When you start the payment process you are said to be in a “secure session”. You know you are in a secure session if the URL address begins with https:// or a padlock symbol appears in the lower right hand corner of your browser.


'CVV' stands for 'card verification value'. It is a three- or four-digit number located at the end of the series of numbers on the back of your card, or in case of American Express cards on the front at the top right.
Please enter the number in order to help us be sure that your credit card is not being used fraudulently.


SSL technology is used within your payment session to encrypt information before it leaves your computer. This ensures that no one else can read it. Encryption converts your data into an encoded form before it's sent over the Internet. This stops any unauthorised users from reading the information.
