However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

The Studio also has satisfied its requirements under the Payment Card Industry ("PCI") security standards, which protects your credit card information by ensuring that it is processed, stored, and transmitted in a secure manner. We use your personal information to fulfill your orders and requests, and we do not retain your credit card information. We currently use a third-party processor for credit card information, so you provide your information directly to that processor, not to us.
