How do we keep your data secure?
3.1 Data stored digitally
The information collected during the checkout process is stored on our website server. The Melt With Love website uses WordPress software and regular security patches and updates are applied as a matter of course. The software does not allow ‘guessable’ or memorable passwords. Financial transactions (including any of your card details) do not take place on the website but through our payment partner Paypal, whose security information can be viewed here.
Devices in our possession that have access to our WordPress account are as follows;
- HP Laptop – Password Protected.
- iPad – PIN Security & Fingerprint Authentication
- iPhone Mobile Device – PIN Security & Fingerprint Authentication
We employ security measures on all of our devices to ensure data is stored securely.
- Data stored as a hard copy
We print 1 document with your information present which includes a shipping label which is then placed on your parcel and the remainder sent to you. Second copies are not produced.

Information from Cookies:
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so. To enhance the security of your account, we encourage you set a strong password when you sign up to our website. Every password you use has to be easy to remember and hard to guess. A random set of numbers and characters make for a hard-to-guess password, but they’re also hard to remember. On the other hand, you’ll probably never forget your birthdate or the name of your first pet, but these make for very bad passwords, as they are increasingly easy to guess or find out.
