Credit card data transmission employs the "ammonet Secure"
system which utilises
the most modern, industry-standard encryption technology available. Transmitted
data are encrypted in transit, both from the buyer's computer to our server and
from our server to the merchant's computer. Unlike some other services, we store
all of our data on the secure server
in encrypted form. Nevertheless, we cannot definitively exclude the possibility
that our server could be accessed by unauthorised intruders. We therefore offer
no guarantee whatsoever that any data stored on our server are immune to
unauthorised access, and we accept no responsibility whatsoever for damages
arising from compromised encryption on our servers. We advise all of our
booksellers to delete data that are unlikely to be of future use.
