We at The Legal Stop believe that trust and safety are essential in all successful relationships and transactions.

We place great emphasis on security to ensure that our customers can buy with confidence. We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorised access to data these include computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for all orders placed, this prevents you from inadvertently revealing any personal information.

When you send your personal details to us, none of the information is stored on the website. We never store any of your sensitive financial information on our servers and we never share your contact details with anyone.

All of your personal information is encrypted as it travels over the Internet. When you submit personal information in connection with making a payment via our website, such personal information is encrypted and protected with encryption software which lets your browser automatically encrypt data before you send it to us. You can tell this is happening as browsers will display a key or padlock at the bottom left corner of the screen.

When you make a purchase your web browser connects with the website through an SSL ("Secure Sockets Layer"). SSL is an industry-standard protocol for encryption over the Internet. When information is encrypted, it is scrambled between your computer and our server. The information is only unscrambled when it safely reaches us. It is fast and safe, and it ensures that your personal information cannot be read by anyone else.

If you see a security message during the payment process it is simply informing you that you are entering a secure area of the site. You will also see this message when you are severing the connection with our secure server, and moving into an open, public area of the site. At this point all of your personal information has been discarded whether or not you actually completed a purchase. Your browser can be configured to display this message or not, as you choose.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We strongly recommend that you always close down your internet browser after checkout, especially if you use a shared PC. This will delete temporary internet cookies from any sites that you may have visited and ensure other users do not see your personal details. If you have any further concerns about security please contact us by e-mail at


Internet Fraud - Phishing

There is an Internet fraud practice known as "Phishing" which is the illegal gathering of personal information by deception.
