Credit Card SecurityTop

We take online security extremely seriously and have taken several steps to ensure that your payment information is processed confidentially and accurately.

Chain Reaction Cycles offer the use of secure servers where information is protected by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the industry standard encryption technology. SSL works with Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, AOL and other browsers. This encryption makes it virtually impossible for unauthorised parties to read any information that you send us.

When your order is processed your encrypted credit card number is removed from the web server.

This means that there is no way that someone can obtain your credit card number from CRC so you can order with confidence!

Please be aware that in the interests of credit card security you may be contacted prior to the dispatch of your order with a request for additional information.
