Below are some recommendations to help ensure that your online shopping experience is safe.
- If you are using a public computer, always log off when you are finished.
- Do not share your passwords. Remember, anyone who knows your password can access your account.
- When creating a password, use at least eight characters - preferably a combination of letters and numbers. Do not use words from a dictionary, your name, email address or other personal information that can be easily obtained. We also recommend that you change your password often.
- Use a different password for each of your online accounts.
- Beware of unsolicited emails and phone calls.
In addition, Wide the brand will never contact you to ask for your credit card or bank account information. This type of information is only sent to Wide the brand when you make a transaction, contact Wide the brand directly, or change your account online.

If you are contacted by a stranger who sends you an unsolicited email or asks you to confirm or provide your password or personal or banking information, ignore the request and contact us immediately.
For security reasons and to prevent fraud, credit card orders placed through this website will only be accepted by Wide the Brand if the name and billing address match the name on the purchaser's credit card and the address on the purchaser's credit card file. If the information does not match, your order will be refused, even if the transaction has been pre-authorized by your bank. In this case, the reserved order amount will not be available for pickup until the credit is posted to your account, which may take three to five business days.
