Privacy & Security FAQs

What will you do with my payment information?
We will never see your card details when you place your order online with us, nor do we store them.  They are encrypted and held on the SagePay and/or PayPal secure servers and are only ever accessed to confirm payment or in the event of a refund or in accordance with English Law.
If you are placing a mail order or telephone order (MOTO) with us we will require your card and billing address details, which will be safely destroyed immediately once the payment has been confirmed.

How is my personal information stored and is it secure?
All of your personal information (not card details, please see above) is stored on our secure, password protected server which is only accessible by our staff.  Should you wish to edit or remove this information you can contact us at any time, quoting your username, address and password.

What will you do with my personal information?
Your personal information will never be passed on to third parties for marketing purposes.  Edge of the World Ltd will only contact you regarding an order or to inform you of offers, promotions and competitions, and always with your prior consent.  If you have subscribed to our newsletter and wish to unsubscribe please follow the link at the foot of the next newsletter.
We will only ever release your personal information in accordance with English law or to associated reputable companies who form part of our service chain, i.e. a courier such as Parcel Force.

Is this site secure?
We do everything possible to ensure that your details are safe from online fraud.  www.edgeoftheworld.com undergoes regular and thorough testing by Security Metrics to ensure it is compliant with industry standards for data security. In addition our payment gateway, SagePay, uses Visa and Mastercard’s ‘3D Secure’ security system to protect against fraud, while the site’s payment gateway is encrypted to protect your card details (to be sure just look for the https:// in the Website URL, located in the web address bar on the payment page).

What is MasterCard® SecureCode™?
MasterCard SecureCode is a service to enhance your existing MasterCard account. A private code means added protection against unauthorized use of your card when you shop at participating online retailers.

How does MasterCard SecureCode work?
Once you've registered and created your own private SecureCode, you will be automatically prompted by your financial institution at checkout to provide your SecureCode each time you make a purchase with a participating online merchant. Your SecureCode is quickly confirmed by your financial institution and then your purchase is completed. Your SecureCode will never be shared with the merchant. It's just like entering your PIN at an ATM.

You can learn more about Mastercard Securecode and set up your online PIN by visiting the Mastercard website.

What is Verified by Visa?
If you like to shop online, you’ll be happy to know that there’s no safer way to pay for your purchases than using Visa.
If you’re the victim of identity theft or fraud and someone uses your Visa card, Visa make sure you get every single penny back. That means you can browse and shop in complete confidence.
If you sign up to Verified by Visa, you’ll get an even greater level of security. You’ll be able to shop online safe in the knowledge that every one of your purchases requires an authentication code before it can be processed.  Just like entering your PIN at an ATM.

How does Verified by Visa work?
It’s easy to set up and easy to use. Before Visa process your payment, you’ll see a personal message – a message that you provided when you signed up for Verified by Visa and that only you and your bank know about. This shows that the security screen you’re seeing is genuine. You’ll then be asked to enter your Verified by Visa password.

You can learn more about Verified by Visa and set up your online PIN by visiting the Verified by Visa or Visa websites.
