Ordering and paying for online orders with BBC MK is both safe and secure. Security is one of the greatest fears when placing online orders and we, as a company, have invested in a totally secure and safe site for you to shop. Once you checkout, we encrypt all your details using Internet standard encryption technology (SSL).
If a site is secure a padlock will appear in the bottom right hand section of your screen when you are in the credit card entry area. Occasionally, the padlock will not be visible but the page is still secure. If you do not see the padlock, you can check by right-clicking anywhere on the page (except on an image) and select Properties. If the URL starts https: the s indicates that the page is secure.
