Every time Home Hardware collects your personal information (such as your billing address, contact details and so on), a secure connection via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology is established with your web browser to ensure that your details are encrypted and securely communicated to us, safe from prying eyes or malicious threats.
Comprehensive security measures and access controls are in place to protect customer information collected and stored on our servers and systems, and ensure that these details are only accessible by authorised personnel for authorised reasons.
These security measures are routinely tested and validated by independent security companies in order to provide the highest levels of security to protect customer information.

Credit Card Security
When you provide your credit card details they are securely transferred by a 2048 bit SSL 3.0 Certificate to a site that specialises in managing credit card information (namely, Braintree). Home Hardware does not store your credit card details in our site or otherwise.
Home Hardware implements the Fraud Protection services of Braintree to prevent the unauthorised use of customer credit cards by unauthorised individuals. Real-time technology from their partner PayPal evaluates hundreds of data points for every transaction to reduce fraudulent transaction attempts, all in just milliseconds. If fraud is suspected then the transaction will be flagged as fraudulent and not passed to the bank. This provides an effective mechanism to protect customers and their credit cards from fraud.
