Payment Security

Parenting Connections Australia places critical importance on the security of your personal and payment information. Our privacy policy provides information regarding the use and protection of your personal information. Unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility if your credit card is used in any fraudulent transactions on this site. We also recommend that all customers install and regularly update a comprehensive virus checking and firewall programme on their computers as general security. However, the following measures have been employed to protect your security when shopping on our site:
  • If you do not wish to enter your credit card details for transactions on this site, you may use PayPal or direct deposit as alternative payment methods. However, to ensure the security of credit card transactions on our site, we do not keep a record of your credit card information on our server. Credit card details are stored on systems provided by PayPal, a fully accredited secure payments processing company.
  • Parenting Connections Australia web site uses the "RapidSSL (TM)" secure socket layer (SSL) transaction system owned and operated by GeoTrust, Inc. With this system, ordering information is encrypted for security and for the comfort of visitors who are concerned about the safety of their credit card and other information. The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol has become the universal standard on the Web for authenticating Web sites to Web browser users, and for encrypting communications between browser users and Web servers. A secure internet session using SSL is identified by the 'https:' designator (instead of 'http:') in the browser address box and a small padlock in the browser footer.
