However, we do use various details to verify information given to us by our customers. At times, we use names on member accounts to compare with information on credit cards. We use member phone numbers and email addresses provided to us to communicate with customers about payments and out of stock items. We may also use member addresses to check against credit card billing addresses.
We will pass on any information relating to suspected fraudulent activity to relevant authorities.
