Security measures

We take the privacy of individuals' data very seriously, and we implement the following security measures to safeguard your data:

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer): This is the global standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This ensures that all data passed between the website and users remains private and secure. You can verify this by clicking on the green padlock icon in your browser window (it's usually at the top, next to the address bar).

Password protection: All personal data on the website is password protected. Passwords are stored in an encrypted form and transmitted only using SSL. Measures are in place to detect and block repeated incorrect password guesses, which prevents users' accounts being cracked by 'brute force' attacks.

We never see or store your payment details.
