Your Details Are Secure with Us!

The Rigby Taylor website utilises firewalls and the latest network security to safeguard your information throughout the transaction.

Secured by Thawte

Thawte is a leading global Certification Authority. Their SSL and code signing digital certificates are used globally to secure servers, provide data encryption, authenticate users, protect privacy and assure online identities through stringent authentication and verification processes.

More information about Thawte can be found on the Thawte website.

3D Secure

To further protect your security we have introduced the 3D Secure 'MasterCard SecureCode' and 'Verified By Visa' system. These services are provided by MasterCard and Visa and allow you to protect your card details using your own password.

If you are already set up with 'MasterCard SecureCode' or 'Verified By Visa' a secure window from your financial institution will appear requesting the password for your card. Simply enter your password and click submit.

If you are not already set up you may be given the option to create a password for your card. Once this has been done you will be able to continue with your order. Any future orders you place either at Rigby Taylor or any other website that uses 3D Secure will ask for this password during the payment process.

More information about 3D Secure, 'MasterCard SecureCode' and 'Verified By Visa' can be found on the Shop Safe Online website.

Protection of Information Being Transmitted

Another line of defence is our use of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) up to 256-bit encryption, the industry standard and best available secure transaction technology. This technology lets you select "secured" or "unsecured" shopping.

If your browser is capable of SSL, you should use the "secured" option, which means all sensitive information will be encrypted before being sent over the Internet. Your checkout transactions are secure from unauthorised access (SSL is supported by Netscape 2.0+, Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0+, and most frames-enabled browsers). When you initiate a checkout transaction, the rest of your visit will take place on our secure server. Every secure page on our web site has been secured with a digital certificate by Thawte Inc. This is indicated by the "site certificate" that is resident on all secure pages.

How can I tell if a site is safe?

You can configure Internet Explorer, FireFox or Netscape browsers to alert you to secured pages or sites. Microsoft Internet Explorer displays a security icon in your browsers status bar. To view the certificate, double click on the icon.

Netscape Navigator displays an icon or https:// in your browsers address field to indicate a secure connection. To view the certificate double click on the icon in your browsers status bar.
