1.6 The secure credit card payment system is powered by eWAY Payment Systems. This Website is protected by SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a security device which ensures that any data which you enter into a secure area of the site is encrypted during transmission over the Internet. SSL utilises data encryption to create a secure environment for you to conduct your online transactions. In order for SSL to be effective, you must be using an SSL compliant browser (e.g. Netscape Navigator 3.0 or Internet Explorer Microsoft 3.0 and above). In Netscape you can determine whether encryption is active by looking at the little key in the lower left-hand corner of the Netscape window. A solid key indicates that the document is encrypted, while a broken key indicates that the document is not encrypted. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, a solid padlock will appear on the bottom right of the screen when encryption is in use.
