Security Policy


The information you provide to a The Paper Place web site covered by this policy is protected in
transit by using a network protocol called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL is the
industry standard technology for secure online transactions. A simple way to know
your transmission is protected is by referencing the URL. If it starts with https://
you can be assured that it is using SSL. Transactions are processed only from
secure browsers. These browsers encrypt the information sent using SSL, which
scrambles the data to make it extremely difficult for anyone who intercepts the
information to read it. The Paper Place has contracted with an internet commerce transaction
service vendor with the goal of protecting our customers’ personal and financial
information. Transmissions from this vendor to credit card processors also are
encrypted and sent via dedicated leased private circuits. In addition, the computers
housing the data are protected by physical security measures, including more than
one level of locked access.

REMINDER: In the event of an unauthorized use of your credit or debit card, you
must promptly notify the card issuer pursuant to its reporting rules and procedures.

Safeguarding Information

To minimize the risk of loss and/or additional expenses that could occur from
compromised cardholder information, The Paper Place merchants WILL NOT retain any of the
following information electronically:

  • Credit Card number
  • Credit Card expiration date number in the magnetic stripe
  • Security Code (CVV2 number)
  • Service Code -3 or 4 digit

The protection of your personal information is important to The Paper Place, and as a result, we
do not accept payment via email.

The Paper Place protects against unauthorized disclosures by limiting access only to those of our
employees who need the information to do their jobs.

The Paper Place’s E-Commerce Security Policy requires compliance with the Payment Card
Industry Data Security Standard
