Our Site Security
We use appropriate security safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access. Any personal information you provide to Fine Vintage Ltd. is exchanged on a secure server. We use one of todays most advanced security systems, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to encrypt, or encode, information you send to us in the order process. The encryption process protects information, such as your credit card number, and billing information by scrambling it before it is sent from your computer. Only once we receive your information is it decoded, and we make all reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our own systems. All information is also stored behind a firewall to ensure further protection.
Warning: e-mail is not a secure means to send personal information, as it is not encrypted. We strongly encourage you to use our secure registration process when registering online.
