We take a very active approach to combating fraud and theft, both with orders placed for our products and keeping your information safe and secure. It is a violation of State and Federal law to place orders under a false name or with an invalid or stolen credit card. We will take all steps possible to prosecute all people placing fraudulent orders to the fullest extent of the law possible. If we deem any order has a potential for fraud, we may require additional information to confirm the validity of your order.

Your personal information and payment information is always secure. We use the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to guarantee the security of your transactions and your information. merit-trade.com uses SSL to make sure that your data is always encrypted, secure, and protected. We do not keep your credit card number after your purchase. We know it’s quicker to shop when all your details are in the system, but it’s also less safe.

Our Privacy Policy may change in the future. We invite you to check back periodically to see if we have made any changes. By using this site, you agree to the terms of our policy.
