Shared Data

We have business and technical partners whom we share data in order to process credit and debit card payments and provide a range of services, including for fraud protection purposes. They are bound by the Data Protection Act and must process the personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Data Protection Laws of the United Kingdom.

In case any fraudulent activity is detected on the website, or, without limitation, in connection with the breach of intellectual property rights through the use of the website, we may release personal information in order to comply with any applicable regulation or assert our rights as well as our business partners’.

Security

We endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information. However, we cannot guarantee the security of any data you disclose online. You accept the inherent security risks of providing information and dealing online over the Internet and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security unless this is due to our negligence or wilful default. 

Icon Cards takes security very seriously to make shopping online as safe possible.

Your browser will go into secure mode as soon as you access the 'checkout' or 'login' pages, i.e. before you enter any personal or payment details. You can check that you are shopping in a secure environment by looking for either a locked padlock or a key icon in the grey bar at the bottom of your screen.

Being in 'secure mode' means that all of your details are encrypted to help keep them secure. Encryption creates billions of code combinations to protect each transaction made on our site, so your card details cannot be viewed by anyone else using the Internet. If you are using one of the more recent browser versions, our site supports 128 bit encryption and therefore keeps your details as safe as possible at all times.

We only accept orders that are placed using Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This technology prevents you from inadvertently revealing personal information using an insecure connection. During payment, we also ask for your card billing address as an additional security check. New security checks like the card signature code have recently been introduced to protect your credit card details online. 

We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer financial details with any 3rd parties. No credit or debit card details are stored once your order has been processed. This is why you can save your favourite delivery addresses but need to enter your card details each time you order.

Emails

We will send email confirmation when you make an order. Therefore, if you do not see it in your inbox, please check your spam/junk folder and make sure to add us to your safe senders list.
