Website Contact Information
Come rain or shine, there will always be a risk that your personal information will be exploited by an unscrupulous business. However, there are some red flags to keep an eye on.

If you scroll to the bottom of our website, you can find a ‘Contact us’ section on the right, including our phone number, branded e-mail address, Skype contact, as well as the ‘Meet the team’ section where you can find out more about our colleagues and see what they look like.

If you take a look at our website domain: https://www.optics-trade.eu/, you can see that it begins with an ‘HTTPS’ and not ‘HTTP’. The ‘s’ in the abbreviation stands for ‘secure’, which means that our website has an SSL certificate that verifies that the traffic between you and the website is encrypted – it is safer.
It is vital for a company to include payment methods that allow customers to get their money back if things go sour and do not require the release of unnecessary personal information. Our many payment methods provide you with the option of choosing the one that feels the safest and the one you are most familiar with, including:
Cash on Delivery
Money Transfer (via Proforma invoice)
Payment by instalments (American Express or Dinners)
Credit Cards over PayPal
One of the ways of verifying if a company is legitimate is also by checking when the website domain was registered. Yes, a company can be fairly new, but if it appears to be sketchy and it was registered 3 months ago, take it with a grain of salt. If you go on: whois.com/whois and enter our website domain, you can see ours was registered in 2010.
