Security Policy

Looking After Your Details

We take security very seriously, which is why we have chosen to use online credit card processing facilities provided by WorldPay.

WorldPay are Europe's leading payment service provider. They are responsible for the online card processing of companies such as John Lewis, Disney, Sage and Vodafone. WorldPay have impeccable fraud prevention capabilities and as such are master merchants for Visa and MasterCard.

It is now known that Internet transactions through systems such as WorldPay's are inherently more secure than other methods of making purchases in 'cardholder not present' situations such as telesales, or when giving a card to a waiter in a restaurant.

Your online purchase from us will take place in real time, and we will never see your credit card details. The entire financial transaction takes place using WorldPay's state-of-the-art security features and it is absolutely impossible for us to access your financial information. None of your card details pass through, or are stored on, our servers. You can have confidence that our online purchasing facilities are secure and safe to use.

Our WorldPay facilities are fully secure and use a range of industry standard and WorldPay unique security and fraud prevention systems. The WorldPay network uses 2048-bit encryption, with full 128-bit encryption between the browser and the WorldPay network. WorldPay systems are regularly inspected by the major banks to ensure that system integrity and security are maintained to the highest standards.

The WorldPay processing centre is securely linked to many processing banks worldwide, who handle the credit card authorisations online and process the transactions in real time. Thawte, a public Certificate Authority, certifies the WorldPay servers. Thawte will only issue Digital Certificates to those servers that meet stringent security requirements. The WorldPay servers meet and exceed these requirements.
