In this case of Stripe payments – Stripe require all vendors to encrypt their websites using Secure Socket Layers (SSL) and we comply fully with this policy.
Note on padlock symbols and other trust marks
Many companies offer certification and an icon or other small graphic to prove to site visitors that the site is safe. Some certify to a high level of safety. Others are more concerned to take our money than to provide a useful service. We do not handle information about your credit card so do not subscribe to any such service. However, we suggest you assess this notice to judge that we do take your privacy seriously.
To assist in combating fraud, we share information with credit reference agencies so far as it relates to clients or customers who instruct their credit card issuer to cancel/refund the payment to us without having first provided an acceptable reason to us and given us the opportunity to refund their money (known as a “Chargeback”).
