Our e-commerce website and webshop is hosted by Squarespace, who use cookies to help our website run effectively and provide the best experience for our visitors and customers. We ask visitors to snaakshop.com to agree to cookie use by clicking ‘agree’ on our cookie banner. 

The cookies that Squarespace uses on our site may be viewed on your browser during your visit.

CUSTOMER AND PAYMENT INFORMATION:

 

CUSTOMERS:

Customers buying goods from snaakshop.com will need to provide the following as an essential requirement to complete their purchase:

- a valid credit or debit card number and expiration date

- billing account name and optional delivery name

- delivery and billing address

- contact details - email address for correspondence regarding purchase fulfilment and enquiries, and optional telephone number

Snaak Ltd is required by UK law to keep records of purchases and financial transactions for business accounting and taxation purposes; we keep records of financial transactions relevant to the current tax and accounting year, after which they are securely archived.

We do not ask you to create an account with snaakshop.com in order to complete a purchase.

We do not ask you to subscribe to a newsletter, or further marketing emails by snaakshop.

 

PAYMENT:

It is necessary for Snaak to collect personal information from our online customers for the essential purpose of fulfilling purchases made by our customers.  Sale of goods between customers and Snaak is a contractual agreement by which customers voluntarily give payment, identity, billing and delivery information in order to receive the goods paid for; please review our Sale of Goods Policy here: Terms

Our customer payments are handled via Squarespace, which connects our e-commerce webshop with payment processors PayPal and Stripe.

 

Squarespace supports security protocols up to TLS 1.2. and uses 2048 bit and SSL encryption on all pages excepting checkout pages; our Squarespace checkout page is protected by Level 1 compliant, 128 bit SSL encryption to keep customers’ credit card data safe and secure during the checkout process.  When a customer checks out on our shop page, they will see a lock icon in their browser. This means that Secure 128 bit SSL encryption is enabled.

Snaak also uses HSTS Secure for an added layer of security.

 

SSL SECURITY:

WHAT IS SSL?

Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a technology that secures the connection between your browser and the website you’re visiting. To verify that SSL is protecting a page, look for a URL beginning with https://, instead of http://, and a green, closed padlock icon. This allows visitors to navigate the website and submit information through a secure connection.

SSL provides three important security benefits:

· Privacy: Encrypts the connection between the browser and web server and securely transmits information to prevent improper use

· Data integrity: Prevents unauthorized parties from altering data 

· Authentication: Protects against impersonation by requiring web server proof of identity

Sensitive card data is never handled by Snaak or Squarespace. It goes directly to the payment processor’s servers; Squarespace and Snaak does not have access to this information. 

PayPal and Stripe are GDPR Compliant – you may review their Privacy Policies here:

https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full

https://stripe.com/gb/privacy

 

Squarespace, PayPal and Stripe are also PCI-DSS compliant.  PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a framework for developing a robust payment card data security process—including prevention, detection and appropriate reaction to security incidents.
