  • Only use secure web pages when entering your card details. You can tell this by looking at the web address at the top of the page, this should have the prefix https:// instead of the normal http:// (the Ďsí denotes secure). You should also see a yellow locked lock on the bottom right hand corner of your web browser. This means that any information you send will be encrypted and canít be read by a third party if it is intercepted. Royal Snooker use 128 bit encryption (the highest available) with our payment processors Paypal and Nochex.
  • Protect your computer with a Virus checker and Firewall, as some virusís that load on to your computer or hackers accessing your computer can detect your passwords or entered card details.
