How we protect your information
Security is a major issue for anyone purchasing on the internet. You need to know that a website is legitimate, and transactions are secure before you buy. To address these issues the Website uses Pay Pal (via PayPal.com) to process your orders.
PayPal automatically encrypts the customers confidential information in transit from their computer to PayPal’s using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before the customer even register or logs in to the PayPal site, the PayPal server checks that the customer is using an approved browser – one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once customer information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the Internet, so private information is available only to authorised computers.
How PayPal keeps your information safe:
- Technology. Their state-of-the-art fraud models and proprietary fraud engine work together to help stop fraudulent transactions before they happen. In addition, PayPal stays at the forefront of security, developing many anti-fraud technologies every year
- Experience. With PayPal, the customer the industry’s most experienced fraud team on their side. PayPal processes billions of dollars in payments each year, allowing them to continually perfect anti-fraud protections. As a result, PayPal’s loss rate is significantly lower than the industry average. They work with federal law enforcement to catch criminals.
- Privacy. PayPal is committed to protecting the privacy of their users. When a customer sends money using PayPal, recipients do not see their bank account numbers or credit card numbers. They only see the users email address, date of sign-up, and whether or not they have completed PayPal’s Verification process.
