SAFEGUARDING YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Protecting your information is of primary concern to Master/slave & VGS. We store the information that we collect on a secure server. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no transmission of information over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It is possible that third parties not under the control Master/slave & VGS may be able to access or intercept transmissions unlawfully. While VGS will use all reasonable attempts to keep your information secure, we cannot absolutely guarantee that security. Thus, any information that you transmit to us is at your own risk.
FRAUD ALERTS: PROTECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You may come in contact with websites, e-mails or texts that try to lure you into providing personal information with the offer of Vincent's gift shop's gift card. VGS does not sponsor these offers nor are we affiliated with the promotion originators. If you become aware of any potentially fraudulent activity on a website or in an e-mail or text, please forward the information to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at +612 95697810 so that we can follow up. We take these matters, and the protection of our customers' sensitive information, very seriously.
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMER PRIVACY
Protecting the privacy and security of Master/slave & VGS customer information is a top priority for Master/slave Pty Ltd. In some cases, we may have partners with outside vendors to help facilitate transactions. When that is the case, we work closely with the vendor to ensure that the transaction is appropriately handled and all the information you provide is treated with the utmost care.
To sell and fulfill online purchases that customers choose to ship internationally, VGS partners with Australian Post. We choose to use Australia as the company assures us that they will carefully process your personal information, with at least the same level of privacy protection set forth in the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles as established by the U.S. Department of Commerce and approved by the European Commission. Australia Post also agrees not to sell, transfer, or otherwise use your information other than for executing international shipping orders. When you identify your VGS order as being shipped internationally, VGS will facilitate your secure Checkout transaction. On the Checkout page you will be required to submit credit card and personal information (name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address and phone number) to VGS to complete your order. Once you place your order, you will be prompted to confirm whether you would like to receive future marketing communication from VGS.
Upon completion of your order, VSG will then ship approved orders to you via Australia Post services. We take every step carefully to ensure you receive your goods. We take no responsibilities for parcel lost on transit via Australia post. So please buy at your own risk. To minimise this risk, we attempt to offer every master/slave customer the option for registered post parcels. This we have found to be most adequate for parcel safety and tracking. You will be presented with a parcel tracking code when you choose to purchase the registered post parcel option. We encourage you to do so.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of personally identifiable information transmitted to us using this website. To guard your information, our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL encrypts your credit card number, name and address so only Master/slave Pty Ltd is able to decode your information. Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information.
To be sure your connection is secure, look at the bottom status bar of your browser window. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser) the SSL is active and your information is secure. Most browsers offer additional security alerts as well. If for some reason you are unable to connect to our secure server, please call us on +612 95697810 .
We also ask customers to carefully review their accounts and immediately report any unexpected activity to Master/slave and their issuing bank or credit card company. Additionally, we are asking all our customers to take measures to help protect personal information in their online accounts, including the following:
· Install the latest security updates and anti-virus software on your computer to help prevent malware and viruses
· Reset your e-mail account password
· Use complex passwords (a minimum of 7 alpha/numeric cAsE sEnsitive characters)
· Do not use the same password on more than one website
· Do not share your password with others
· Sign out/log off website sessions so that your session is closed and cannot be accessed by another user on the same computer, especially when using a public computer or terminal
· Visit these additional resources:
