This page tells you about our Internet security and how you can check that our order pages are secure.

In compliance with our bank’s Merchant agreement, ALL credit card transactions made via this site, are inspected and authorised before shipping of goods.

Before PAYMENT information entered on our order page is transmitted across the internet, it is first encrypted by an extremely rigorous algorithm called RC4 128 bit (SSL v3.0), which is proven as secure for online shopping and e-commerce.

Despite media paranoia about Internet security,this encryption method is actually more secure than providing your credit card number over the phone, something many of us do without hesitation.

There are several indicators of a secure web page.

The first is the http s:// prefix on the URL. The stands for secure.  If this page is located within a frames environment you may wish to open the page in its own browser window to confirm for yourself that it is a secure page.
