6. SECURITY ISSUES
The Company recognizes the importance of users’ personal data security through their online transactions and takes all necessary measures, using the most advanced methods, in order to ensure the maximum protection of these data. All information related to users’ personal information and users’ transactions are secure and confidential. The safety of the Company’s online store is achieved by the following methods:
There are two codes used to identify the user: the Login username and the Personal Identification Security Code (Password). Once entered by the user, these codes provide a safe access to users’ personal data. Users are able to change their Personal Identification Security Code (password) and their email as often as desired. In case of loss or leakage users should immediately inform the Company; otherwise the Company is not responsible for any use of their password by an unauthorized person. For security reasons, our Company recommends that users shall change the password regularly and avoid using the same or easily detectable codes (eg date of birth).
In order to ensure the confidentiality of the transfer of data and guarantee a secure on-line trading, the Company uses the encryption protocol SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) – 128bit. The protocol SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is currently a global standard to certify the web sites used by users for the encryption of data between Internet users and web servers. An encrypted SSL communication requires all information sent between a client and a server to be encrypted by the sending software and further be decrypted by the receiving software, protecting personal information during transmission. In addition, all information sent with SSL protocol, is protected by a mechanism that automatically verifies if the data have been altered during transmission. A firewall controls the access of users to Company’s servers, allowing the use of specific services by the customers/users while prohibiting access to systems and databases with confidential and/or other Company’s information. An encryption takes place when the user inserts personal data (password, address, phone number, etc.) throughout the website and at any point of use.
Nowhere throughout the website does the Company proceed to the storage of any information related to users’ credit card.
During the payment process the user is transferred to the website of Viva Payments.
Viva Payments institutions are licensed by the Bank of Greece. The same basic principles as applied to traditional banking transactions apply also in Viva Payments. All information transmitted by the user and beneficiary of the credit card to Viva Payments are confidential.
Viva Payments does not keep customer credit card data in its systems. All encrypted data is transmitted to the cooperating banks. Viva Payments customers’ personal and private data are only stored in encrypted form in the Viva Payments systems, without direct connection to the Internet. For more information about transaction security offered by Viva Payments company, the company recommends users visit the following web address: https: //www.vivapayments.com
In addition, once the user registries to Company’s website, his password is encrypted automatically and stored in the database of the Company with one-way encryption MD5.
All transactions made by users through the website shall be governed by the relevant provisions of the Consumer Protection Law (Law 2251/1994) which regulates issues relating to distance selling, but also by the provisions of European and International Laws on e-commerce.
Confidentiality is considered to be self-evident. The basic principles that apply to traditional trade market, apply in the case of e-commerce as well. All information transmitted by the user/member to the Company is confidential and the Company, by taking all necessary measures, uses this information only in cases of necessity. The following examples are part of these measures:
- Only authorized employees have access to information of users related to transactions, and only if necessary, eg for the processing of their applications.
- The Company does not reveal any information related to customers and/or their transactions, unless the Company is authorised in written by the respective user or it is imposed by a court decision or other public authority’s decision.
- In the event that third parties support Company’s systems, the Company shall ensure the respect of the principle of confidentiality.
- The user has the right to know about any data that concern him and which are held by the Company; these data may be corrected in case of an error demonstrated properly by the user.
- For its safety, the user shall handle all the information provided through the Company’s services as private and confidential and guarantee that they will not be revealed to third parties.
While visiting the neverswimwear.com website and when the visitor/user wishes to proceed with an order, he may be asked to hand over his personal information (name, email address, etc); by this way, the contact with the user is ensured in case that he wishes to be informed of the new products of the Company. Any personal data that the user fills in through the web pages and services of the www.sneakaces.com website are used by the Company solely to ensure the operation of the relevant service and may not be used by any third party, without complying with the provisions of the Greek Law 2472/97 in force related to the protection of personal data.
