Security

We value your trust in providing us your  personal information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it.

It should be noted that for security purposes, no records of credit card information are kept on the cloud and the storage on the App device is not through JourneyHero but is through Apple Pay, PayPal or Visa Checkout. We never keep credit card information because we use only secured tokenised services without the credit card.

In addition, our App is protected by firewalls to ensure that only you can access your Personal information. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee your  personal information’s absolute security.
