Extended SSL Certificate

All sensitive information is handled by pages on our site prefixed “https:” which means this information is encrypted via SSL, protecting it from interception by unintended recipients. This information is validated by COMODO, as you can check by clicking the logo below.

We used an advanced level of SSL security which turn your browsers URL bar green during the checkout so you know you are protected. Mozilla and Google Chrome browsers may see the URL bar display differently from green which is still the advanced level of security.


Our site is rigorously tested regularly by leading security company Security Mertrics to ensure that any details you enter are safe from hackers. They also confirm that we are PCI compliant. PCI compliance is now the Banks key weapon in ensuring security of customers data and payment details. Amazingly many eRetailers are still not PCI compliant. Before buying anywhere you must insist on any website you shop from being compliant.
