We take the security of your purchase very seriously. We take every available precaution to ensure that you can be completely confident that your order is secure. We use a 100% fully protected checkout system using state of the art 256 bit encryption to ensure that your details will never be seen by anyone, not even us. All payments are handled, securely, by our payment processing system and the entire process is protected by our security certificate. This certificate, provided by Verisign (who are a leading Global certificate authority of SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificates, is proof of the security measures in place.

Safety and Security Tips:
If using a public computer or terminal always log out and close the browser when you finish an online session. Keep your passwords private. Remember that anyone who knows your password may purchase on your card. Avoid using the same password for multiple online accounts or pin numbers. When creating a password use at least 8 characters – a combination of letters and numbers is best. Do not use dictionary words, names, email addresses or other personal information that can be easily obtained. It is also recommended that you frequently change your password.
