Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to use my credit/debit card details online?
At The Gift and Gadget Store we understand that security when shopping online is essential. Thats why the second you enter the order process, every piece of information that is transferred between you and us is 128 bit encrypted using SSL encryption. So even if it was intercepted, it would be useless information. Please look for the padlock when you enter the secure sections of our site. The small padlock normally appears at the bottom of your screen. You can also check the address bar, normally it will start http:// , however when you enter the secure pages it will add an "s" therefore it will begin https:// .
All our transactions are processed using SagePay, PayPal or Google Checkout. We do not see and therefore do not store any card details.
