For enhanced security BBHonline does not retain any financial information on its servers. All such information entered by you is directly received by our Banks’ servers and is then transmitted to your banks’ servers.

However, please keep in mind that customer protection is a two-way street. When buying online, caution must always be practiced. Following are some guidelines that should be followed to ensure a safe and secure online shopping experience.


Safety and Security Recommendations

1.    Protect your passwords. Please do not share your passwords with anybody.

a)    Please refrain from using a public computer. But in case you are using a public computer or terminal, always log out when the online session ends.

b)    Keep your passwords private, to protect access to your account.

c)     Never use the same password for multiple online accounts.

2.   Be wary of unsolicited e-mail and telephone contacts. Please do not access email from unknown email addresses nor open any attachments sent with them.

a)    BBHonline will never e-mail or call a customer asking them to disclose or verify their BBHonline password, credit card, or bank account number. Such information should only be submitted on the web page forms while completing an order on BBHonline or while updating your account information and never shared on phone or e-mail to us. If you receive a suspicious e-mail with a link to update your account information, do not click on the link--instead, go directly to and then access your account.

b)  Please do not entertain/access emails from an unknown entity, representing BBHonline and share your personal confidential information. BBHonline will never send such emails.

c)    Customers should always carefully review order and shipment confirmation e-mails to ensure that they have been sent by BBHonline. For this purpose, please cross-reference confirmation e-mails with the transaction history in your account. If you receive a shipment confirmation e-mail for a transaction you have not done, report the incident to BBHonline.

d)    Never disclose any confidential information such as passwords in any communication with us or with any of our employees. BBHonline will never ask for such information over e-mails or phone.

e)    If you receive an e-mail, asking for personal details, such as password, never respond to it. It could be a phishing email.

f)    A phishing email will normally have a tone of urgency – like "Your account will be temporarily suspended" and therefore please "Login to keep your account active." Please be rest assured BBHonline will NEVER send such emails to its customers.  

g)    If you are doubtful about the credibility of the email, please DO NOT click on any link provided in the email. This may result in malicious codes being installed on your laptop/PC. You must report the incident to BBHonline.

h)    If you receive a suspected spoofed BBHonline e-mail, or discover a fake BBHonline website, please report the same to BBHonline. 

3.    Ensure your Personal Computer is protected:

a)    Fraudsters send genuine-looking emails that contain viruses and Trojans (A Trojan refers to a program that appears to be safe but hidden inside, is usually something harmful, probably a virus). These viruses / Trojans, install a malicious code on your computer without your knowledge. They extract your confidential information that fraudsters use to access your online profile/account etc.

b)   Here are a few important action points that you should bear in mind:

i)    Keep your computer updated with the latest anti-virus / anti-spyware software.

ii)   Install a personal firewall on your computer to protect your account.

iii)   Keep your computer updated with the latest security patches and, most importantly,

iv)  Do not click on links or open attachments from unknown or unsolicited (spam) emails.
