Terms and Conditions
- Sales and Online Security
When using A Vida’s web pages, there are situations in which we will collect, store and use personal information. These situations include:
- Placing an order for home delivery
- Placing an order for showroom collection
When undertaking these actions, we will collect certain information from you including but not limited to:
- Billing address
- E-mail address
- Credit, debit card or other payment information
As we are always looking to enhance our customer’s experience while using A Vida’s web pages, use of the website is monitored and anonymous data on customers’ use of the website is recorded.
A Vida may also collect other information such as the URL you have come from, geographical location, I.P address, browser used and other data.
We will never sell or share your details with third parties.
To ensure your online security and prevent online fraud, A Vida employs the latest SSL (Secure Socket layer) and encrypts all payment information.
If the URL of a secure page begins with "https://", the "s" indicates a secure channel to the server. Also, when security (SSL) is present, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome display a padlock icon, which is closed once a secure channel is established.
SSL uses public-key encryption using keys of various sizes, 40-, 56-, 128-bit, etc. The larger the key length and number of possible keys, the more difficult it is for unauthorised persons to decrypt or read the message. For example, messages encrypted with a 128-bit key are much more secure than a message encrypted with a 40-bit key.
The size of the key is tied to a specific browser installation. This secure site only accepts browsers with minimum encryption strength of 128-bit. The site provides the maximum level of encryption supported by your browser. When you use this site at work, only the browsers provided or authorised by your employer should be used.
We want all A Vida customers to be 100% satisfied.
