Always ensure when you are entering card details, you can see a locked padlock or unbroken key symbol next to the address bar or at the bottom of the page.  Double clicking on the padlock symbol will display further security information for the site. When you are asked for payment information, we use secure forms from Sage Pay, and your payment is taken from Sage Payís own secure site. You will see the padlock etc when you are asked for your payment details by Sage Pay.
  2. Have a look for the sites Security policy.  This should detail what information they are going to collect and how they are going to use it.

Security Code?

The card security code is a unique three or four-digit number printed on your debit/credit card. This number is not embossed on the card and hence not printed on receipts - making it difficult for anyone other than the genuine cardholder to know it.

Some card issuers refer to this number as the 'Card Security Code' others as the 'personal security code' and others as 'Card Verification Value'.

Some cards, many UK-issued cards for example, have a three-digit number printed at the top of the signature strip on the reverse of the card.
