Processing your payments online

Our website checkout process uses Stripe which is secured by HTTPS / TLS encryption and is safe for you to purchase. 

 

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.

 

Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.

Processing your payments

in-salon

In order to process your payment we use a third party payment processor, EVO Payments International GmbH. EVO Payments International GmbH collects, uses and processes your information, including payment information, in accordance with their privacy policies, which is available here: evopayments.co.uk/privacy

 

We are PCI DSS compliant, which means that we adhere to the guidelines of keeping your card details secure.

We may also use your personal data to protect our rights or property (or the rights or property of others) and to enforce our rights and pursue available remedies.

 

In some cases, we will need to use your personal data to fulfil a legal obligation (for example, if we receive a legitimate request from law enforcement agencies), and in other cases (such as the detection of fraud or ensuring the security of the site) we will rely on our legitimate interests as a business to use your data in this way.
