In cooperation with our merchant bank and payment service provider we have implemented 3D Secure, the payment industry's internet authentication standard often referred to as Mastercard Securecode, or Verified by VISA. This process has been developed by the major card schemes to protect you the cardholder, and us, the merchant, from fraudulent or unauthorised use of your card. 3D Secure can be thought of as an online version of 'Chip and Pin' technology, whereby the cardholder has a personalised password registered with their card that is entered during the checkout process. Registration is a voluntary 'once only' process that takes only a few minutes and most of the major issuing banks have adopted this security measure.
All information gathered about you during checkout is transmitted and stored using 128 bit encryption implemented by SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technology which is an industry-wide protocol devised for the safe transmission of data.
Your payment card data is passed directly to our merchant bank payment gateway via SSL encryption, during the checkout process, and is not stored in any form by ourselves. Our merchant bank payment service provider is CreditCall, who are certified to the highest level of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) so you know the transaction data we process is in the safest possible hands. Our SSL Certificate has been issued and authenticated by GeoTrust who are a wholly owned subsidiary of VeriSign Inc, the worlds largest and most respected issuer of security certificates. General information that we gather, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers are retained to enable us to process your order and dispatch your goods and also contact you if we need to with regard to customer services issues. All data is stored in compliance with the 1998 Data Protection Act and Sound Exposure is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office. We are totally committed to fraud prevention and customer protection. We do not sell, exchange or share your details with other businesses or organisations whatsoever, so you can purchase with complete confidence.
Additionally, we may require customers to satisfy extra security checks. In the main, this is for international customers and we may require a scan of your credit card (front and back) and/or a scan of your passport or other forms of ID.
EU VAT Registered Customers
If you are based outside of Great Britain and hold a valid EU VAT Number, we can zero-rate your transaction. If you are a registered customer and are being charged VAT, please contact our sales team and we will arrange for your user account to be amended to reflect the zero rating.
If you are not registered, please include your VAT number in the ‘additional information’ field at the bottom of the checkout page, when ordering. Once this number has been verified, the VAT will be removed from your order total by us, and you will be refunded the difference to your original payment method.
Stock & Lead Times
Occassionally, products ordered are not physically available to us as we may have run out of stock or may be waiting for a new shipment to arrive from our supplier. Our restocking procedures are efficient, but if particular products are popular with customers, it may be necessary for us to order more from the manufacturers to keep up with their demand. If this is the case you will notified as soon as possible, and given a lead time on when to expect the goods to be delivered.
