Remarketing and how this applies to you
We are using remarketing/retargeting on our website to display advertisements for specific products to viewers who have visited specific pages on our website once they have left our site. These advertisements will be visible on other/third-party websites.
Third-party vendors, including Google and Facebook will show our ads on sites across the Internet.

The Bell Art Australia online store is a secure site. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology for secure data transmission over the internet. We encrypt all of your personal information, including credit card number, name and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the internet.
All credit card payments are handled directly by PayPal. Bell Art Australia will never see or store your credit card details on our site. Our secure server software uses VeriSign’s SSL encryption method to do this. It is the industry standard and amongst the best software available for secure online commerce transactions.
All pages on our website are hosted on 128-bit shared SSL security and whilst we make all reasonable endeavours to ensure the integrity and security of the server, we do not guarantee that the server will be free from unauthorised use or hacking.
