Shopping on the internet can feel risky and unsecure. What happens to the information you provide? In particular what happens to your credit or debit card details?
Details we require from you when placing an order are your name, delivery address, daytime contact number, card type, card number, expiry date and full postal billing address. Therefore card security is a high priority for us and we have taken every precaution to ensure that this information is collected and stored accurately, confidentially and without danger of unauthorised access. These details are not held online but held securely within our mail order system. www.bonsoiroflondon.com is a secure site that uses encryption technology to safeguard your details. Encryption technology provides billions of code combinations per order transaction and prevents other internet users from accessing your personal details during transmission.
