Protecting Your Security
To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. By continuing to use the website you accept these terms and conditions and accordingly consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information for payment clearance, credit reference, order fulfilment, delivery, data analysis or customer support. Please be assured that this is done only to confirm your identity, that a credit check is not performed and that your credit rating will be unaffected.
We may need to disclose your personal data where we are under a legal duty to comply with any legal obligation or in order to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions and other agreements. We may also need to disclose it to protect our rights, property or safety of our customers or others which includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

You can tell that the pages are secure because the address in the Address bar changes from being http:// to https://. You will also see a padlock symbol or key in the bottom bar of your browser.
If your credit or debit card is used fraudulently most banks and card issuers will not hold you responsible for any of the charges, or may only hold you liable for up to £50.00.
Our Guarantee In the extremely unlikely event that your credit card is used fraudulently as a direct result of ordering from us, then if your bank or credit card company holds you responsible (which it may not do), is that we will cover your liability up to £50.00, provided that the unauthorized use is through no fault of your own.
Note: This offer only applies to orders placed through our secure server, and there is a maximum liability of £50.00. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit or debit card, you must notify your card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.

This protects your data while being sent over the internet from being intercepted and misused by third parties.
We have installed a mechanism that uses digital server identities so that you can be sure that the website you access is www.responseelectronics.com. This is done using one of the internet Trusted Certification Authorities. When you access the secure pages of our site your browser will be provided with an electronic certificate confirming that you have accessed our site and all communications will be encrypted. When you create an online order / request or feedback that is then passed on to the relevant destination using the same level of encryption, Firewalls are used to block unauthorised traffic to the servers and the actual servers are located in a secure location which can only be accessed by authorised personnel.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. We also recommend that you avoid using the same password for different online accounts.
