Use of your Personal Information collected through Shopping Transactions on this Website
The information provided by you in order to make a purchase on theBay.com is collected to process your online transaction, ship your item(s), administer our post-purchase survey and maintain the accuracy of your information. In order to protect you and Silk Whispers from fraudulent transactions, Silk Whispers may provide your transaction-related information to a reputable third party organization to perform an address verification. This address verification is intended to ensure that the “bill to” address that you provide matches your credit card address.
This website strives to protect your personal information. For security of transactions, we use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any information you send to us electronically. The encryption process protects your information, such as your, billing and shipping information by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer. Once the website receives your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our system. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while this website strives to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
