Site Security & Secure Shopping
At FutureShop.co.uk, all online transactions are processed on a secure server using the industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. The encryption process takes the characters you enter and converts them into bits of code that are then securely transmitted over the Internet. This means that all debit and credit card numbers, as well as personal information such as names and addresses are encrypted as they are transmitted over the Internet from your browser to our server. Look out for the ‘golden’ padlock in status bar at the bottom of your browser when you login and proceed to the checkout.
FutureShop.co.uk uses a secure server which has been issued with a Secure Server Digital Certificate by the online Certification Authority Thawte and has been authorised to display the Thawte Authentic Site Seal. The Thawte Digital ID is an electronic licence credential for online business. It confirms that futureshop.co.uk is a legitimate web site which establishes an encrypted communication channel protecting the information you send when submitting details for payment in the Shop.
