Online payments can be made online by using either our secure payment pages powered by SagePay or PayPal. Both services are highly secure and easy to use. For more information please read the following:
SagePay provide secure online credit card and debit card payment solutions for thousands of online and mail order businesses across the UK and therefore their systems are all highly secure and reliable.
When you make a payment you will be automatically transfered to the SagePay secure server payment pages, and when your transaction is complete you will be automatically transferred back to our website. We do not hold any customer’s credit card details.
Some technical info from SagePay:
All transaction information passed between merchant sites and the SagePay VSP Systems is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to your servers from SagePay are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing you pass to the SagePay servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
Encryption and Data Storage
Once on our systems, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government. The encryption keys are held on state-of-the-art, tamper proof systems in the same family as those used to secure VeriSign’s Global Root certificate, making them all but impossible to extract. The data we hold is extremely secure and we are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so.
Links to banks
SagePay has multiple private links into the banking network that are completely separate from the Internet and which do not cross any publicly accessible networks. Any cardholder information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is secure and cannot be tampered with.
