Please find below listed our security policy concerning our website leconcepts.com and Company
Information about our Organisation and Website
We are based in the UK and our principal activity is Home Cinema Retail and Installation.
Leading Edge Concepts (LE Concepts) is committed to ensuring that your security is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this site, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this security statement.
We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page so please be sure to check back frequently.
We take very great care to ensure that any personal information you enter on our website is kept safe. The following section explains how we keep your data secure.
When you type in your registration details or credit card number, our website automatically changes into secure mode. When you're submitting details on our site over the Internet, security is handled as follows:
1.Firstly, when your browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) connects with the secure side of our server (website computer), that connection is between you and the server alone.
2.Secondly, the information you're sending us will be encrypted before it begins its journey over the internet to leconcepts.com. This ensures that it can't be read by anyone else while it's in transit. In other words, during the communications between your browser and our server, the information is scrambled. This is known as encryption and our encryption is 128bit. 128bit encryption uses billions (2 to power of 128) of possible combinations to scramble the information. The enabling technology is called Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL for short.
3.Thirdly, any information we store internally so we can process your order, is kept on a computer system that operates independently of the web server
In summary, we've taken the appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information is not unlawfully processed. leconcepts.com uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, including "firewalls" and Secure Socket Layers. leconcepts.com treats data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorised access.
Why do screen prompts tell me I'm being transferred to an insecure site?
Ieconcepts.com policy is to use a secure protocol whenever personal information, such as account or credit card details, are being displayed or entered. When moving from these secure pages to unprotected pages, your browser may warn you of the fact.
Why does a screen prompt tell me my security certificate is out of date?
A certificate is a piece of software that your browser uses to encrypt your personal information when it's being transmitted to and from leconcepts.com. The message you're getting is probably erroneous. It's usually caused by older browser versions that don't process date information correctly. The solution is easy. Upgrade your browser to a newer version.
Why can't I see a padlock icon in Internet Explorer but can in Google Chrome ?
Some older versions of Internet Explorer do not use the padlock icon to indicate whether an online page is using a secure protocol. To check whether a page is secure, look at the URL in the address window. If it starts with the letters https instead of the usual http, it is secure. Alternatively, right click your mouse over the address window and select properties. If the page is secure, you'll see the words Transfer Protocol Privacy protected.
All transaction information processed is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent from our server are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely assured that nothing you pass to our servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
Encryption and Data Storage
Once on our systems, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government. The data we hold is extremely secure and we are regularly audited by our commercial bank to ensure it remains so.
LEConcepts is audited annually under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) and is a fully approved payment processor, achieving the appropriate level of compliance.
