Beerstore takes the worry out of online shopping with the use of secure servers and secure socket layers (SSL) technology for the transfer of credit card information. This means that the credit card information you send is encrypted by your computer, and then decrypted again on our side, preventing others from accessing your private information in between. So, when using an SSL capable browser, shopping on our web site is the safest kind of transaction possible with a credit card.

Additionally, we have security measures in place to protect our customer database and access to the data is restricted internally.

Whilst we take care of the confusing jargon at our end, it is still your responsibility to protect your password from being disclosed to any third party.
