Security

Pure Romance takes the following types of security measures to protect the information you provide to it when you use the Website: use of technologies and policies such as limited access data-centers, firewall technology, secure socket layer certificate authentication and limitations of administrative access to our systems. In addition, it is Pure Romance’s policy not to send your credit card number via e-mail. In fact, this is a practice which Pure Romance encourages you to adopt in all of your internet activities.

The Website has been designed to accept orders only from browsers that permit communication through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology; for example, 4.0 versions or higher of Netscape Navigator, versions 5.01 or higher of Internet Explorer, versions 0.8 or higher of Firefox and versions 1.2 or higher of Safari.

While Pure Romance implements the above security measures on the Website, you should be aware that 100% security is not always possible. Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, either through e-mail or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others. No data transmission over the internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. As a result, while Pure Romance tries to protect your personal information, it cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to it via the Website, and you do so at your own risk.
