This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information to PayPal UK via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When our order form, hosted on the PayPal UK site, asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as the PayPal checkout, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.

While PayPal UK uses SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information that is provided to us by PayPal UK, or collected directly on this site, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your address), or if a user no longer desires our service, the user can contact us and we will correct, update or remove that user's personal data.
