SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
To provide you with an increased level of security, online access to certain personal information may be protected with a password you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. VONMEL LUXE GIFTS will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you should be aware that, unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet could be guaranteed to be secure. As a result, VONMEL LUXE GIFTS does not represent, warrant or guarantee that personal information will be protected against loss, misuse or alteration and does not accept any liability for personal information submitted by you, nor for your or third parties’ use or misuse of personal information.
Below are some recommendations to help ensure that your online shopping is safe:
(1) If you use a public computer, always close your session when you are done. (2) Do not disclose your passwords; remember that somebody who knows your password can access your account. (3) When you create a password, use at least 8 characters – a combination of letters and numbers is always best. (4) Don’t use dictionary words, your name, your e-mail address or any other personal information that can be easily obtained. (5) It is also recommended to change your password often; you can do so by visiting the "Account" page. (6) Use a different password for your different accounts online. (7) Beware of unsolicited e-mails and unsolicited phone calls.
In addition, VONMEL LUXE GIFTS will never contact you to ask you information about your credit card number or bank account. Information like this should be sent to VONMEL LUXE GIFTS only when you do a transaction, by contacting VONMEL LUXE GIFTS directly or by modifying your account online. If you receive a suspicious e-mail with a link to update the information on your account, do not click on this link, instead, Log into your account on www.VonMel.com. If a stranger contacts or sends you an unsolicited email or asks you to confirm or give your password, personal or banking information, ignore the request and contact us immediately.
For security reasons and to prevent fraud, orders paid by credit card through this website will be approved by VONMEL LUXE GIFTS only if the billing name and address match the name and address on the buyer’s credit card. If the information does not match, your order will be refused, even if the transaction was pre-authorized by your bank. In that case, the amount of the order will be available for use only when the credit will be back in your account. This can take from three to five business days.
