Billings & Edmonds would like you to be confident about ordering online and we have put in place various security procedures. We use secure socket layer (SSL) technology to ensure that your details are safe and information you provide is fully encrypted so that it cannot be read by third parties. Our website is hosted in a secure data centre. Your browser will confirm that you are shopping in a secure environment by showing a locked padlock icon or an image of a key in the bar at the base of your screen and “https://” (HyperText Transfer Protocol *Secure*) is displayed before the URL in the address bar of your browser.
Whilst we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur, we use our best efforts to prevent this and our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary.
If a security breach causes an unauthorised access into our system that materially affects you or your contacts in our software, then Billings & Edmonds will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.
We take the privacy and security of your payment and personal details very seriously.
