ONLINE STORE SECURITY
Journeys of the Spirit® uses Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the industry standard in transferring information to process your orders. The SSL encrypts, or translates, your order information into a highly indecipherable code, which is processed immediately. When you begin the transaction process, you will move into the secure area of our Site. Once you’ve entered, the page address (URL) will change from http to https, to let you know you are in a secure area. You will remain in this secure zone for the entire transaction process. After you have made a transaction, we cannot see any of your credit card information, nor do we have access to it, only your name, address, telephone number, email address and any message you have specifically put in the text box.
Journeys of the Spirit® does not participate in e-mail activities that are considered spam. Any e-mail sent on behalf of Journeys of the Spirit® is mailed to a client who has elected to receive promotions, special offers, or be contacted via e-mail.
If at any time you believe that Journeys of the Spirit® has not adhered to these principles, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will use all reasonable efforts to determine and correct the problem promptly.
