How does Khanijo protect your privacy?
We are committed to protecting your personal privacy. Khanijo will not give out your telephone number or E-mail address, except where needed to deliver a product or service you ordered. We will not give out your credit card number or any account information unless you authorize it, e.g., processing a credit card payment. In other words, we will not rent or sell your name, address, email address, credit card information or personal information to any third party without your permission. This information is collected primarily to ensure that we are able to fulfill your requirements and to deliver you a truly personalized shopping experience.
However, we must cooperate fully, should a situation arise, where we are required by law or statutory obligation or legal process to provide information about a customer. We may share non-personal, non-individual statistical or demographic information, in aggregate form, with our marketing partners, advertisers or other third parties for research and advertising purposes. In other words, we will not give out information that you purchased a specific product, but we may tell them how many customers purchased a product. If you have purchased from our store or subscribed to one of our newsletters, we may occasionally update you via E-mail of special new product arrivals, features or schemes on our site. We may also contact you if you have participated in one or more of our contests. If you choose not to receive updates when you enter a contest, it will not affect your chances of winning the same.
Are Credit Card Transactions Secure?
Khanijo uses the latest encryption technology and other methods to protect your credit card information. You can place your orders using Netscape’s SSL encryption (the Internet standard for secure transactions). In fact, shopping online with a credit card at Khanijo is even safer than using a credit card at a restaurant because we do not retain your credit card information. You can be assured that Khanijo offers you the highest standards of security currently available on the Net so as to ensure that your shopping experience is private, safe and secure. You need not worry about your credit card information falling into the wrong hands because your bank will authorize the credit card transaction directly without any information passing through us. In approximately 25-30 seconds (depending on your internet connection) your bank will issue an authorization number and the electronic receipt would be generated.
For more information about our credit card security and payment options, please send us a message from our Feedback section choosing support as the subject and we shall answer your queries.
