We want you to be confident about ordering online and use secure socket layer (SSL) technology to ensure that your details are safe and that the information you provide is fully encrypted so that it cannot be read by third parties. When in the payment pages your browser will confirm that you are shopping in a secure environment by showing a locked padlock icon or an image of a key in the bar at the base of your screen.
At The Merchant Fox, we take security very seriously and our webpage is safe and secure.
Your browser will go into secure mode as soon as you access the 'checkout' pages, i.e. before you enter any personal or payment details. You can check that you are shopping in a secure environment by looking for either a locked padlock or a key icon in the grey bar at the bottom of your screen.
Being in 'secure mode' means that all of your details are encrypted to help keep them secure. Encryption creates billions of code combinations to protect each transaction made on our site, so your card details cannot be viewed by anyone else using the Internet. If you are using one of the more recent browser versions, our site supports 128 bit encryption and therefore keeps your details as safe as possible at all times.
We only accept orders that are placed using Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This technology prevents you from inadvertently revealing personal information using an insecure connection. During payment, we also ask for your card billing address as an additional security check. New security checks like the card signature code have recently been introduced to protect your credit card details online.
No credit or debit card details are stored once your order has been processed. This is why you can save your favourite delivery address but need to enter your card details each time you order.
We recommend that you always close down your Internet browser when you have finished shopping online, especially if you use a shared PC. This will delete temporary Internet cookies from any sites that you may have visited.
We will collect and store the personal data you give to us whilst using our website e.g. when you place an order or enter a competition. The type of information we collect includes your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and order details.
We collect and store this information to allow us to fulfil your orders and to occasionally send you special offers and product information. Your details may also be forwarded securely to our delivery and payment partners in order to fulfil each order. Data collected will not be passed on to any other third parties. The Merchant Fox do not store any credit card details. Any data stored is kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
Individuals registering their details or subscribing to our special offers do so on the understanding that they are aware of the intended purposes for the collection of their data. An option to opt-out will be given using an unsubscribe link in any newsletters we send you.
The Merchant Fox may send you emails from time to time but we would never send an email asking for your security information nor log in details, neither would we direct you to a web page that asks for this information.
If you receive an email that appears to be from The Merchant Fox that you suspect is fraudulent, do not click on any links contained within the email or provide any credit card or log on details.
