Maintaining the security of your personal information is extremely important to us. Our secure server software uses industry-standard SSL encryption technology. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypts, or encodes, your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address so this information would be rendered unreadable should someone try to intercept it.

Off-line information is also protected and is accessible only to those authorised personnel for whom it is necessary to access such information.
If you choose to pay with your credit card details online, you will notice that the URL prefix (located in your address bar) will change from the standard http:// to the secure https://. This means that you are in secure mode for your transaction.
Similarly, you will notice your browser’s security icon changes to either a locked padlock or solid gold key (depending on your browser make and version). This is your assurance that your browser and our server are communicating securely.
Payment for your purchase is via a secure online payment process.
