Security Capabilities & Policy for Transmission of Payment
Collecting & Using Information
When you place an order through this website, we need to know your name, e-mail, phone number, address and credit card details if paying by credit card. This allows us to process and fulfill your order successfully. It also helps us in maintaining your account.
Protecting Customer Information
When you place orders, we use a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the sensitive customer data we collect is protected by several layers of encryption and several layers of security to prevent unauthorised access.
Credit Card Details
All credit card payments are processed securely through the eGate Payment Gateway and ANZ. Payment by credit card is the fastest way to receive your order as there is no clearance delay. Garden Life does not store any credit card information on our servers.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information. They allow you to place your online order and to login once you are subscribed. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that. You will need cookies enabled to use the Garden Life website.
Payment Gateway Info
Our payment options presently available are limited but, most importantly, safe and secure. We offer Credit card payments for general users and Purchase Orders for approved wholesale customers. Credit card payments are made directly through a 128 bit SSL Encryption software to ensure your personal details are kept safe. None of your payment details are stored. This ensures you will be happy with the security of your transaction. While every attempt has been made to protect the privacy of visitors to our website, Garden Life accepts no fault if these systems result in a breach of privacy.
