What data breach procedures we have in place
As a precaution, no financial information will be recorded or kept on Maori-Art.com. This is why 3rd party pay pal for example, and the option of bank to bank transfer are available methods for recording a transaction.

Once that transaction has been made, we will be notified, and the product will be sent out to the customer.
