Security & privacy


Your credit card information is encrypted which means that ONLY the receiver of the information (i.e. Chocolate Trading Co.) can read this information. To do this we use the industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128 bit encryption technology (when in use you will see the padlock at the bottom of the browser) which is the recognised standard for secure transactions.

We have the BT Trustwise Secure Server certificate which ensures the strongest encryption currently available used by all reputable e-commerce stores.

Please note that general email correspondence is not encrypted and is, therefore, not considered a secure means of sending credit card details.

Should you have any queries relating to either privacy or security you can email or telephone 01625 508224
