How I Secure Your Information
Securing your information is my priority. Whether you are shopping online or call your order in, I use reasonable security measures to protect the confidentiality of personal information.
Hard Copy and Electronic Storage Protections
Personal information that is maintained in my office is subject to physical, administrative, and technical controls as well. Hard copies of private information are maintained in locked locations or cabinets with similar restrictions for electronic storage of private information. When disposed of, the information is shredded, destroyed and erased. I also protect the credit or debit card information we collect during transactions. I comply with industry requirements known as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI Standards). These standards require safeguards for handling and securing customer information. These include using secure networks; encryption or other protection of cardholder data; physical and technical access controls; monitors and tests of security systems; and information security policies.
If you processed your payment via PayPal, it is assumed PayPal complies with PCI standards.
