Why do we collect this information?

The information we gather from customers helps us to personalize and continually improve your shopping experience with www.arpitamehta.in. The primary reason we gather information is for order processing, shipping and customer service. For example, we may contact you to provide an update on your order, information regarding the shipping status or to clarify questions related to your order. We also use this information to improve our products, services, website content and navigation, prevent and detect frauds or abuses of our Website and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf.

What steps does Website in take to ensure security when shopping online?

When you place orders or access your account information, we offer the use of secure socket layer (SSL) technology. The SSL encrypts all information you put in before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information, we have employed reasonable and current Internet security methods and technologies. The Payment Gateway makes use of 128-bit SSL technology to encrypt credit card and billing information while it is transmitted over the internet. We do not record or retain your card information at all as it is directly passed over to the payment gateway for processing through the 28-bit SSL, which is the highest level of internet security available today. When you make a purchase online, either a solid key or a locked padlock icon will appear in the lower right of your browser window. This icon indicates that your transaction session is secured through SSL.

The information is sent to your card issuer's bank over a secure, proprietary connection. When the authorization process is complete – this takes around five seconds – you receive an approval or decline response in your browser, and we are informed appropriately to initiate the shipping process.
