This information is not held by Ways Out Hong Kong at any time. Customers’ payment details are securely transmitted for real-time transaction authorisation using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
Internet protocol addresses
Our website collect IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyse trends, track users’ movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
All information provided to Ways Out Hong Kong is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption.

We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Ways Out Hong Kong. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
