Data Transfer / Security

Any sensitive data transferred between our customers and ourselves use encrypted 256-bit TLS1.2 (which succeeds SSL3.0) technology. Therefore, you can always be sure of the best security with us online.

Payments

Online payments can be made through the PayPal™, Stripe™ or Coinbase™ secure-payment systems.

2.1 Once you have made your orders and been through our checkout system you may choose to be redirected to an official PayPal site where they will process the payment for us.

2.2 If you do not have a PayPal account then payments can also be made to us by using a credit or debit card via the Stripe payment gateway. There is also an option to do this via PayPal.

If however, you do not have a Coinbase account, you can transfer manually via the blockchain using the details given when you checkout via this method, however, you will have to wait until this transaction can be confirmed or your order will automatically be cancelled within approximately one hour, if it does not clear in time or if you choose the back button. Please note that a manual transfer may incur a network fee (which goes to the miner/node verifying the transaction and not to us).
