By placing an order with us you consent to the collection and protection of your information under the terms of this policy. If you do not accept these terms, please do not buy goods from us.
We accept payments from the following credit/debit card and instant transfer account types.
In order to provide you with the highest level of payment security currently possible (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Level 1) we have teamed up with Stripe, whose industry proven global payment gateway securely processes millions of unique transactions each month. The benefit of using the Stripe secure payment gateway is that we do not save your credit or debit card details on our website or offline database, meaning that should anyone gain unauthorised access to our systems they will not be able to obtain your credit or debit card details. Stripe provides the very highest levels of security to ensure that sensitive information is never compromised, and their systems are fully compliant with the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
If there’s one thing that PayPal is all about, it’s protecting your financial details. When you open a PayPal account your credit/debit card and bank details are stored securely, meaning that you can then make purchases from participating websites without having to submit any sensitive financial information. PayPal provides the very highest levels of security to ensure that sensitive information is never compromised, and their systems are fully compliant with the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
When you complete our online checkout process, the following payment steps will apply…
(a) When you click the ‘Continue to Payment’ button on the final checkout page your internet browser will automatically redirect you to the PayPal secure payment gateway
(b) Upon reaching the PayPal secure payment gateway you will be given the option of either (i) paying by credit or debit card without signing in, or (ii) signing in to your PayPal account and then paying using your account balance or stored credit/debit card or bank details
(c) After you submit your details, PayPal will compile the transaction information (including foreign exchange details), undertake the security checks and verify the transaction
(d) Once the transaction is complete, your browser will automatically redirect you to a receipt page on our website. Finally, an e-mail will be sent to you by us confirming to you that we have received the order and are processing it.
Any comments or questions relating to payment security should be directed to us using the e-mail address above.
