Payment & Security


Website security

To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple and secure, String Theory uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This encrypts and protects the data you send to us over the internet. If SSL is enabled then you will see a padlock at the top of your browser and you can click on this to find out information about the SSL digital certificate registration.

You will also notice that when you look at the location (URL) field at the top of the browser you will see it begin with ‘https:’ instead of the normal ‘http:’. This indicates that you are in secure mode.

Payment methods

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express credit cards and PayPal. Purchases made through the online store will be instantly charged to your provided credit card.

Credit card and order data is encrypted and secure. Our shopping cart is hosted on Shopify. It is Level 1 PCI compliant and uses 256-bit SSL certificates to keep order details secure.

Currency

All prices listed on our site are in Canadian dollars (CAD).

Faster Shopping

String Theory also provides the option for you to safely store your credit card details, making it quicker and simpler to shop with us. Your full card details will never be displayed, except for the last four digits so that you know which of your cards you are using. You can delete your card details by unchecking the box “remember my payment details” on the payment page.

Please note that you will need to re-enter card details if you change or add a new address. This means that if someone guesses your password and tries to place an order using your account, they will be unable to do so to any address other than those you have already saved. We hope you understand that this is a valuable precaution designed to protect your personal information.
