LOG IN DETAILS
Whenever you log in or make a payment on openmercado.com, we employ Secure Socket Layers (SSLs), which encrypt data so it cannot be easily accessed by third parties who might have unauthorized access to your computer. We never store any financial details.
Whilst your payment is being authorized, look out for https// in the address line of the page you are directed to. This indicates that your data is being transferred using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protection. We use industry standard data encryption to make sure no unauthorized parties can access your payment details. We have also introduced secure code services for customers using Visa and Mastercard to shop on openmercado.com.
PHISHING AND INTERNET FRAUD
Phishing refers to the practice of fraudulently contacting people and asking them to provide confidential information, such as bank details, home address and date of birth. From time to time, we will contact our customers asking them to confirm personal details relevant to their order, such as shipping address or telephone number. If you are in any doubt about whether an email you have recieved is in fact from openmercado.com, please contact our Customer Service Team by clicking here before replying, so we can confirm that the email was in fact sent by us.
