Biz take security very seriously, we use one of the strongest available security systems to protect your communications with us. When you purchase products or services online through www.biz.co.uk your data is automatically protected using something called a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) between your computer and ours. SSL is an industry standard for data encryption and is one of the best ways to ensure internet messages are not intercepted. SSL works in the following ways:
It prevents impersonation - you can tell that you are using a genuine SSL site by the padlock symbol at the bottom of the screen.
It encrypts data - as soon as your computer has recognised our computer they encrypt all information that is passed between them. Data encryption means that no one else can read or change your information as it travels over the Internet.
It prevents scrambling - SSL uses a Message Authentication Code (MAC) to prevent anyone tampering with our Internet site. Your computer will always check this code before it takes a message from us. This means that if anyone tried to interfere with a message, your computer would not recognise the code and would alert you.
As with any standard email, emails containing your personal data sent to or from Biz will travel in a non-encrypted format.
Biz will never ask you to enter personal bank account or credit card details into an email or through a link sent via an email. You will only be asked for your card payment details if you wish to purchase our products or services or change or cancel a previous order. We require this information specifically to debit or credit your card in relation to your order.
We continually review our security practices and reserve the right to make changes; all changes will be posted on this web site. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, by using www.Biz.co.uk, you are voluntarily transmitting information to us, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the information transmitted to our site and any transmission is at your own risk. We recommend that you use appropriate encryption.
