The Buena is dedicated to keeping your details private. Any information, we collect in relation to you, is kept strictly secured. We do not pass on/sell/swap any of your personal details with anyone.

The Buena uses cookies to allow you to login to your account, maintain a shopping cart and to purchase items in your shopping cart.

Cookies sent to your computer from The Buena only last while you’re browsing our website. No personal information is stored in the cookie, nor do we use cookies to personalise your shopping experience.

IP Address

Whenever you use our web site, or any other web site, the computer on which the web pages are stored (the Web server) needs to know the network address of your computer so that it can send the requested web pages to your Internet browser.

The unique network address of your computer is called its “IP address,” and is sent automatically each time you access any Internet site. From a computer’s IP address, it is possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer, but otherwise it is anonymous.

For security purposes, we keep a record of your IP addresses when you log on to our website and as part of the checkout process. An example of this would be when proceeding to a checkout to finalise an order you may wish to make. After completing the form provided, your IP address will be stored along with a transaction number that allows us to track your order.

Security Policy

The Buena uses Stripe Payment Gateway for its online credit card transactions.

Stripe processes online credit card transactions for thousands of Australian merchants, providing a safe and secure means of collecting payments via the Internet. Stripe is a certified PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.

All online credit card transactions performed on this site using the Stripe gateway are secured payments. Payments are fully automated with an immediate response. Your complete credit card number cannot be viewed by any outside party.

All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons can obtain plain text card numbers but can request that cards are sent to a service provider on a static allowlist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in a separate hosting environment, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services including our API and website.

In addition, this site also uses a SSL Certificate not only to encrypt transactions but to protect the back-end of the website from potential intruders. Malware scans are automatically performed on a daily basis.
