Transfer of data outside the EU

It may happen that the Data transit or are hosted on servers owned or owned by our partners, located outside the European Union. These servers may be located around the world, in countries whose laws may provide a different level of protection than ours. However, we are committed to taking the necessary steps to maintain an adequate level of privacy and security. For example, we may require our subcontractors and partners to implement measures to ensure the level of protection required by applicable Personal Data laws.

Security and confidentiality of payments

We attach great importance to your purchases being made under the best security conditions. Therefore, transactions are confidential, encrypted, and protected using the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol. When you pay for your order with a credit card or your PayPal (bank) account, the transaction takes place between you and (your bank) PayPal, or between you and Stripe. Both are international services recognised for their reliability in Internet transactions.
We ensure that several mechanisms are in place in the fight against fraud:
when you confirm your order, the payment interface service (PayPal, Stripe, …) checks the validity of your credit card number or your bank account and ensures that there are no problems.
With regard to anti-fraud processing for credit cards, we may perform checks to ensure the veracity of your identity and address. In this context, we may carry out checks on the information you provide us with, such as your surname, first name, e-mail address, delivery address, IP address used, your order history and transactions relating to the orders concerned, and finally the credit card used (type, country of issue and partial numbers reported by banks and payments, consisting of only the first four digits and the last two, as well as the expiry date). If necessary, we may ask you to e-mail us a copy of your identity document and proof of address dated less than three (3) months. These documents are not kept longer than necessary for verification purposes and are not passed on to third parties. We reserve the right to cancel the order in question and block your account. If we do not receive the requested documents within the deadline, we will cancel the order at our sole discretion.
As part of this processing, we remind you that you have all the rights listed in Articles 1-6 above.
We do not store your bank details on our servers. For each order, you will have to complete the appropriate fields during the purchase of your order. However, and only with your consent, the authorisation to proceed with the quick payment may be stored by PayPal or Stripe for use in future payments on the Site. To do so, simply check the appropriate box when confirming the payment authorisation.
You can request the cancellation of the PayPal fast payment authorisation at any time by going to the PayPal site and removing the consent in the authorisation section.
You can request to cancel your Stripe quick payment authorisation at any time by going to the Stripe website and removing the consent in the authorisation section.
