Verification of PayPal payments
All new customers paying via PayPal will be subject to a verification process. This always involves a personal phone call and email confirmation. Sometimes we may also request photocopies of id and funding source. You may hide any sensitive data on the photocopies. We only need to see name, gender, photo, year of birth, and last 4 digits of funding source. On rare occassions we may also ask for a video call so that we can ascertain gender and age of customer. This is typically a one time procedure and once sufficiently verified all future orders will be delivered without further verification. Any photocopies will be deleted from our servers as soon as verification is completed which typically takes less than 1 hour.
Storage And Security
The website is protected by 256 bit SSL encryption and all software is kept up to date at all times to prevent long standing vurnerabilities. Our server is also scanned daily to ensure it is not open to attacks and that it is not hosting any malware. The server itself is located in a high security facility protected from unauthorized access and use. Your information is protected with appropriate technical safe guards and administrative protocols but no method of transmission over the Internet is 100% secure and no server is 100% secure. So although we do everything we can to keep our information secure, we can not guarantee its absolute security.
