1.2 Security and Quality of Personal Financial Information
At Fat Prophets we consider the security of your information to be of paramount importance. We have implemented security measures designed to provide the peace of mind you should expect when purchasing goods over the internet.
In order to properly process subscriptions, Fat Prophets collect email address, full name, billing address and credit card information. We have taken security measures, consistent with international information practices, to protect your personal information. These measures include technical and procedural steps to protect your data from misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, loss, alteration, or destruction.
Credit card information is transmitted using secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. Fat Prophets does not store credit card information collected during the subscription process. We automatically delete credit card details upon the completion of an order, and therefore retain credit card details for the shortest possible time. If you’re uncomfortable using your credit card online, we also accept payment by money order, cheque, and direct deposit.
Fat Prophets ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
