Our Online Shop: The Art in the Heart Marketplace

The General Data Protection Regulations mean that we are legally bound to explain how we look after your data. The website uses an SSL certificate using SHA-256 with RSA Encryption to encrypt data between the website server and the user. We use the latest WordPress software and plugins, and these are maintained on a regular basis by our developers to ensure that your data is as secure as possible. We use Amazon Web Services to host the website and store data, in a UK-based data centre. Customer and order data is shared with our sellers to fulfil orders, but we do not share this data with 3rd-parties beyond the data processors required (such as PayPal, the hosting company, transactional email services etc). We take appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorised access, disclosure, modification, or unauthorised destruction of personal data. We use Paypal to process card payments – this is conducted off-site and subject to Paypal’s security and privacy policies and as such the website does not store any payment card details.
