We have put in place physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to us. To safeguard the information delivered to us electronically, our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL encrypts your credit card number, name and address so only we are able to decode your information. However, unfortunately no data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure, so whilst we will take all steps reasonably necessary to protect and ensure the security of your contact information we cannot guarantee it and any information you transmit to or from our websites is done so at your own risk.
We strongly advise you to keep confidential any password that you create for use on our website and not to share it with anyone. To ensure others cannot access your account please remember to log off after your visit and close your browser. This is especially important if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.
Secure Sockets Layer, or "SSL", is the security technology used by Kidshatsandmore.ie for encrypting a link between a web server and a browser. All data passed between our web server and your browser remains completely private and secure. For example, using SSL, your computer and ours agree to transpose whatever we are sending into an unintelligible hash of characters. For example:
3048 0241 00C9 18FA CF8D EB2D EFD5 FD37 89B9 E069 EA97 FC20 5E35 F577 EE31 C4FB C6E4 4811 7D86 BC8F BAFA 362F 922B F01B 2F40 C744 2654 C0DD 2881 D673 CA2B 4003 C266 E2CD CB02 0301 0001
Through using SSL, we can ensure that your valuable personal data is fully encrypted when you interact with our site. Without this information on your computer or ours, no one can understand our encrypted communication. For your online safety, please expect anyone who communicates confidential information with you on the Internet to use encryption, the way we do. Whenever you communicate with us on secure sections of Kidshatsandmore.ie you'll notice that http:// is replaced by https:// , and look out for the padlock symbol.
To generate an encrypted SSL transmission, a web server requires an SSL Certificate. Checking a website's certificate is good practice that helps you avoid spoof websites, sometimes called "phishing" sites. To check the certificate, click on the padlock. Your browser will show you the name of the owner of the certificate. This name should match the name of the website operator.
To receive a SSL Certificate, we had to demonstrate that we are an existing business, along with our control over the domain you are visiting. When you shop online, you deserve to know who you are interacting with.
Seeing a site with an SSL Certificate, confirms two essential factors
- That you have a secure SSL (encrypted) link with this website
- That this website represents a real organization
