When you make a purchase online from Patagonia Gifts, the information about your transaction is protected by one of the most widely used and trusted security systems on the Internet.
Patagonia Gifts uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to safeguard your credit card information, during online transactions. Using this widely accepted form of encryption, your transaction is delivered via a secured, encrypted transmission. For your protection, never put your credit card number or other sensitive information in un-encrypted email.
For added security, we use a trusted third party, 2Checkout, to process all credit card transactions. At no time do we store your credit card information on our system, and none of our employees have access to your credit card number. You will know that you are on an SSL secured page when the lock icon on the bottom of your web browser (such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer) becomes locked.
