We take security on our website very seriously as we want to ensure that your data is only used how you want it to be.
We take appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure your information and to protect it against unauthorised or unlawful use, including:
-only sharing and providing access to your information to the minimum extent necessary, subject to confidentiality restrictions where appropriate, and on an anonymised basis wherever possible;
- using secure servers to store your information;

DATA RELATING TO PAYMENT METHODS
We only officially store your details if you create a Customer Account and you select ‘Save Payment Method’. This is only applicable for Apple Pay and card payments.
Through ‘Guest Checkout’ your payment details are only kept alongside your order so that we have the relevant information for processing any returns. The only data visible to Imouto Ltd. relating to your payment method is your billing address and the last 4 digits of your card number, if this option is used (this is so we can cross reference when processing returns).
For card payments, we use Stripe. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1 - this is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, etc.).
Saved payment methods on your Customer account
You can create an account and save payment methods during checkout or by using a ‘Sign In’ link through the navigation menu.
This store is connected to Stripe where you can securely save credit card payment information to your account. With a saved card, only the last few digits of the card will be visible to Imouto Ltd. This allows us to make sure that any refunds are processed to the right card relating to your order.
For more information about our privacy practices, if you have questions, or if you would like to make a complaint, please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com. We will endeavour to respond to you as quickly as possible and take privacy concerns very seriously.
