Terms & Conditions

Montessori Shop provides their services to you subject to the following conditions. If you visit or shop at Montessori Shop, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully. 

Online Security

Montessori Shop is proud to be associated with DPS, New Zealand's largest and most preferred payment gateway provider.

Montessori Shop does not collect or store any credit card information. This information is all processed by DPS. When making a purchase you will be directed to a secure webpage hosted by DPS to enter your payment details. The DPS hosted payments page is secured using SSL. 

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a method of ensuring that information submitted through your Web site is secure and cannot be accessed by unauthorized users. When a site offers an SSL-secured form, the information submitted via that form (typically credit card information) is encrypted using a special certificate key and then decrypted with another key after it has been transmitted. When users access a site secured with SSL using their browser, a symbol displays in their browser windows indicating that the site is secure.
