Security of your personal data
Internet transactions between this website and your browser are encrypted and transferred via the HTTPS protocol using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).
We are bound to safeguard your personal data, as well as all electronic transactions. We require by means of a contract from every trustworthy third party handling your personal data on our behalf to do the same.
Nowadays, the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol is the leading technology globally for website users’ authentication and encryption of data shared between users and web servers. SSL-encrypted communications involve a process during which all information exchanged between the user and the server is encrypted by the sending software and decrypted by the receiving software, thus ensuring the protection of personal data during transmission. Moreover, all the information sent using the SSL protocol is also protected by a mechanism that verifies whether it has been modified during transmission. In this way, we are able to encrypt all your personal data and prevent third parties from having access to them during their online transmission. Each time that you enter a webpage where a transaction of details or personal data takes place, a padlock icon will appear on your screen, confirming that your transaction is protected.
The online store Light Blue does not disclose or publicise users’ personal data and information. Personal data are exclusively used for the proper execution of transactions. All information is securely encrypted.
