WE TAKE ONLINE SECURITY VERY SERIOUSLY!
The actual encryption strength on a secure connection using a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by your internet browser and the server that the Web site resides on. For example, the combination of a Firefox browser and an Apache Web server normally enables up to 256-bit AES encryption with our SSL certificates. This means that depending on the Web browser and Web server that combine to establish the secure connection through one of our SSL certificates, the encryption strength of the secure connection may be 40, 56, 128, or 256 bit. We use the highest 256-bit encryption on our website.
Additionally, we Do Not save your credit card details, once your order has been submitted, the information you supply is encrypted and sent to our payment provider RBS. They then deduct the amount from your account (as they would instore) and send confirmation of payment back to the website.

Definition of terminology.
An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a Web site and encrypts information sent to the server using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.
A certificate serves as an electronic "passport" that establishes an online entity’s credentials when doing business on the Web. When an Internet user attempts to send confidential information to a Web server, the user’s browser accesses the server’s digital certificate and establishes a secure connection.
An SSL certificate contains the following information:
- The certificate holder’s name
- The certificate’s serial number and expiration date
- A copy of the certificate holder’s public key
- The digital signature of the certificate-issuing authorit
