Security and personal data policy
Payment over the Internet - Security Policy
The security currently used for payments via the Internet has made MyTrendyPhone concept possible. Internet shopping is as secure as if the customers had used their Credit/Debit cards in a "physical" shop. This high level of security is achieved by carrying out the payments using the SSL protocol (Secure Sockets Layer). The credit card information is communicated via MyTrendyPhone to PBS or Dibs using a secure, encrypted SSL connection.
How secure are you?
As soon as you enter the order process, every bit of information that is transferred between you and us is encrypted using powerful encryption algorithms. So even if someone could intercept the data over the internet, there is not a thing they could do with it.
How can you tell if the web site is a secure one?
A standard page will begin with 'http://'. A secure web page will begin with the URL 'https://' denoting that the merchant is using a secure server for the transaction of data.
How does Encryption work?
All credit card details are encrypted using VeriSign 128bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Software. When you establish a secure connection, the downloaded web site sends a digital certificate to your web browser. When the certificate arrives, it contains a public key, which functions as a one-way encryption device. The browser then uses this key to scramble your personal data (Credit Card Information) before sending it over the Internet. Information encrypted with the public key cannot be decrypted without the corresponding private key, which only the merchant has. Without this exclusive, private key, your personal information cannot be read.
Information about things like your card number and account number are not freely accessible on the Internet when you do business with us. We do not have access to your payment information at any time. In other words, we do not and never will see your card information. This part of the transaction is handled by a certified payment agent. The only thing we have access to is the sum you are supposed to be charged when the order you have placed with MyTrendyPhone is about to be sent. Having said that, we would also like to emphasize that we are not able to charge your account with a sum higher than the actual price of your order.
Internet security is the subject of much discussion, but the fact is your legal position when paying using a card over the Internet is stronger than the use of many other types of payment. When you pay with a charge card, you can get your money back:
- - If the product is not delivered
- - If by exercising your right of cancellation, you refuse to receive the product
- - If money has been withdrawn from your account without your consent
