5.1 SECURITY AND LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

 

We take the security of your personal information seriously and use a variety of measures based on good industry practice to keep it secure. Nonetheless, transmissions over the internet and to our website, and our social media pages may not be completely secure, so please exercise caution. When accessing links to other websites, their privacy policies, not ours, will apply to your personal information.

We employ security measures to protect the personal information you provide to us, to prevent access by unauthorised persons and unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do everything possible to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any personal information during its transmission to us online. You accept the inherent security implications of using the internet and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security unless we are at fault.

If you are using a computer or terminal in a public location, we recommend that you always log out and close the website browser when you complete an online session for your security. In addition, we recommend that you take the following security measures to enhance your online safety: When creating a password, we recommend using at least 8 characters with a combination of letters, numbers and special characters. We recommend you frequently change your password – you can do this by going to “My Account” and clicking “Change name, email or password”. Keep your passwords private. Remember, anyone who knows your password may access your account. Avoid using the same password for multiple online accounts.

 We will never ask you to confirm any account or credit card details via email. If you receive an email claiming to be from MAIMAICO asking you to do so, please ignore it and do not respond.

We use Internet standard encryption technology ("SSL" or "Secure Socket Layer" technology) to encode personal data that you send to us when placing an order through the Website. To check that you are in a secure area of the Website before sending personal information to us, please look at the bottom right of your website browser and check that it displays an image of a closed padlock or an unbroken key.

MAIMAICO uses Wix Stores and Wix Payments to process transactions. Wix Payments complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).  The PCI DSS is the highest information security standard for organizations or companies that accept credit card payments. This standard provides protection of the privacy and confidentiality of the card's data used to complete the online transaction.  PCI Compliance helps to create a secure environment by improving the quality of the cardholder data in order to reduce the rate of credit card fraud cases. In addition, it ensures that the data for each payment is stored securely in a tamper-proof manner.  More information can be found at the Wix Data Processing Agreement – Users.

 Additionally, Wix Stores only works with payment gateways that offer the highest level of security certification (PCI DSS Level 1).  If you are shopping with Paypal, please visit https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/home for more information. 

Our website, and social media pages may contain links to other websites run by other organisations which we do not control. This policy does not apply to those other websites so we encourage you to read their privacy policies. We specifically disclaim responsibility for their content, privacy practices and terms of use, and we make no endorsements, representations or promises about their accuracy, content or thoroughness. Your disclosure of personal information to third party websites is at your own risk.

Where applicable, you have the right to data portability of your information and the right to be informed about any automated decision-making we may use.
