1. Our Security Safeguard

At Whirling Girl we don't just stand behind our merchandise. We also do our best to provide a safe and convenient online shopping experience.

That means we safeguard the integrity of our customers' credit card information. If your credit card or debit card ("credit card") is used in an unauthorized manner on our site (as determined by your credit card company), we will cover whatever amount your credit card company doesn't up to $50.

If you're not quite comfortable shopping online, or would prefer to make your purchase via telephone, just give us a call at 206-779-1028. We'll be happy to take your Whirling Girl order right over the phone.


2. Credit Card Safety

Protecting the safety of your credit card information is important to us.

At Whirling Girl, you never have to worry about your credit card safety. If unauthorized charges are made to your credit card as a result of shopping at, you will not be held accountable.

Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, federal law limits your responsibility for unauthorized charges up to $50.00. This means that your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges.

If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, Whirling Girl will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00.

Whirling Girl will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card for purchases made at resulted through no fault of your own.

In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.


3. Credit Card Security

We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your credit card information as it is transmitted to us.

SSL is the gold standard in Internet encryption technology, which is a fancy way of saying that it's a highly sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our website's server.

To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal financial information, look at the lower status bar of your browser when accessing our secure ordering pages. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Location line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from "http" to "https."

Some browser versions and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers like the one we use to process orders at Whirling Girl. If for any reason you cannot access the secure server, please feel free to place your order with us by phone at 206-779-1028. We will be happy to assist you.
