Our payments are processed using PayPal.com. We have chosen to use PayPal because the PayPal site is highly secure. PayPal uses industry-leading technology to keep your information safe. Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.
When shopping at Far + Wide, you can feel safe - your digital data is in good hands. To ensure that you don't become a victim of cyber crime (ie. stealing your personal data or credit card information), the Far + Wide Collective uses coded communication called "SSL". Here is a short explanation on how it works:
What is a SSL certificate? A SSL certificate is a tool that ensures the safe communication of sensitive data upon submission to a website, particularly personally identifying information and credit card numbers. The SSL certificate encrypts this information as it's transferred between internet sites.
How do SSL certificates work? SSL certificates encrypt information at the time payments are submitted so internet hackers can't read the information as it is flowing across the information superhighway. Once the data reaches the intended destination, it's then decrypted into original form for use.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice, and you agree to this sharing. We will only release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.
You will not be added to the mailing list unless you expressly ask to be on the list or you have subscribed to receive it. To opt-out you can click the link at the bottom of every e-newsletter, or click here to request to be removed.
