The Site does not store any banking or billing information of subscribers as our system does not have access to such information.

After a successful payment the payment-processing company securely sends transaction information to us and the subscriber is automatically redirected back to the Biomedis Site. This prevents any unauthorised use of subscriber's personal and financial information. Once the payment is processed, the subscriber will see information on paid amount in the Personal Web Room.
