Our Privacy Policy


At Mercury Treasures, we realize that shopping online can feel a bit risky. However, the truth of the matter is that advances in secure server technology have made shopping at Mercury Treasures just as safe as using your credit card to shop around town or over the phone. Our goal is for you to feel as comfortable using your credit card at Mercury Treasures as you do everywhere else that you shop. To that end, Mercury Treasures has partnered with Verisign for all online credit card transactions.

Verisign, the leading provider of digital trust services, has been processing credit cards securely over the Internet since 1995 and currently provides secure payment services for more than 60,000 online merchants. Verisign's internet payment gateway supports the Internet's strongest security technologies, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology with 128-bit encryption.

These encryption technologies work with Netscape Navigator (versions 2.0 and above), Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above), and AOL (AOL 3.0 and above). All financial information submitted on Mercury Treasures's site is encrypted and digitally signed as it travels over the Internet using Verisign's industrial-strength combination of DES encryption and RSA public key technology.

Verisign transactions are protected by the highest levels of security available and ensure complete and total privacy for Mercury Treasures's online customers. Using your credit card affords you the added advantage of knowing that, in the event that there is a problem with your purchase, the credit card company will remove the purchase from your bill and Mercury Treasures will not be paid.

Furthermore, in the extremely unlikely event that shopping at Mercury Treasures leads to an unauthorized use of your credit card, most financial institutions either cover all of the resultant charges or limit your liability to $50 (refer to the Fair Credit Billing Act or your credit card agreement for further details).

Should the bank not cover this additional $50 liability, Mercury Treasures will cover it, provided that the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted from an error on the part of Mercury Treasures as a result of purchases made on Mercury Treasures through the secure server, and through no fault of your own. In short, using your credit card at Mercury Treasures is absolutely safe - we guarantee it.
