Security to protect your information
Roofing Kits Direct employ security measures to protect customer information from being accessed by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.
Our checkout process is secured by HTTPS / TLS encryption and it is safe for our customers to purchase from our store.
TLS (Transport Layer Security) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and secure. TLS is the industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.
Additionally, our store only works with Stripe and Paypal payment gateways which offer the highest level of security certification (PCI DSS Level 1).
In prudence and reality, while we take all reasonable steps to protect customer information, customers must accept that no internet data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure from access by unintended recipients and customers will not hold us liable for any breach of security unless of course, this is due to our negligence. We will retain customer information for as long as the law requires then in ongoing data management practices permanently remove such information.
