All credit and debit card transactions are carried out on a secure payment service provider website, not on our website. We are provided with partial details of your card (type of card and the last 4 numbers) but we never get to see your full card details if you make payments online. If you request an order by telephone and provide card details that way, we will enter them immediately online as if you were performing this at home. We will not write down or store your written card details. However the card processing service provider does store details of your card (as is always the case whenever you make any sort of purchase anywhere with your card). We are able to put through further payments on your card by requesting this from the provider. We will only do this upon your clear instructions, such as to place further orders. We keep full records of payments taken and these can be viewed online in your account, or supplied separately on request. If you choose to pay by cheque, your order will be subject to a 7 day clearance delay.
