What security features are used on Paula's Choice?
As an internet-only company, ensuring that all transactions are secure is a top priority! All order information is processed through our secure servers, which encrypts all information before it is sent.
When you enter your credit card information on the order form, the encrypted information is automatically transmitted to a credit card gateway for online credit card approval. It's really no different than using your credit card in when shopping or dining out. Both use standard phone lines, encryption coding, and authorization processes.
Once your credit card is validated, we receive an authorization and process the order. Your credit card information is encrypted throughout this entire process and this system is secure.
When you begin the checkout process, you will see "https://" at the beginning of the Web address. This signifies that you have been transferred to the secure server. It may not appear on the content portions of the site or in the shopping cart prior to initiating the checkout process, which is normal. Encryption is only required when it is time to enter personal information, such as your credit card number, passwords, etc.
