NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES.
THE SAFETY OF YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS.
We know that when you purchase items or services online you want your personal details and your credit or debit card information to be private and secure. We are committed to providing this security for you.
Our secure-server software encrypts all the details in your online transaction. The encryption process takes the characters you enter and converts them into a coded form, which is then securely transmitted.
What this means for you:
- Your details are secure
- Your details are safely sent to us
- Your details will be held securely by us
If you have problems using our secure system, it may be that your browser does not support our encryption system. In this case, contact your browser provider (eg Netscape or Internet Explorer) for further advice.
