TERMS & CONDITIONS
As of April 30, 2012
We want to make your shopping experience "hassle free" and "safe". Our site is designed to make this process as straight forward as possible. However, you need to know a little more about the buying process, our terms and conditions of sale and your rights when buying from us. The following will hopefully answer any questions you may have as well as laying out our terms and conditions of sale. If you have any questions however, please feel free to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
By placing an order with us you are confirming your agreement to our terms and conditions as set out below.
As a PayPal merchant we offer you the most secure online payment method available today. PayPal began in 1999 as a tool for transferring money for payment in eBay auctions and is currently the most popular online payment system of its kind. To date, PayPal boasts more than 8 million members, which account for a considerable number of those who make purchases via the Internet.
Customers and merchants are protected exceptionally well by PayPal. First, the order form that pops up to take the customer's credit card uses PayPal's SSL (secure sockets layer) secure server. With PayPal the merchant doesn't need a secure server, only a standard website. PayPal provides the secure order form.
We are also more than happy to accept cheques drawn on a Canadian bank although in this case goods will not be dispatched until payment has cleared our account. If paying by cheque, full payment instructions will be sent to you by email on completion of the checkout process.
We accept orders from North America and overseas. However, for overseas buyers payment must be made via Paypal. You do not have to be a Paypal account holder to make debit or credit card payments.
Credit Card Security
Your entry of credit/debit card numbers is made on the Paypal website and not on Arabella Pines. We do not store your credit/debit card information on our site at any time.
All information entered in on the Paypal website is encrypted in transit using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol and the highest commercially available encryption key length of 128-bits. For further information please visit their website at www.paypal.com

Allergies - Nickel and Impure Metal in Silver
Contrary to popular belief, 925 silver does not necessarily mean that it is free from impure metals. It simply means that the purity of the silver content is 92.5% - it definitely does not mean it is "nickel free".
If a person is allergic to a piece of jewelry it is usually the nickel or other metals that they are allergic to.
We do not suggest that any piece of silver or silver jewelry offered on this site is nickel free and do not offer any guarantees with regard to allergies.
If you have a nickel and/or any other impure metal allergy then please do not purchase any silver based product from this site. There are specialist suppliers who can produce items guaranteed to be free from nickel.
