Are my details safe when ordering online with ASOS?
Safer than it's ever been.
We use one of the most secure online ordering systems on the market, and are constantly researching and improving our software to make sure we offer the highest possible security at all times Also, we are a senate member of IMRG, the leading industry body for global online retailing, which promotes the highest possible industry standards and best practices, to ensure honest and truthful online transactions.
We utilise industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of potentially sensitive information such as your name, address and other critically sensitive information like your credit card details. Information passed between your computer and our website cannot be read in the event someone else intercepts it. This technology includes the following features:
- Authentication - this assures your browser that your data is being sent to the correct computer server, and that the server is secure.
- Encryption - this encodes the data, so that it cannot be read by anyone other than the secure server.
- Data Integrity - this checks the data being transferred to ensure it has not been altered.
In the unlikely incidence of unauthorised use of your card, you must report the incident immediately to your credit card provider in order to qualify for security protection.
