About Us and Our Terms and Conditions
Silver b3 is a small independent and secure online retail business based in the South West of England / UK.
ALL OUR PRODUCTS ARE STOCKED AND SENT FROM WITHIN THE UK.
Most all of our gifts and accessories are not only distinct in terms of their quality, substance, & design elegance, but are very competitively priced. They are likely to be of considerably better value than those that occasionally become available through other retail mediums, such as Major High Street chains, & Mail Order Catalogues, and other 'On-Line' shops and Catalogues etc.
So if your looking for that Special or Unique gift, one not to be found in any of the regular high street shops, particularly for those irritating friends and family members who already have everything, then look no further. Be it for a Birthday present, Wedding present, Anniversary present, or just a unique gift for that special person, friend or loved one, we hope that you will find it here.
We regularly update and expand upon the product range, and category of items available. So if you see nothing on this occasion that either appeals to you, or meets your requirements, please try again at some later date.
We are completely committed to your total satisfaction. if you have any suggestions or comments on either the product or the service we would be happy to receive them at:

All personal details and credit card numbers are further encrypted when you enter the Secure PayPal Site, when the order is placed, using 128 bit encryption. They are only decrypted after they are cleared from the secure site in order to process the payment. They are not held in clear text on any web site.
PCI DSS Compliance.
PayPal are fully PCI DSS Compliant. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of 12 requirements designed to secure and protect customer payment data. PCI DSS is a worldwide information security standard defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. The standard was created to help payment card industry organisations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud through increased controls around data and its exposure to compromise. The standard applies to all organisations that hold, process, or exchange cardholder information from any card branded with the logo of one of the card brands.
3D Secure. (Additional Online / Card Payment Security)
3D Secure is a culmination of 'Verified by Visa' and 'MasterCard Secure Code'. It is the current additional fraud prevention initiative launched by the various card schemes as a more secure method for authenticating a customer / shopper at the time of the transaction.
It is an extra security step you must take to process your order, but is intended to provide greater customer security. If you elect to pay for your order by Credit / Debit card and have already registered your Card for 3D Secure, you may be asked to enter your '3D Secure' password. Visa or MasterCard will then verify your Password and if the details you have provided are correct the transaction will continue as normal and be sent to the bank for authorisation.
If you have not registered your card before, you will have the option to do so, there and then.
We are anxious that you should be completely satisfied with your purchase. If for any reason you are not, or your order does not meet your requirements, then we offer a 14 day no quibble product returns policy.
