What security features are used on the Paula's Choice website?
As an Internet-only company, it is a top priority for us to ensure that all transactions are secure! All order information is processed through our secure servers, which encrypt 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 from using your credit card when shopping or dining out. Both use standard phone lines, encryption coding, and authorisation processes.
Once your credit card is validated, we receive an authorisation and we process the order. Your credit card information is encrypted throughout the 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.
