How secure is this store?
Sweet Olive Press uses PayPal for payments, and PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). To further shield your credit card and bank numbers, PayPal does not directly connect their firewall-protected servers to the internet.

What about taxes and duties?
Orders from outside Colorado do not incur any sales tax.
Because Sweet Olive Press is based in Colorado, by law all Colorado orders incur a 6.63% sales tax. This is usually added automatically by PayPal.
