When you "check out", your payment details are transferred via a secure server, utilising 128-bit, industry standard, encryption technologies to ensure that your credit card information is protected during a transaction. You should look for the locked padlock or unbroken key icon at the bottom right of your browser screen, and also note that the page address during payment begins https, instead of the normal http. These indicate that you are connected to a secure site.
To help prevent fraud, we may contact the cardholder to validate any order value greater than a limit which we change from time-to-time.
The Consumer Credit Act 1974 and the European E-commerce Directive 2002 ensure that all consumers are protected from fraud whenever they use their credit cards. That includes when they use their credit cards online. So, essentially, using your credit card online is no different from using it in the 'real world'.
Remember: If unauthorised use of your credit or debit card does occur, you must notify your card provider, in accordance with the agreement you have with the company.
