How We Protect your Financial Information during Checkout

No Financial information is taken on MyGypsyStore.com. All information that is submitted in terms of bank cards, credit cards, debit cards, or bank transfers occur on Paypal.com. We do not take any card information or bank information on MyGypsyStore.com. We only allow for one to register and store their Billing and Shipping information on our website. This feature is to shorten the process for a Buyer to purchase on the website again in the future. This feature is to also verify Sellers on the website. We do not take, save, nor process any payments whatsoever directly on MyGypsyStore.com. All this critical information is done off our servers on Paypal.com. The API between Paypal.com then solely communicates with our website that the transaction was successfully made, or declined.

What Automated Decision Making we do with our User Data

User Data is submitted to Paypal when a purchase is made or declined. The Paypal API then relays information back to our website to allow either a purchase to go through, or to be declined with the information from the API. As for SPAM, Spam is flagged, and then the user who is spamming has their IP blocked from our system. Additionally, abusers of the website terms or conditions are banned from the Website.
