However, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we make reasonable efforts to safeguard personal information once we receive it, we cannot warrant the security of information we receive.

YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION IS SECURE!
We care about the safety and security of your transaction. Gift Baskets Universe®’ Web Site uses EV-SSL (Extended Validation Secure Sockets Layer) to communicate with your browser software when you order from us online and thereby provide us with credit card or similar information. SSL is the industry standard security protocol; and EV-SSL is the ultimate verification that you are doing business with who the website claims to be, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept your credit card / transaction and order information that you send us when you submit your online order. Please visit Digicert for further details regarding EV-SSL certificates.
We take multiple precautions to safeguard your credit card data in our internal systems. Please see our CyberTrust certification for further information regarding our measures to ensure your transaction with Gift Baskets Universe® is completely safe and secure.

You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or accounts.
BANK OR CREDIT CARD LIABILITY
Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank or credit card company cannot hold you liable for more than $50 of unauthorized or fraudulent charges on a credit card.

If unauthorized use of your credit or debit card does occur, you must notify your card provider, in accordance with the agreement you have with the company.
