Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
SSL is a technology that uses the encrypted connection between server and web browser. In order to use SSL, businesses have to get an SSL certificate, which they need to install on their server. When this is done, every connection between a web server and browser is encrypted, which means that every data sent via the submitted form is only visible to the web owner. This helps to protect online users against hackers, who try to steal user’s information.
The collection and use of personal data by online businesses in the UK must comply with the UK data protection laws. This policy is designed to allow the website operator to comply with the fair processing obligation and to obtain the user’s consent to that processing as required by law.
