Your transaction security
We realise how important it is to securely store any information that you provide. Birminghamoptical.co.uk maintains the highest levels of security. Our site uses high-level SSL encryption technology, the most advanced security software currently available for online transactions. You can therefore rest assured that we take the privacy and security of your payment and personal details very seriously.
You can tell whether a page is secure as ‘https’ will replace the ‘http’ at the front of the www.birminghamoptical.co.uk in your browser address window. A small locked padlock will also appear in the bottom bar of your browser window.
Phishing is the practice of tricking someone into giving confidential information. Examples include falsely claiming to be a legitimate company when sending an e-mail to a user, in an attempt to get the user to send private information that will be used for identity theft and fraud.
We’ll never ask you to send any personal details via email. If we require such details, for security reasons we’ll ask you to contact us by phone. Should you receive an email claiming to be from birminghamoptical.co.uk requesting this kind of information, please don’t respond, but do let us know about it.
