+ - Protecting info on partially encrypted pages?

Submitted by no_pets
no_pets (881013) writes "As do most people, I like to shop and order things online. Unlike many, I also verify page encryption before sending sensitive info. Lately I've come across websites for smaller or medium sized businesses (as well as occasional larger companies) that I would like to do business with online but their order page is only partially encrypted. From their point of view there is no need to encrypt images, etc. but from my end it makes verifying that sensitive fields (i.e. credit card #, or social security #) are encrypted much harder or impossible. Any suggestions on verifying encryption of certain fields? Or do I just take my business elsewhere?"
