How do you keep my personal information and payment details secure?
All information about our customers and site visitors is kept on a secure server and we fully comply with all applicable UK data protection and consumer legislation. Any personal information you give us (or is available on public registers) and any information we use to identify you, is held in accordance with our registration with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
SSL and encryption technology
We have implemented internet security technology to ensure that it is safe for you to shop with us. We use internet standard encryption technology to scramble your personal data when you give it to us. This process is known as SSL (secure sockets layer) and we are constantly updating our technology to provide you with the maximum level of security.
To check you are in a secure area of our website, you can look at the bottom right of your browser window and you will see a closed padlock or an unbroken key. This indicates that SSL is enabled and your transaction is secure.
Additionally, we do not hold any of your credit card details anywhere on our website. They are simply passed securely to our e-payments processor for authorisation by your bank.
MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa (3D Secure)
MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa are new services that let you shop online with added confidence and security and protect you from fraud.
To use MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa all you need to do is register your card once, and create a password. Then, when you make a purchase online, a MasterCard SecureCode or Verified by Visa window will appear. Simply enter the characters requested from your password and click on the submit query button. Your identity is verified and the purchase is secure.
If you are registered for the scheme and have a password already, you will be asked to enter characters from your password after you have entered the card details and clicked on the ‘continue to payment’. Your card provider will then verify the characters you have entered and, if it matches their records, verify your transaction.
If your card provider is registered for the scheme but you personally are not, we will offer you the chance to sign up and create a password during the check out process. This is all handled through MasterCard SecureCode or Verified by Visa themselves. We simply pass your encrypted details on to your card provider securely.
If you would like further information, please contact your Mastercard or Visa issuer.
You can sign up to receive marketing communications from Sons of Heroes through the online sign up form, when you register for an online account or via the opt-in tick box found during the checkout process. Opt-in boxes will be pre-ticked on your behalf but you may always choose to un-tick the box.
