Secure Shopping

EBIKENZ is conscious of the need for privacy and security for your Internet shopping experience.

We use sophisticated encryption technology. This means at the checkout, servers and your PC encrypt (scramble) everything that you enter into your computer, such as credit card details, billing and delivery address. Because it is encrypted, other computers are unable to make sense of it, therefore keeping this information private. 

There are visual clues on screen that tell you when you have entered a secure environment: at the bottom of your browser, the key or padlock icon, which is normally broken, becomes solid and the address of the document you are accessing begins with https:// (secure hypertext transfer protocol).

As part of the software used by EBIKENZ there are secure processes built into the store. Specifically the engine ensures:

·         Every order has a unique number

·         Every order is logged in a robust database

·         All your payment details can only be retrieved by EBIKENZ in an encrypted session

·         Confirmation emails of your order are sent to you the customer
