Security is one of the major concerns for the shopper during an online transaction. So we use state of the art security tools and techniques to ensure that you are protected against online fraud. In reality, an online purchase is probably more secure than a card transaction conducted in a shop, over the telephone or by fax - because we ensure that your online purchase details are encrypted using complex logarithm methods. For more information about online security visit the Shopify Legal Privacy page.
You should be assured that the information you provide during an online transaction is treated confidentially, and not disclosed to a third party. We have adopted a set of guidelines to protect our users' privacy, which comply with the Data Protection Act 1998. A summary of guidelines is as follows:
- We do not provide or sell your details to third parties unless you have specifically requested that we do so, in order that these advertisers and/or third parties can offer you information, goods and services that may be of interest to you.
- We reserve the right to disclose information about member usage and demographics to advertisers and partners, but in anonymous aggregate form only.
Any questions regarding online security should be directed to Shopify at: email@example.com or for information on the Data Protection Act 1998 visit www.ico.gov.uk/for_organisations/data_protection/the_guide.aspx.
