Security Questions

Q: Are my personal and card details processed securely?

A: When you make a purchase with us, both your personal and card details are processed using the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. This encrypts your data and ensures that nobody can read the information being sent between your computer and our website. When you enter the SSL enabled area of the website you will see a padlock at the bottom of your web browser and this means that the information you enter is protected.

Q: What is Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode?

A: Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode are services for Visa and MasterCard cardholders which provide a more secure shopping experience. The system requires the cardholder to provide a personal password when paying with their card online in much the same way as they would provide a PIN when making purchases on the High Street.
