We have taken steps to ensure the security and privacy of our systems. Our user’s data and personal information are handled by a market leading secure payment system, Barclaycard Merchant Services. Through SagePay (formerly Protx), they offer the security measures you would expect in dealing with one of the world’s major banks, and also incorporates the additional MasterCard "MasterCard Securecode" and Visa "Verified by Visa" security systems. At checkout you are transferred via a secure server to Barclaycard Merchant Services, a 128bit SSL encrypted secure page where you complete your order by providing your credit or debit card details. Your browser encrypts the information that you type and the Barclaycard server decodes it. Systems which encrypt potentially sensitive information by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology provide the best possible protection on the internet. You can identify that you are on a secure site when the padlock appears at the bottom of the screen.
All card details are encrypted using 128-bit encryption; they are not held in clear text on any Website. When you choose to pay online, your card details will not be available to Dogs Stuff staff. Your card details are input into the Barclaycard secure site and we do not have access to them at any time. Your card and address details are security checked and verified with the relevant card issuer and your payment is pre-authorised. You will receive a message in your internet browser window to tell you that payment has been authorised, and we will receive confirmation from the payment provider. We are not liable for any unauthorised payments.
