Your information security

Your Information Security
We are committed to keeping personal information secure. We have appropriate technical, administrative and physical procedures in place to protect personal information from loss, misuse or alteration, and ensure it is only accessible by those who have a business need.

Payment online
What credit cards do we accept?
For online purchasing, we accept Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards and also payment via PayPal or by bank transfer.

Is your credit card number secure online?
We use the latest SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology, which ensures that any communications between your computer and ourselves is unreadable by anyone else. Your details are communicated in a secure encrypted format. We can check that the information has not been tampered with in any way.

Most browsers have an indicator to let you know if you have established a secure connection. If you are not sure, then consult the help section of your browser. If your browser does not support SSL technology, then we recommend that you update to the latest version. United Business Journal also uses 3D Secure. This is a new technical standard developed by Visa and MasterCard which aims to further secure ‘Card Not Present’ (CNP) transactions over the Internet. This is the payment industry’s internet authentication standard which has been developed by the major card plans. Visa calls their version of the plan ‘Verified by Visa.’ MasterCard calls their equivalent ‘MasterCard SecureCode’. These are both collectively referred to as 3D Secure, which is the on-line equivalent of ‘chip and pin’.
