You should always be sure that the payment area of any web site uses SSL (Secure Socket Layers) technology.
Our payments are handled by WorldPay who operate industry standard 128-bit encryption in handling your credit card details. After checking the items in your basket and confirming your delivery details you will switch into this secure payment environment.
How can you tell?
Typically browsers will show a padlock symbol somewhere on the open window. Very often, for example in Microsoft Internet Explorer, this padlock symbol appears in the bottom left of the page. Different browsers may display this in different places, please check in the help menu of your browser if you are unsure.
When you hold your mouse pointer over the padlock symbol in your browser window a text box will display "SSL Secured". If you double-click on the padlock a Security Certificate will pop up. This will give you all the security information required, guarantee the identity of a remote computer and tell you the owners name.
In our case the security certificate will be issued to WorldPay.
