Safe & Secure Shopping
We take the security of our customer's financial and personal information very seriously. This page documents what we do to protect your important data from being discovered by third parties and also the lengths we go to to make online purchasing secure.
Shopping online with us is as safe as shopping in a store or over the phone. Our site uses the highest encryption possible to make sure that your details are safe while being passed between you and us. Unlike many sites we encrypt all information you supply during registration and while ordering. Our encryption is Thawte certified which means it is virtually impossible for information you provide to be understood in transit (our site uses RC4-56, 128 bit with 56 secret encryption).
In addition to the high levels of security we use while you are using our site we take special steps to protect you and your credit card. If you pay using a credit or debit card the transaction is carried out on our behalf by one of the world's leading e-commerce financial transaction handlers. Your credit card details are never stored by us and our staff have no access to your sensitive payment details.
As additional security our online payment transactions use the CVV2 number (the last three digits on the signature strip of your credit or debit card) to guard against card fraud. We may, on occasion, phone or email the cardholder to confirm the transaction prior to dispatch.
