It is well known that online purchases are statistically safer than using your credit card at a restaurant or department store. Credit card security experts note that online purchases are even far safer than traditional credit card transactions. Why? It is because the information entered on the commuter during your purchase is immediately encrypted into a scrambled message that can only be decrypted by an authorized computer.

What if there is a breakdown? If security does break down during your online shopping, the Fair Credit Billing Act is a federal law enacted to protect consumers from unfair billing practices, such as unauthorized charges, charges for unaccepted or undelivered goods and services and other disputed charges. Please keep in mind that under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. For your peace of mind and because we are fully confident in Shopify's site security, if your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, PhotonBuzz.com will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00. We will only cover this liability if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at PhotonBuzz.com.

In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
