Security on any online shopping site is obviously of paramount
importance to customers and retailers alike, and we are no different. When
you start the order process you can be sure that every step of the way is
100% secure. Below are answers to a few questions we are commonly
How Secure am I?
Very. Throughout the order process, every bit of information that is
transferred between you, our web sites, and us is encrypted using 128 bit encryption
through the SSL (secure sockets layer) mechanism built into your browser.
The encryption turns the data into code which means that even if someone
could intercept it, they would not be able to understand it. It is safer
to order online than with traditional mail or telephone shopping!

How do I know the website is secure?
When in a secure area of the site, your browser will display a picture
of a small closed padlock towards the bottom of the screen. It is rare for
this padlock not to show when you are in a secure area. If you are in
doubt, right click on the page and select 'properties' or 'view frame
info'. This will bring up details of the page you are looking at,
including information about the connection.
Another way is to look out for the change in the URL (the web site
address). A standard page will begin with "http://". A secure web page will
begin with the "https://" denoting that you are viewing the page via a
Payment for Online Purchases
Your credit card information is gathered at our secure checkout via
Sage Pay. Sage Pay is level 1 PCI DSS compliant and are
active members of the PCI SSC (Security
Standards Council). Sage Pay has multiple private links
into the banking network that are completely separate from the Internet
and which do not cross any publicly accessible networks. Any cardholder
information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is
secure and cannot be tampered with, the information remains with the bank
and George Weil & Sons Ltd have no access to this sensitive data.
When you choose the option of paying with a credit/debit
card, you will proceed to a secure payment page. The information you
supply through the SagePay check-out is processed by your credit/debit
card issuer and you will be asked to validate your purchase by entering
the password you have registered with them.
Orders taken over the telephone are dealt with in a traditional manner
and customers are asked for their payment details. Payment card
details are stored only until the transaction has been completed.
Do I have any Legal Protection?
You are protected by the normal laws of England, in particular The
Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994 (c. 35) and the Consumer Protection Act
