privacy & security
The elemental website is a UK-based website and is in accordance with the requirements of the UK Data Protection Act 1998 relating to the personal information you supply on the webite. The website uses a security system that protects your information from unauthorised use. The website uses a secured Worldpay payment gateway.
Every time you enter an area of the website that has or requires sensitive information such as your credit card details, an icon in browser window will appear that looks like a padlock, indication that the site is secure. For instance on Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Safari:
Another indicator that your page is secure is that the 'https' will replace the 'http' url. Elemental.uk.com uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Private Communications Technology security standards that are supported by all popular browsers. SSL encodes your personal information and all your transactions are protected by this powerful SSL encryption technology. SSL encrypts your credit card number, name, address, phone number, identification number and password as it travels through the Internet, so that it cannot be read by anyone other than the secure server.
As a further security measure we do not keep a record of your credit/debit card details internally on our site. We store only name, email, address(es), contact details and logs of items ordered. Worldpay may or may not keep your credit/debit card details on their system.
Elemental is compliant with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). This is a global mandate standard which has been introduced by all the major card schemes.
