Regarding your credit or debit card details, LED Lightworld has teamed up with leading UK payment processors Payment Sense
Payment Sense e-commerce payment and security services are amongst the most advanced in the industry, employing secure sockets layer (SSL) technology during the on-line ordering process to protect your payment card information. Every transaction processed is checked using fraud control systems in order to validate the authenticity of your payment card and detect indicators of possible fraudulent use, such as an incorrect address or CV2 number.
What happens to my credit card details if I place an order on-line?
When you enter your credit card details, everything you type, is instantly encrypted (scrambled, like eggs). At no time is your credit card number e-mailed or accessible to anyone at payment sense or LED Lightworld
For the Techies: When you place an order through our shopping basket, your personal information is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, the industry standard security protocol for encoding sensitive information. SSL creates a shared digital key, which only lets the sender and the receiver of the transmission scramble or unscramble information. To everyone else, the SSL transmission is indecipherable.
How do I know if I have a 'secure' connection?
To verify your secure connection look for a gold key or padlock on your screen. This is normally displayed as a broken key or open padlock. When you are viewing a secure page the key changes to a solid gold key or the padlock snaps shut confirming a secure connection. You will also notice that the address line in your browser window changes from http:// to https://
