When you order online from Abbey Saddlery, your personal details and your credit card details are encrypted before they are sent to our secure server facility. Once at the secure server they remain there, still in encrypted form, until we access your order and start packing your purchases. Your details are only available to authorised Abbey Saddlery staff and will not be passed on to any other organisations. Contrast a secure transaction like this one with the types of everyday transactions you are used to making:
- Ordering by phone and reading out your credit card number to a total stranger
- Handing your credit card to a shop assistant or waiter who takes it away from you to perform your transaction
- Posting or faxing an order form with your credit card number
These transactions are completely insecure - but that does not stop you making purchases this way. Experience tells you that, on the whole, people do not misuse your credit card details. But online ordering via a secure server is clearly a more secure method of passing on your credit card details. And therefore the risk of your card details falling into the wrong hands is even lower. Even more important, however, are the answers to questions such as these:
- Can you trust the company you are sending your card details to?
- Do they actually exist?
- Do they have premises?
- Do they have a proven track record?
- Can you easily contact them?
- Do they have the required stock?
These questions are important and should be answered before you give out any personal information. So let us put your mind at rest about our business at Abbey Saddlery.
