With the security of online purchases and protection of personal information a priority for our customers, David Coton is pleased to announce that gardensite.co.uk is now fully secure across the whole site.
Our shopping basket pages have offered full data protection for many years, and now the use of a secure server has been extended across the entire site. Most major retail websites are yet to make this step in securing all their pages, but now GardenSite customers can relax at all times while shopping with us as their online transactions could not be more safer
Simply safer shopping. As the world wide web is growing so is the risk of cyber attacks and vulnerabilities, as a result of the new protocol we have implemented these threats are minimised.
Most customers will not notice this new security measure but look at the website and you'll see that the page URL now begins with 'https' instead of 'http'. This means that all data passed between connections (our web server and your web browser) will remain private and integral at all times. The connection benefits from the maximum level of encryption, and GardenSite also has an extended validation (EV) certificate provided by Symantec, a leading global security firm.
To achieve this we have undergone rigorous validation of not just our website but the company as a whole. This is indicated by the ‘green bar of trust’ that visually indicates to shoppers that they are completely secure .
Web sites which are secured with SSL encryption will show a green padlock icon next to the URL in the top left of your browser. You will notice that while browsing GardenSite and even this blog, that the start of the URL has turned green, which means that pages you browse and any information passed between your computer/device and our servers are secure and encrypted.
If you have further questions about our website security, or simply prefer to order over the phone, please contact us seven days a week on 0121 355 7701.
In these uncertain times it's reassuring to know that Barlow Tyrie have been designing and manufacturing top quality teak furniture for nearly a century, and they have announced several new ranges to coincide with their one hundredth birthday.
Keeping everything we offer on GardenSite fresh with the widest choice is always important, that's why David Coton recently paid a visit to Royalcraft, who offer an impressive selection of high quality outdoor furniture that we will feature next year.
It's autumn and David Coton is getting the garden prepared for the onset of colder weather but, at the same time, the arrival of spring bulbs in the garden centre is a reminder that we should also now be planning ahead for next year.
There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, sound advice and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites during 2019.
