Your privacy is very important to us, and we will never release your personal details to any outside company for mailing or marketing purposes.
When you make a purchase from the Devon Disability Collective (DDC), we do collect certain personal information from you (for example: your name, email address, payment address and details). All such information is held on secure servers. DDC complies fully with all applicable Data Protection and consumer legislation, and we’ll treat all your personal information as fully confidential.
In order to serve you most efficiently, reputable third-party banking (including World Pay & PayPal) handle our credit card transactions. They receive the information needed to verify and authorise your payment card and to process your order. These organisations are under strict obligation to keep your personal information private.
We use banner advertising on other websites to present you with products we think may be of interest to you, based on your browsing history.
Occasionally we may contact you in various ways including email, post, SMS and phone, to inform you of offers, new products or to request feedback, but if you wish to be excluded from this then please advise us.
DDC complies and adheres to the Data Protection Act 1998 and all other relevant UK legislation.
The WorldPay payment system uses a combination of both established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data. Furthermore, their public web servers are certified by Thawte, a public Certificate Authority, ensuring that both the shopper and retailer can have confidence that nobody can impersonate WorldPay to obtain confidential information.
The transfer of the purchase details from the retailers site to WorldPay are encapsulated using their own encrypted and digitally-signed protocol. This uses a combination of standard methods such as PGP, RSA and MD5 to ensure that the information passed is secure and tamper-proof via SSL.
Any communication between the shopper and WorldPay is also encrypted to the maximum strength supported by the shopper’s browser using 128 Bit SSL. Shoppers are also protected from fraudulent use of their card in a “card not present” environment, by their card issuers. The card issuers provide the right for shopper to dispute a transaction if the goods/services did not arrive or if the card was used fraudulently.
Data storage on WorldPay systems, and the communication between WorldPay and the worldwide banking networks, is regularly audited by the banking authorities to ensure a secure transaction environment.
Phishing is the practice of tricking someone into giving confidential information. Such as falsely claiming to be a legitimate company when sending an e-mail to a user, in an attempt to get the user to send private information that will be used for identity theft and fraud. DDC will never ask you to do this, we will always request that you contact us on our main phone number. Please report any ‘phishing’ attempts to us.
We endeavor to take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Website.
