Our website is secure
Shopping on the internet can feel risky and unsecure. What happens to the information you provide? In particular what happens to your credit or debit card details?
Details we require from you when placing an order are your name, delivery address, daytime contact number, card type, card number, expiry date and full postal billing address. Therefore card security is a high priority for us and we have taken every precaution to ensure that this information is collected and stored accurately, confidentially and without danger of unauthorised access.
These details are not held online but held securely by our payment processing partners SagePay and PayPal both of whom are GDPR compliant. They are secure sites that use encryption technology to safeguard your details. Encryption technology provides billions of code combinations per order transaction and prevents other internet users from accessing your personal details during transmission.
We also use servers with Secure Socket Layers (SSL), a sophisticated encryption technology to further protect your information.
We will only collect personal data from you that is relevant to thepyjamastore.com to enable us to fulfil our transactions with you, provide you with the service you expect and help us shape the future of our website to meet your demands. As part of our total commitment to data protection we will ensure that this data is collected and stored by thepyjamastore.com
As a payment service provider (PSP), thousands of businesses outsource their transaction security to SagePay and PayPal. All transaction information passed between merchant sites and Sage Pay and PayPal’s systems is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates.
At events we attend we use PayPal here or SumUp and again in all cases these companies hold your details on our behalf.
