SecurityWe take security very seriously. Where appropriate the website is configured to transfer data using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), one of the strongest security systems to protect your communications with us, you are automatically protected using SSL with 128 bit encryption. SSL works in the following ways:
- It prevents impersonation – you can tell that you are using a genuine SSL website by the padlock symbol on the bottom of the screen.
- It encrypts data – as soon as your computer has recognized our computer they encrypt all information that is passed between them. Data encryption means that no-one else can read or change your information as it travels over the Internet.
- It prevents scrambling – SSL uses a Message Authentication Code (MAC) to prevent anyone tampering with our website. Your computer will always check this code before it takes a message from us. This means that if anyone tries to interfere with a message, your computer would not recognize the code and would alert you.
