What browser can I use?

The web site has been fully tested on a number of browsers on the majority of existing computer operating systems. It uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to format the textual information within each page. Only browsers from version 4 upwards fully understand CSS formatting.

Can I print pages?

Any page can be printed from the web by the user selecting file, print from the menu option within Microsoft IE or Netscape.

Secure Sessions

When you start the payment process you are said to be in a “secure session”.  You know you are in a secure session if the URL address begins with https:// or a padlock symbol appears in the lower right hand corner of your browser.


SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology is used within your payment session to encrypt information before it leaves your computer.  This ensures that no one else can read it.  Encryption converts your data into an encoded form before it is sent over the Internet.  This stops any unauthorised users from reading the information.
