Information security

Please be aware that communications over the Internet, such as emails/webmails, are not secure unless they have been encrypted. The form of security that we use is Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). This is a method of hiding the information that a web browser and a web server send to each other. An SSL-enhanced browser uses encryption to scramble the data you send to a website into an unintelligible string of seemingly random characters. This is the industry standard for encrypting digital communications between any two points across a network.

Despite the encryption described above, your communications may route through a number of countries before being delivered - this is the nature of the internet - and Powerpac Ltd is therefore unable to guarantee the security of any information you transmit to or via our Website.

We do, however, have appropriate policies, rules and security measures in place to protect the personal information that we have under our control.
