TMC works hard to remain a reputable and trusted online retailer – the VeriSign SSL certificate you see at checkout and throughout our website (logo/padlock symbol) is proof of our continued commitment to protecting your privacy and keeping your data secure.
We use WorldPay & PayPal as our payment gateway, providing you security around the clock. our partners monitor every transaction 24/7 to help prevent against fraud, email phishing and identity theft. Every transaction is heavily guarded behind their next-level encryption. If something seems suspicious, their dedicated team of security specialists is immediately on it to help protect you from fraudulent transactions.
Your information is secured, when you pay with our gateways, your financial information is never shared with the seller, and you can pay using only your email address and password. If you forget your login, you can recover it by yourself or contact them if you need help.
