Payment Details
Like any other online store we have payment gateways integrated with our
website in order to process payments. We have Paypal and Stripe as our
payment gateways. We redirect you to Paypal (link to their policy) to make any payments so we never see your credit or debit card information, it is all
encrypted on their side and we have SSL enabled on our site for Stripe (link to their policy) which means all transactions are over a secure network – this ensures maximum protection.  All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. We use Woocommerce to manage our online store and sell to you, your account data and order information including payment gateway information is stored on their platform, they are also fully GDPR compliant and here is a link to their policy.
