Safe Online Shopping
We take great care to store your personal information securely. We want you to feel confident about shopping online with us. Your credit card details are not stored on our transactional system therefore each new transaction requires you to re-enter your credit card details.
This website processes payments securely with PayPal, one of the most popular payment gateways. Your credit card number and other personal information entered in this site are protected using Secure Socket Layers (SSL) technology.
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your 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 you even register or log in to the PayPal site, the server checks that you’re using an approved browser – one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once your 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 your private information is available only to authorized computers.

- Loss of profits or income;
- Loss of use of the services;
- Loss arising from delay or failure to deliver products or services;
