Privacy & Security

  • Your privacy is important to us and we will not do anything to violate your trust. We treat customer information as strictly confidential.
  • We never reveal personal information such as your name, email address, postal address or telephone number to third parties.
  • The only other party that will be involved in shopping on this website, but only if you pay online for any goodies, is DPS. DPS is a secure payments gateway that is part of the ANZ Banking Group and a very commonly used method for secure internet payments both in NZ and around the world. When you go to pay for anything you will be taken to a page on DPS's secure server, that has been branded to look like part of our website, where your card details are handled inside a seriously secure environment. Click on the logo to go to their website if you like, it will open in a new window.




  • You can check if you are on a secure internet page by looking at the adress bar in your browser. It if starts with https://www...... the 'S' denotes that it is a secure page. A handy double check for you.
  • We do not store your card details in any form what so ever. In fact we here at MBC (Maritime Bondage Central) never see your card details nor does our website at all as all that is done inside the DPS secure website. All we see is a email from DPS saying 'Order no 123 has been paid'
  • As an extra level of security our credit card practices, for when you do get any card numbers outside of the website, we are periodically audited and found to be fully complant with PCI Security Standards. We are audited periodically and have always passed with excellance in all previous audits. PCI DSS is a comprehensive set of requirements created by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council for enhancing cardholder data security and to ensure the safe handling and storage of sensitive customer credit card information and/or data. Click on the logo to go to their website, be warned it is deep and will play with a normal persons head.
