Third Party Websites
Our website contains hyperlinks to websites owned and operated by third parties. These third party websites have their own privacy policies, including cookies, and we urge you to review them. They will govern the use of personal information you submit or which is collected by cookies whilst visiting these websites. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third party websites and your use of such websites is at your own risk.
We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to allow you to enter your order and credit card details securely. When you place your order, a padlock will appear on the bottom of the screen and the web address will show https:// at the beginning.
Encryption occurs on your PC and is only decrypted once your order has reached our server. At no stage is the transaction decrypted whilst it travels over the internet.
Our personel will never passes your details on to anyone else. Cookies are only used on this shopping site to keep track of the contents of your shopping basket once you have selected an item.
Avoiding fraud: We will never ask you to send your card details by email or by post and we will not ask you to speak your card details over the telephone. If we have a query about payment for your order we will send an email asking that you call us or will call you direct.
Credit card security
We utilize tokenization technology to eliminate both the need for us to transmit sensitive card details over the Internet and the need for our customers to repeatedly enter their debit and credit card details.
When you place an order online with us, your card details are securely held with our payment provider Secure Trading who are fully PCI compliant. Our staff never have access to or sight of your card information, only to a token that references it; this is used in place of the card number for all refunds or repeat transactions.
If you call us to place your order over the telephone we will ask you to use the keypad of your telephone to enter your card details; you do not need to speak your card details and reveal them to us. When you use your phone to enter your card information we only hear a flat tone, we do not hear the tones made by the keypad of you phone. By not asking you to speak your card details, your information stays even more secure from potential eavesdropping.
