We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone. In addition, your personally identifiable information resides on a secure server that only selected personnel and contractors have access to. When paying you will be redirected to the PayPal website for payment via credit cards and they provide strong encryption to sensitive information (such as credit card information) using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure that your personally identifiable information is safe as it is transmitted to us.

While there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet, we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies, which do the same. We cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the Website, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.

Credit Card Security

We work diligently to protect the security of your personal information, including credit card information. Your credit card details do not get processed or transmitted through or via the Deals4kiwis.co.nz website as all transactions are processed through a secure payment service provider. Deals4kiwis.co.nz uses PayPal to provide this secure service. PayPal hosts and manages the payment page. All transaction sessions are stored and processed in secure encrypted strings. Your credit card details are not held by Deals4kiwis and cannot be accessed by Deals4kiwis staff. However they may be held by PayPal (review their Privacy Policy).
