When the order is validated:
The payment request is routed in real-time to the secure remote payment manager. This asks for an authorisation request from the bank card network. The remote payment manager issues an electronic certificate which is proof of the amount and the date of the transaction in compliance with articles 1316 in the French civil code.

It must never be divulged to a third party.
If the RUBBERSOLE.CO.UK customer has lost or has forgotten his/her password, he/she should contact RUBBERSOLE.CO.UK customer service either by email or by telephone, and a new password will be issued within 48 hours to replace the previous one.
