Information that we hold
Some of your personal information is shared with third parties such as Royal Mail and Hermes, so that your order can be delivered. Email information is generally used to send invoices, or correspondence which may relate to your order, or a query which has been raised. Occasionally we may need to contact you via telephone if there is an issue with your order.
Payments are collected using SSL (secure sockets layer) which is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browers remain private and integral. Wix payments comply with the PCI-DSS (payment card industry data security standard), which is managed by the PCI Security Standards Council.
Blossom Bits and Bags does not have access to any credit/debit card numbers or bank account information which has been used in a transaction for orders on our site. This information is held with either PayPal or your credit/debit card company. If paying by bank transfer, the only information we receive is your name, the amount and order number if you have included this in the transaction details.
