Since credit and debit card facilities were first offered at Countrybookshop we have never had any fraudulent use reported as a result of purchases made with us.
Our system for secure shopping is based on the HTTP Secure Socket Layer protocol (HTTP/SSL), which is the industry standard for secure encrypted communication over the World Wide Web. HTTP/SSL is supported by nearly all web browsers, including Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer, and can be linked to with a URL starting with https:// (as opposed to the standard http://). It encrypts all of your personal information including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.
Although many people are concerned about security over the World Wide Web, it is now generally accepted that when using HTTP/SSL there is an extremely low probability of sensitive information being intercepted. According to CNN, "The prevalent opinion.., is that on-line credit card use is actually no riskier for consumers than traditional 'low-tech' transactions."
