We undertake to keep any personal information about our registered users absolutely confidential. We will never pass your details to a third party.

All payments are processed through either PAYPAL or else REALEX PAYMENTS to provide a secure, robust and reliable payment processing service. Their systems and security controls are based on current industry standards and include several layers of technology to ensure the confidentiality, authentication and integrity of information.

  • Realex Payments have been accredited with the AIS (Account Information Security) certification by VISA and is one of the few companies in Europe to achieve this. This shows their commitment to above industry standard in every aspect of payment processing.
  • All information when in transit via the internet is encrypted (128bit SSL) to ensure confidentiality of sensitive data.
  • All messages sent to Realex Payments and the responses from Realex Payments are authenticated using digitally signed digests.
  • All requests are verified against a legal list of IP address and referring URLs.
  • Realex Payments' technical infrastructure is located in secure co-location facilities that have 24x7 manned security and advanced building management systems along with environmental controls.
  • Critical servers and applications are monitored constantly to threshold levels and Realex Payments staff is instantly alerted via their real time monitoring and alerting service.
  • All connections to the financial institutions are over private dedicated leased circuits, backed up with ISDN lines and in certain cases VPN connections over the internet.
  • The network is designed to be highly resilient with duplicate and triplicate systems in place depending on the critical nature of each component.
  • Realex Payments are registered with the data protection commissioner as a "Data Processor". Cardholder information is encrypted and not displayed in our reporting systems - realcontrol.

Where users have chosen to enable Google to associate their web and app browsing history with their Google account, and to use information from their Google account to personalize ads they see across the web, Google will use data from its signed-in users together with our Google Analytics data to build and define audience lists for cross-device remarketing. In order to support this feature, Google Analytics will collect these users’ Google-authenticated identifiers, which are Google’s personal data, and temporarily join them to our Google Analytics data in order to populate our audiences.

As always, Google users can control their ads experience (or opt out of personalized ads altogether) at My Account.
