Linked Payment Processing Accounts
Any “linked” payment processing accounts with third parties (such as PayPal) will appear in your profile on the Site, and you will be able to view at least certain summary information for all such accounts.
About PayPal Security: When you click on the purchase button, you will go to PayPal, the global leader in online payments, to pay for products or services at the Site at no extra charge to you. PayPal makes its money by charging the Site a commission, not you.
PayPal gives you the option of creating an account with PayPal or simply paying directly with your credit card or debit card. If you choose to create an account, the sign-up process is quick, easy, and safe. With a PayPal account, you will be able to quickly and conveniently pay online for services and products worldwide.
PayPal uses industry-leading technology to keep your credit card information safe. It automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to PayPal’s computer using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol with an encryption key length of 128-bits – the highest level commercially available. Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.
PayPal is committed to protecting the privacy of its users. When you pay for my services using PayPal, I will never see your bank account number or credit card number. I only receive an email from PayPal with the following information: the amount you paid, for which services, your email address, date of sign-up, and whether or not you have completed PayPal’s verification process.
We at the Site (rolandbal.com) want you to be satisfied with your purchase. If you have any questions or problems, please let us know by contacting us directly at this email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You are entitled by law to withdraw, without having to give any reasons, within fourteen (14) days from the day the product is ordered on the Site and has been received by you, as the customer or the day the service is ordered on the Site and its performance has commenced.”
