  4. Online Services
    1. Online Payments
      1. How we protect your information
        To ensure that your card details are secure, you will only be able to make online payments if you have Internet Explorer 5.5 installed on your PC. Internet Explorer 5.5 supports Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which is an industry standard to internet payments. This means all of you personal card details are protected using 128 bit encryption when your details are transmitted over the Internet. This makes it virtually impossible for anyone else to discover and use your details.
      2. Check you are using a secure site
        Check your browser encryption strength by using your mouse to hover over a padlock icon in the bottom right and cornet or your browser window (it should be a closed padlock). When you do this, it should tell you that it is SSL secured 128 bit.
      3. Using public computers
        If you share your PC, or if you are using it in a library of Internet Café, you should completely disconnect from pooletourism.com and eatoutpoole.com to ensure that your card details remain secure when you have finished making your payment.
