The security of your personal and financial details is essential to us.
This website uses 256-bit encryption that utilises SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). This offers the highest level of security available on the Internet, and works by automatically scrambling the information you send over the web so it is meaningless. Once it arrives, we have the key to de-scramble the words.
When you enter any personal information or payment details, you will be in a secure area of the site. You can check this by looking for a padlock in the bottom corner of your web browser and that the web address starts with "https:// " - the letter 's' stands for secure. When you send your information over the web, it will be encrypted to protect anyone from reading it.
It should be noted, however, that any information sent from the web site by email will not be encrypted.
In some instances the web page may not display https:// or a padlock - this is often the case with websites that use framesets. You can still confirm the security settings on these pages by right-clicking on the page and selecting 'properties'. If the page is secure the address line will begin 'https://'.
If you are using Chrome then you will need to press F12, click on the security tab and the click on view certificate.
All the information that we save for you is protected by firewalls and a wide range of IT security measures.
