We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online, including:
  • use of firewalls

While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure website and business, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins, and we cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place and, to the maximum extent permissible by law, we will not be liable to you for any such occurrences.
 
Credit Cards
If you choose to pay for our products by credit card, your complete credit card details are not stored by Paralogic and cannot be accessed by Paralogic staff. However we can access your credit card's expiry date and the first and last 3 digits of the card. This allows us to confirm with you that we have the correct credit card information. We also store an encrypted token which allows us, and only us, to bill or refund your credit card as required by you.
We also use eWay, a third party payment gateway, to process credit card payments. Your credit card details are encrypted and securely stored by eWay. You should review eWay’s Privacy Policy and Security information to ensure you are satisfied.
