Security and Confidentiality
Our website uses the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate, a security technology used to encode data that is transmitted between a user's computer and a website. The SSL protocol, through a data encryption process, prevents data traffic from being captured, or even changed in their course between the user's browser and the website with which it is related, thus assuring a secure purchase.
Following the input of credit card information, the transaction will be transmitted through the payment system of the website to the financial institution for authorization. O Boticario US LLC (“O Boticário”) does neither participate of the operation nor stores any payment data in relation thereto.
