Data Security on DC Dalgliesh

We take your information-protection seriously

We take our own site security, and your data privacy, very seriously. Our sister company, Scotweb, was the first Scottish company to invest in SSL secure e-commerce technology (in 1995) long before most people had heard of the Web. That was because we recognised early-on how important this issue is.

We will always treat your privacy and data security with the utmost care. We build our systems to the highest security standards and use the latest online security technology to ensure your credit card information stays safe. Our security practices mean you can be assured that your credit card data is actually safer ordering online with us than, for example, ordering anywhere by telephone.

You can supply your credit card details in confidence that this data will not be stolen or misused. We will not reveal details of our full security system here, since to do so might itself compromise our security. But the following assurances will address most concerns.

We never store credit card numbers on our servers.


We never receive or hold your credit card numbers from online transactions in our offices.

Our systems are built on the robust Linux operating system, known for its superior security.

When you place an order with us, your credit card number is only ever transmitted directly to our (Royal Bank of Scotland) approved banking facility.

Sensitive data  are securely encrypted, using a specialist state-of-the-art interception-proof transmission method implemented by the banking facility, for every stage of their communication route. We use high-grade public key encryption for the transmission of all personal data to and from our servers.

Any later adjustments, refunds, repeat charges (approved by yourself) etc. are transacted using a unique reference code unique to us and useless to anyone else, and not by using your actual credit card number.

Therefore your data is securely encrypted and invulnerable to interception at all points from leaving your computer to arriving with our approved banking facility.

This means you get the best of both worlds… the convenience of repeat shopping, and the confidence of total security!
