Security & Privacy
Everyone is concerned about security when it comes to ordering over the internet. Please be reassured that we use the very latest and most stringent security on our order and payment systems. When you place an order you will see either a key or padlock appear on your browser. This confirms your order details are secure. Our payment processing is via WorldPay who are one of the longest established, largest and most respected online order processing companies. They are used by thousands of companies from multi-nationals to small net traders. Worldpay use a variety of the latest industry standard methods to ensure absolute security. For additional piece of mind we are also a WhichNet trader accredited store.
How it works
If you are interested in the details the systems used are the industry standard SSL, Thawte and WorldPay unique encryption systems. When the shopper fills in the payment form and clicks the submit button, their details are not sent straight away. What actually happens is that a secure link is set up between the shoppers browser and WorldPay and an encryption code is requested and received, which then wraps the order and transaction details before leaving the shoppers premises. WorldPay use Thawte 2048 bit encryption systems. At the browser 128 Bit SSL is used.
