashing for all customers’ logon credentials.

Access to all of our customers’ information is restricted. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. All access activities are logged and reviewed regularly.

Newegg operates in a secured and locked facility that requires all employees to check in and wear valid ID badges. Security cameras are positioned throughout the building in conjunction with multiple alarm systems.

All employees are updated with the latest information on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy and of what they can do to ensure that our customers’ information remains protected.
