How do we ensure the confidentiality of your data?

We ask our partners and group companies to maintain a similar level of protection as we provide for your personal data.



We apply the necessary precautions to guarantee the confidentiality and security of your data.

We prevent your data from being distorted, damaged, destroyed or accessed by unauthorised third parties.



Important: your bank details are encrypted on Parfum Francis Kurkdjian servers. Payments are processed via a secured payment platform, involving additional verifications, in order to guarantee the security of purchases made on www.franciskurkdjian.com, and combat fraud.

 

The details you provide of your payment card when placing an order are always encrypted prior to transit using an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol.

 

In addition, some personal data collected while placing an order on our website www.franciskurkdjian.com can be processed for the purpose of securing payments and combating fraud.

Parfum Francis Kurkdjian analyses, on the basis of objective criteria, the risk of fraud related to each order.

In this case, the controlled order will not be shipped until the supporting documents have been received and analysed by Parfum Francis Kurkdjian. The order may be cancelled if the documents received do not guarantee the security of the order and its payment.

The personal data collected will be kept until the final validation of the payment by the customer's bank and will then be deleted without undue delay.
