Credit Card Security
At the payment stage of the ordering process, you will be passed on to a Secure Order Processing page hosted by our payment partner Stripe. Your details will be encrypted by 128-bit industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to provide encryption of personal information such as your name, address and credit card details. This encrypts information while it is being transmitted across the Internet so that unauthorised people cannot read it. In addition, for extra security, your payment details go direct to the bank and we never even see them.
We take the security of your data very seriously. We collect only the basic personal details required to process your order. We do not release, sell or share this information with any other companies, organisations or individuals.
