Shopping online with us using your debit or credit card is safe and secure. In fact, contrary to popular belief, it is more secure than using your card in a shop or restaurant.
We do not receive/handle any card details. All the payments are processed by PayPal. The card number is never available to any human being at any stage in the process.
"The PayPal site is highly secure. We use industry-leading technology (such as SSL) to keep your information safe.
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, our server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the Internet, so your private information is available only to authorised computers."
We never see your credit card details and they are not stored by us. This does mean that next time you shop with us, you will have to input your card number again, which we know might be a little inconvenient. But we hope you will agree that it is a small price to pay for complete security and total peace of mind.
Never let your cards out of your sight, and always check your statements carefully for any unusual transaction. Most ‘internet fraud’ that you hear about does not involve card numbers being intercepted or stolen over the internet. What commonly happens is that cards are cloned or copied by criminals, which can be done by simply swiping the magnetic strip through a card-reading device.
