Frequently asked questions about the Patrick Cameron website and our policies.
2 - How is my credit card protected?
Your credit card information is encrypted through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This technology ensures that the information remains private and secure. To check the security of your connection, check the indicator in your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock, then SSL is active. Some versions of browsers and some firewalls do not permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you'll be unable to connect to the server so you will not have to worry about mistakenly placing an order through an unsecured connection. If you can't access the secure server, for whatever reason, please place your order by calling us on 0800 130 3989.
