What you can do

Even though the overwhelming majority of online transactions are completed safely there are still some things you can do to ensure you are just a little safer, both on our site an other sites.

1. Ensure your PC is kept up to date with the latest anti virus software. Without these you are more open to threats.
2. Your PC should have a firewall, windows comes with a inbuilt firewall, ensure its turned on.
3. If anything raises your suspicion at any point then just contact us on 0844 567 70 70
4. We would recommend not using public computers to place orders as your details will remain in the browser history – do it from home.
5. Keep your passwords to yourself, if anyone knows your password it makes you account much more suceptible to malicious use
6. Lastly when you are viewing any pages where you enter information ensure the link in the navigation bar reads https:// the s is for secure and it means the page you are viewing is encrypted.Here is how you check whether you are on a secure page:
