SECURE ORDERING PROCESS
Any credit card information you enter through our site is strongly encrypted by industry-standard protocol,
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). BePrepared.ie uses SSL to communicate with secure browsers like Netscape and
Internet Explorer. These browsers encrypt your credit card and personal information in a way that makes
it extremely difficult for anyone to decode.
Once you have completed your order online, our security procedures do not end. For example, the moment
you press "submit" to send you order, the encrypted order is sent directly to our order processing system.
Your order is automatically pushed through the system and never "sits" in an unsecured queue.
If you are still unsure of giving your credit card over the Internet, please feel free to phone, fax, or mail your order to us.
For telephone ordering or assistance, please call +353 (0)57 936 5501.
