Is it safe to enter my credit/debit card details online?
Reidys.com is spilt into two parts, the part where you search
for products you want to buy and then click BUY to purchase them is not secure.
This is for two reasons, a) there is no need for this part to be secure as no personal information is transmitied. b) It would make Reidys.com run slower.
When you get to the CHECKOUT you are taken to a SECURE SERVER. Reidys.com has a site security certificate that is issued by Thawte and can be verified publicly by anyone. The certificate means you can check with the issuer to see if we are who we say we are and confirms the site is secure.
The secure server allows us to take your credit/debit card and personal details safely and securely from your computer. The moment you enter information into your browser it is encrypted using 128-bit encryption and is only decrypted once it is inside our secure server where the information is safe. This system is possibly more secure than using a card in a shop in public were prying eyes can read your card number over your shoulder.
We know everyone hates unsolicited emails etc. so we make every effort to keep your details secure.
The only personal information we collect is the information that you give us, by ordering or by sending request forms, or by email.
We'll only ever ask for the information that we need, and we'll only use it for the purpose we state.
All the details you enter are held on our secure systems, and except for the conditions below we don't give them to anyone else.
- When placing your order via our online checkout, we will use a payment service to process your payment. These services adhere to extremely strict security and privacy standards, and normally don't even allow us access to your payment details. Depending on your choice of payment, we currently use Sagepay, Paypal or V12 Finance.
We will sometimes ask for feedback on your shopping experience via Trustpilot - a separate review site.
The (very) limited data we send through them is only used to ask for your review, nothing else, and isn't passed onto anyone else.
While we'd love to hear your thoughts, it's totally voluntary, so please feel free to ignore any request for feedback if you wish.
