About us
If you are concerned about the security implications of doing your shopping over the Internet, you will find this guide useful:

Part 1 - The Basics (below)
Part 2 - Encryption
Part 3 - What to look for
Part 4 - Your rights
Part 5 - Safer than...

1.   The Basics
You've probably heard about hackers breaking into the CIA's mainframe.  You've probably heard about hackers taking down Microsoft's web site.  And you've probably heard about credit card details being stolen over the Internet. 

Well, all of these things have happened, and they'll probably happen again.  But take a look at the big picture: this is a global network of millions of computers, and every now and again one or two undesirables will make their presence felt, just as they do in every city centre.

When it comes to online shopping, you have to weigh up the advantages as opposed to the risks.  The points in favour of web commerce are plentiful and obvious: convenience, value, environmentally friendly business, choice, personal safety...the list is impressive.  The disadvantage is one thing only - that there is a minute chance that your credit card details may fall into the wrong hands.  However, as we will explain over the next 4 pages, you should be more concerned about whether you put the pizza in the oven at 10 past or 20 past.....

Next: Part 2 - Encryption
