Our website is protected with the SSL security protocol. This means that your personal data (address, name, email and phone number)
can not be intercepted when you upload them into our system.
On the other hand, our online payment processor is PayPal. PayPal lets
anyone with an email address securely send and receive online payments using
their credit / debit card or bank account. It is the most popular way to
electronically pay for goods or services.
When paying through PayPal, your credit card and billing information cannot be
read as it travels to PayPal.
We never even receive your credit card information.
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your
computer to theirs using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol, SSL, with an
encryption key length of 128-bits, the highest level commercially available.
Before you even register or log in to their site, their server checks that you
are using an approved browser, one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once your information reaches them, it resides on a server that is heavily
guarded both physically and electronically. Their servers sit behind an
electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your
private information is available only to authorized computers. PayPal processes
billions of dollars in payments each year.
In general, under federal law, you will not be liable for more than 50 dollars
of fraudulent charges. In the unlikely event that you are subject to fraudulent
charges, remember to notify your credit card provider in accordance with its
reporting rules and procedures.
When you click on links and/or ad banners that take you to third-party web sites,

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction.

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information page.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
