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.
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.
All personal and credit card information is encoded using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology before being sent over the Internet. To protect your data further, your credit card information is always stored in encrypted form in a database that is away from our Web site database, so it isn't connected to the Internet. Credit card transactions are issued a digital certificate, ensuring that your data can only be read by our transaction system as long as your browser shows its secure mode symbol (such as a key or closed lock).
