Security Statement

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 processing for 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.

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. The WorldPay servers are certified by Thawte, a public Certificate Authority. Thawte will only issue Digital Certificates to those servers which meet stringent security requirements. The WorldPay servers meet and exceed these requirements.

It is now known that Internet transactions through systems such as WorldPays 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. You can have confidence that our online purchasing facilities are secure and safe to use.
