Necessity is dedicated to keeping your details private. Any information, we collect in relation to you, is kept strictly secured. We do not pass on/sell/swap any of your personal details with anyone. We use this information to identify your orders, provide you with our monthly newsletter and to personalise your shopping experience with us; that’s all.
Whenever you use our web site, or any other web site, the computer on which the web pages are stored (the Web server) needs to know the network address of your computer so that it can send the requested web pages to your Internet browser. The unique network address of your computer is called its “IP address,” and is sent automatically each time you access any Internet site. From a computer’s IP address, it is possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer, but otherwise it is anonymous.
We do not keep a record of the IP addresses from which users access our site except where you have specifically provided us with information about yourself, in which case we also record your IP address for security purposes. An example of this would be when proceeding to a checkout to finalise an order you may wish to make. After completing the form provided, your IP address will be stored along with a transaction number that allows us to track your order.
We use Google Analytics which collects Display Advertising information for Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. You can choose to opt-out of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics opt-out page.
Necessity is very concerned about your security on the web. Internet transactions are conducted via a digitally signed, secure SSL server. Your credit card details are kept highly secure and are not transmitted via email. The page which collects your credit card details is high-grade encrypted before being sent over the internet. This encryption makes it extremely difficult for unauthorised people to view information traveling between computers.
N-SIPS uses industry standard Secure Socket Layer (256-bit) encryption technology to secure communication sessions with customers and merchants. Using firewalls in front of the Payment Gateway (N-SIPS) and within the system, it restricts access to information regarding the payment transactions. The N-SIPS only allows customers with browsers supporting SSL-128-bit or higher encryption technology to access the payment facility. This facilitates secure transmission of transaction details. You can verify that your session is secure by locating the lock icon in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
