As an IT professional, allow me to point out that "low traffic" has nothing to do with whether your personal information is secure. At issue is the fact that without SSL, all your personal information is sent across the Internet "in the open." The number of opportunities for such information to be captured is astronomical - regardless of the size of the intended target. Secure sites using SSL are much safer to use. How information is secured once it reaches it's destination is another story.
A good suggestion is to have a credit card with a lower limit, say < $1000, that you can use just for doing such transactions. When ordering from Jantzen, I print the order form and fax it.
