Privacy and Security

How secure is the Pro-X website?
Security is the main consideration for online purchasing which is why we take security very seriously at Sheffield Fitness Store

Whenever your personal information is sent to or from us we ensure that the information is sent securely using the latest SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layers). This means that the information cannot be intercepted and decrypted by anyone else - for tech-heads, we use a variable SSL encryption at 128 to 40 bit dependant on the browser capabilities. All of your orders and details are kept in a secure database on our webserver and can only be accessed by key members of the Pro-X staff and are not shared with anyone else.

But don't take our word for it!
Whenever you login / register / order you will see this in the top right hand corner of the screen:

 This is a secure zone - look for the padlock icon in the bottom of your browser window Pro-X Secure Zone This is a secure zone - look for the padlock icon in the bottom of your browser window

This is an unofficial reminder to you that you are in a secure area of the website, but the official confirmation can be found by looking for the locked padlock icon This is a secure zone - look for the padlock icon in the bottom of your browser window on the bottom right (Internet Explorer) or bottom left (Netscape Navigator) of your browser window. This shows that you are using secure encryption. If you double click on the padlock it will bring up more details about our security certificate including the encryption level and the fact that the certificate is in our name!

You can also tell you are in a secure area by looking at the url of the page (in the address bar of your browser). This will always start with " https:// " instead of plain old http://

If you have any other questions about our security, please feel free to contact the webmaster
