Why is it secure to purchase on our site? Purchasing on our site is 100% safe and customers' personal information is secured. We maintain and enforce our own privacy and security policies; all tuition payments and purchases of other IBE products and services, whether executed online or by phone, are processed through virtual services provider, PayPal. PayPal is one of the most trusted names in e-commerce and Web-based technology, and any and all information processed through PayPal's system is subject to PayPal's published Privacy and Security Guarantee.
PayPal's Privacy Guarantee: PayPal asks customers to supply various personal data when placing an order, such as name and address, credit-card information, and E-mail address. They use this data only for the purpose of filling an order, or communicating with the customer or supplier about the status of an order.
PayPal will release personally identifiable information to us when they believe it is appropriate for them to do so in order to comply with the law or to protect against fraud. PayPal will also release such information to cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental investigations (without necessarily requiring the requesting law enforcement or government agency to formally serve us with a subpoena), comply with all valid court orders or subpoenas, protect the legal rights of users, or when they believe it is needed for fraud protection and/or credit risk reduction.
Except for the circumstances set forth in the previous paragraph, the PayPal team will not knowingly distribute customer information to be used in mailing lists, surveys, or any other purpose other than what is required to perform our services.
What information does PayPal collect? How do they use it? When ordering from any of our partner sites, PayPal must collect the purchaser's name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows to process and fulfill orders and provide notification of the order status.
How does PayPal protect customer information? Customers who buy through the PayPal system are shopping on a secure server, which encrypts all of the customer's personal information including name, address and credit card number. Encryption ensures that no one can access or use personal information in an unauthorized manner.
PayPal commerce system was developed in-house with security as its number one priority. This single entry point allows PayPal to maintain the tightest access control - eliminating (rather than closing) the backdoor.
PayPal has made an investment in protecting clients' and customers' information utilizing the following technologies:
Firewall: Firewalls allow the use of authenticated access and can prevent certain types of traffic from entering the private network. Customizing the firewall according to the network topology is essential to having a useful firewall protection mechanism.
SSL (Secure Socket Layers): Because PayPal accepts sensitive information from end-users such as passwords and credit card numbers, PayPal,s site uses SSL. This logic encrypts the data being sent to the server from the browser using high-level encryption technology. Once the data is received from customers on the PayPal Network, it may be required that the data be maintained for a certain period of time inside our private network. Encrypting the data means it cannot be viewed in plain text.
What about cookies? "Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. PayPal's cookies are used only to identify the customer, not to identify any specific customer traits. These cookies do not store sensitive data. This enables a more pleasant shopping experience with PayPal every time you shop with Hide Folder software.
