We are well aware that some people may be concerned about giving their credit card details via the internet, so that's why we trade using only the highest levels of credit card security over a secure network. All details are confidential while input on the internet and are then sent to us using most secure data encryption software (PGP). To ensure a high level of security, customers' credit card details are protected using an encryption algorithm. In plain English, this means that the credit card details are scrambled. Once scrambled credit card details are protected form unscrupulous parties. Once notified that an order has been taken, the encrypted order details are downloaded, unscrambled and processed via a PDQ machine. This means that all data input on our site is coded and can only be decoded by ourselves. Our host provides 128-bit encryption security. The industry standard 40-bit encryption, is the recommended minimum for other hosts.
You can tell that the pages you connect to the secure server because the address of the page in the address bar will change from being http:// to https:// or something similar such as https://ssl. You will also see a padlock symbol or a key appear in the bottom bar of your browser depending on which web browser you use.
As an extra security measure, your credit card details will not be retained on our servers for longer than is necessary for us to receive your order. This is why you must re-enter your card details each time you purchase anything from the site. If your still not sure about ordering online use one of the further options detailed in our ordering section.
