Safe and secure purchase
hibay.org is concerned about the safety and security of our
customers. Accordingly, we have put a number of technological protections
in place to ensure that our transaction process is extremely safe and that
our customers' information is secure.
The overwhelming majority of online transactions are completed without
incident. While the possibility of being defrauded by a third-party
cheater is minimal, there are some risks. hibay.org has developed the
following guidelines to help ensure that your online shopping experience
is safe and secure.
Secure Transaction Guidelines
|Tip 1: Protect your passwords. |
1. If using a public computer or terminal,
always log out when you complete an online session.
2. Keep your passwords private. Remember,
anybody who knows your password may access your account.
3. When creating a password, use at least 8
characters--a combination of letters and numbers is best. Do not use
dictionary words, your name, e-mail address, or other personal information
that can be easily obtained. It is also recommended that you frequently
change your password. If you need assistance with this, visit our Changing
Your Password page in your Account Section.
4. Avoid using the same password for multiple
|Tip 2: Be wary of unsolicited e-mail and telephone
1. hibay.org will never e-mail or call a
customer and ask that they disclose or verify their hibay.org password,
credit card, or banking account number. Such information should only be
submitted when completing an order on hibay.org, registering for hibay
Payments, contacting hibay.org directly, or when making updates to Your
Account . If you receive a suspicious e-mail with a link to update your
account information, do not click on the link--instead go directly to
www.hibay.org and then to your account.
2. If you are contacted or receive an
unsolicited e-mail from an unknown entity, and are asked to confirm or
provide your password or personal or banking information, simply disregard
the request and report the incident to hibay.org for investigation.
3. If you receive a suspected spoofed
hibay.org e-mail, or discover a fake hibay.org Web site, please report
the incident to hibay.org.
