  • Privacy/Security


    This site is hosted by Yahoo! Store on secure servers and all orders are processed using Yahoo! Store's shopping cart. This checkout process uses industry-standard SSL (secure socket layer) technology to encrypt all personal information so that it cannot be read in transmission. For added security, credit cards are authorized after we confirm that the card is valid and has not been reported lost or stolen. We also verify that the "bill to" address provided matches that on the credit card. Please do not ever send us your credit card information via email, as email is not encrypted. You may visit and shop at this site without submitting any personal information until ready to make a purchase, at which time contact, billing and shipping information is required. Yahoo! collects this order information but may only use this information to process orders. Please see Yahoo!'s Privacy Policy for more information. Our order form collects customer information (such as name, address and credit card information) that is needed to process and bill an order. The contact information is used to send information about orders and specific company information to our customers, fulfill orders and get in touch with customers if necessary for customer service reasons. We may also use customer information for ella-studio.com marketing and promotional purposes. The customer may always opt out of receiving mailings.
