Security information

Nightingale will always treat all of your personal information as confidential and fully comply with all UK Data Protection legislation. We only collect, store and process your personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2011.

Our website operates through a secure server which uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology to make sure that all your credit or debit card transactions are completely secure.

What is SSL and how can you tell it is in use?

To ensure your transactions are secure, uses the latest SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and encrypts all payment information.

If the URL of a secure document begins with "https://", the "s" indicates a secure channel to the server. Also, when security (SSL) is present, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome display a padlock icon, which is closed once a secure channel is established.

When making a payment always look at the URL to see if either the https:// shows in the browser or you can see the padlock, or both. If you can’t see these, or if you are unhappy in any way, don’t proceed.

SSL uses public-key encryption using keys of various sizes, 40-, 56-, 128-bit, etc. The larger the key length and number of possible keys, the more difficult it is for unauthorised persons to decrypt or read the message. For example, messages encrypted with a 128-bit key are much more secure than a message encrypted with a 40-bit key.

When you use our website, the secure server will encrypt all of the personal information you send us. We use Sage Pay to collect and process transaction information.

Nightingale does not store any credit or debit card details. We will take all reasonable measures to keep your personal information, order and payment details secure. However, we cannot be held liable if any event beyond our control results in loss to you.
