1.10 Security

1.10.1 At Grace Cheetham, we realise how important it is to securely store any information that you provide us. Our site currently uses high-level encryption technology. You can therefore rest assured that we take the security of your payment and personal details very seriously.

1.10.2 You can tell whether a webpage is secure as ‘https’ will replace the ‘http’ at the front of the www.nutriciseoxford.co.uk in your browser address window. Also a small locked padlock will appear in the bottom bar of your browser window.

1.10.3 While we currently use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect your information off-line. All of your information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.

The servers on which we store your personal information are kept in a secure environment.

1.11 Phishing

1.11.1 Phishing is the practice of tricking someone into giving confidential information. Examples include falsely claiming to be a legitimate company when sending an email to a user, in an attempt to get the user to send private information that will be used for identity theft and fraud.

1.11.2 Grace Cheetham will never ask you to send any personal details via email. If we require such details, for security reasons we will ask you to contact us by telephone.
