Web site security:
Our web site and pages are hosted on a private server with latest service packs, updates and security patches installed. In addition, our web site pages are protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and all pages which collect sensitive data are protected. Any communication containing sensitive information between your browser and our server is encrypted using 128/256 bit encryption. To verify that you are shopping in a secure environment, look for the padlock icon in your internet browser. You should also check that the web site URL starts with “https” instead of “http”
In addition to these security measures, our web site is frequently scanned and checked by “Security Metrics” who verifies our web site as PCI compliance. These regular scans also help us identify any new security vulnerabilities and apply patches if and when required.
Our PCI Compliance certification is available on request. Should you wish to see a copy, please contact us and we will be happy to provide you with this certificate and more information.
We use a third party payment gateway and an online merchant account to process payments. Our Payment Gateway provider is “Cardstream” and our Merchant account provider is “Barclaycard”.
All online payment transactions involving card payments are protected for your security using our 128/256 bit SSL encryption. This means that the information you enter into your browser is scrambled before being sent over the Internet. Even if someone intercept with this transaction they will not be able to view your card data as this is encryption during your transaction.
Once your payment is successful, our payment gateway securely stores card data together with a reference number. It is those reference numbers we use to process refunds up to 30 days from your original transaction date and these reference numbers does not contain your card number or other card data.
