When you purchase from Traderricks.com, we collect your name, billing and shipping addresses, phone number, email address and credit card information so we can process and ship your order. Rest assured, Trader Rick's respects your privacy and does not sell or share any of your information with any other companies or marketers.
Even though we are a small "chain" :) of two stores, we went with a big, well established company to host our website so that we could do our utmost to not only offer a great site, but also protect your information.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer (SSL) technology and stored using AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards to keep your data as secure as possible.
