Designed4U Security and Privacy Policy

Online Credit/Debit Card Security

Designed4U take online security very seriously and have invested significantly to ensure your transactions online are secured. We know of no documented cases of credit card fraud using our shopping system over the internet. We have implemented the following stringent measures:

1. Our secure-server software encrypts your credit or debit card details using 128 encryption. The encryption process takes the information you provide and converts it into bits of code that are then securely transmitted over the Internet. They are only decrypted after they reach our computer.

2. For security purposes we record the IP(Internet Protocol) address used to connect your computer to the internet and time of each transaction for all purchases made online. This is done for your protection in the unfortunate event that someone gains access to your personal or financial information and makes purchases. These details will be passed to the authorities in the event of fraud being discovered.

3. We will only deliver goods or items to the credit card holder’s address details, to reduce the risk of fraud. If you require a delivery to a different address, then you can telephone or email us, and we will be happy to undertake the transaction, subject to additional verification procedures at the time of purchase.

Designed4U respects customers’ confidentiality and understands that you care how information about you is used and shared and want you to feel confident in our services. Designed4U therefore does not disclose buyer’s information to third parties.
