Credit Card Security

Our website uses Paypal to process payments (which is owned by eBay) and is a worldwide e-commerce businesses allowing payments and money transfers to be made through the Internet enabling you to shop without sharing financial information with the company you are buying from. Once you have been through our checkout process and provided your name and address and contact details so that we can process your order, you will arrive at the Paypal page and thereafter the information you enter is known only to the Paypal encripted system.

Secure Checkout Connection

Our web server uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL creates a secure 'layer' between your browser program and your Internet connection. When you reach the payment page on our site you can see a small padlock at the bottom of your browser's window or to the right of the address bar (where your current web address is displayed). By clicking on this padlock you can see our digital certificate information guaranteeing the identity of the page. SSL also encrypts data and verifies that it was not altered between your computer and our server. There has never been a breach of security reported using SSL (secure socket layer) technology. At no point are any credit card transactions sent over an unsecured connection.
