Payment: PayPal

Service provided by PayPal. Their user agreement can be found here.

About 3D-Secure used by PayPal: Our aim is to balance convenience and security, so we are adding this additional level of security in certain cases in order to keep your account safe. We will not ask for it every time and most of the time you should be able to pay with PayPal by just entering your email address and your PayPal password. 3D-Secure is the secure protocol designed to ensure enhanced security and strong authentication for you when you use your debit or credit cards for online purchases. It is called, depending on the card type, “MasterCard SecureCode”, “Verified by Visa” and, in the case of American Express cards, “Safekey”. In the future when you transact, you may be asked to provide a special security code to the card issuing bank in order for the bank to authorise the online transaction when prompted in the PayPal payments page. Card issuing banks have different methods of generating and delivering these codes and so if you don’t know your 3D-Secure passcode or password, and you are not being given the option to enrol online in the bank’s pop up screen, then you will need to contact your bank. Please note that this is not your PayPal account password.

SECTION 5 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
