Security Policy

about-pashminaPayment protection
Security is probably one of the most significant concerns for both the consumer and the retailer during an on-line transaction. In reality an on-line transaction is probably more secure than a card transaction in a shop or conducted over the telephone or by fax.

Our secure payment system is powered by Paypal and Worldpay. Information transmitted on-line is encrypted using complicated logarithm combinations, unlike other methods that use standard medium coding.

All communication between the shopper and Paypal or WorldPay is encrypted to the maximum strength supported by the shopper’s browser using TLS or SSL (security).

All communication between the shopper and Paypal and WorldPay, including the details of the purchase, are encapsulated using their own encrypted and digitally-signed protocol; this uses a combination of standard methods to ensure that the information passed is secure and tamper-proof.

Data storage on Paypal and WorldPay systems, and the communication between them and the worldwide banking networks, is regularly audited by the banks themselves. Both Paypal and Worldpay ensure that they stay up-to-date with the latest versions of any third-party code that they use, and continually review their own proprietary code, using current best practice at all times.

The cardholder is further protected

Card issuers protect cardholders from fraudulent use of their card in a “card not present” environment, such as over the Internet or telephone. As the shopper did not sign for the goods they have the absolute right to demand a chargeback if those goods did not arrive or the card was used fraudulently.
