Sharperimage.com is committed to protecting your privacy. In order to complete your order or to satisfy your request for information, you will be asked to provide us with certain personal information. We offer 1024-bit SSL encryption, which encrypts your personal and credit card information as it is transferred over the Internet.
We electronically verify each order with the credit company, returning an order confirmed message only if the issuing bank authorizes it. We do not store your credit card information in our system. Our experienced staff then manually checks all orders which still appear unusual, canceling any order we feel is not valid.
If you are ever a victim of credit card fraud, the Fair Credit Act specifies that your credit card company can hold you liable for no more than $50 in fraudulent charges to your account. With sharperimage.com, you'll be reimbursed for any amount up to $50 billed to you by your credit card company for fraudulent charges to your account if the credit card number was obtained from purchases made at sharperimage.com while using our secure server. For this protection, you must promptly notify your credit card company of any fraudulent charges and follow the procedures for doing so as outlined in your credit card agreement.
