Runkels Crafts understands that there is public concern about disclosing credit card details on-line and the possibility of subsequent fraud.

Our shopping site uses state-of the-art technology to ensure that your number is shielded from public view and takes place on a 'secure' part of our web site - protected by Secpay, a leading UK Payment Service Provider. Your personal details are specially 'coded' into encrypted information.
There is no other person or company apart from ourselves who can access your information. Only authorised staff access your details, and this information is kept secret from the world wide web by a digital barrier called a 'firewall'.

If you aren't fully convinced that your transaction is safe then feel free to telephone or fax us and we will be pleased to take your order off-line. You can always visit a specialist delicatessen if you would like to make a transaction face-to-face. A list of stockists can be found on this web site.

We use Barclays Merchant Services to provide our online bank account, Secpay to encrypt your personal details and an experienced e-commerce agency to program the software to take care of our transactions.
