When shopping with us, your payments are completely safe. Our secure server encrypts all of your personal data, such as your name, address and credit card information. We will always use SagePay, the industry leader in secure internet transactions.
All of your transaction information is passed between our website and the SagePay Payment System, which is encrypted using 128-bit SSL technology. Cardholder information is ever stored or passed unencrypted, and never will be. All messages from SagePay are signed under MD5 hashing to prevent tampering.

No individuals within SagePay or our company are able to decrypt cardholder data or transaction information. Only SagePay’s most senior staff are allowed access to the systems in extenuating circumstances such as a fraud case by the Police.
