Security

Internet Security Technology

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Web Server Certificates, such as the one used on this website, encrypt all data sent to and from the web site. This information is scrambled and hence unintelligible if intercepted.

This SSL technology is the standard for secure data transmission over the Internet and when you reach the final payment stage, your connection will change to the secure https channel.

How to check your Browser's Security

If you elect to submit your credit card details online, you will notice that the URL prefix (located in your address bar) will change from the standard http:// to the secure https://. This means that you are in secure mode.

Similarly, you will notice your browser's security icon (located at the bottom right hand corner of your browser window) change to either a locked padlock or solid gold key (depending on your browser make and version). You may even - depending on your chosen preferences - receive a prompt informing you that you are visiting a secure page.
