Common Questions:

 

How secure is the PayPal site?

 

The PayPal site is highly secure. PayPal uses industry-leading technology to keep your information safe.

PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, their server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.

Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.

What Makes PayPal So Secure?

  • Technology
    PayPal’s state-of-the-art fraud models and proprietary fraud engine work together to help stop fraudulent transactions before they happen. In addition, PayPal stays at the forefront of security, developing many anti-fraud technologies every year.

  • Experience
    With PayPal, you've got the industry's most experienced fraud team on your side. PayPal processes billions of dollars in payments each year, allowing them to continually perfect  anti-fraud protections. As a result, PayPal's loss rate is significantly lower than the industry average.

  • Privacy
    PayPal is committed to protecting the privacy of users. When you send money using PayPal, recipients (such as LJTC) never see your credit card numbers. We only see your email address, date of sign-up, and whether or not you have completed PayPal's verification process.

 

Links

LJTC may provide links to other third party websites, and other websites may provide links to the LJTC website. Third party websites operate according to their own terms of use and privacy policies. LJTC has no control over such third party websites, and therefore you acknowledge and agree that LJTC is not responsible for the availability of such third party sites, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites. You further acknowledge and agree that LJTC will not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites.

 

How We Protect and Store Personal Information

In this policy, we use the term "personal information" to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider personal information to include information that has been made anonymous so that it does not identify a specific user.

We store and process your personal information as compliant with Payment Card Industry standards. We protect your information using physical, technical, and administrative security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure and alteration. Some of the safeguards we use are firewalls and data encryption, physical access controls to our data centers, and information access authorization controls.

 

Changes to Our Policy

LJTC may amend this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information, we will notify you by posting a prominent announcement on this page.
