Сard payments are processed via PayPoint and are protected with industry certified (PCI DSS Level 1) secure and encrypted payment gateway. Detailed information is available on PayPoint website.
We use 3-D Secure which is a cardholder authentification technology created by Visa and MasterCard to provide further security for transactions over the Internet. 3-D Secure programmes such as MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa protect your online transactions by adding an additional layer of assurance to processed transactions. If you are paying using a credit/debit card enrolled in 3D secure, the Mastercard or VISA security screen will appear and you will be asked to enter your passphrase which is known only to you. You will then be returned to our site after authentication. If you are not enrolled in a 3-D programme your payment will be processed accordingly.
When you use PayPal, your financial information is protected by SSL with an encryption key length of 168 bits which is the highest level commercially available. PayPal do not directly connect their firewall-protected servers to the internet which provides additional protection for your debit and credit card numbers as well as your bank account details.
