Shopping Online - Security Tips

Shopping online has become a part of everyday life but many still worry that their credit card or bank details will land in the wrong hands or that the goods bought on the internet may not be all they seem.  Follow these tips to help keep your online shopping a safe and secure experience.

Check out the company's validity
  • Research the company on line and look at the website’s feedback function, always see what other customers have said about their recent transactions with the company.
  • Look for their contact details and give them a ring.  Reputable companies will always display their contact details and welcome customer contact.  Just because the web address has ‘UK’ in it don’t assume an internet company is based in the UK.
  • Spelling mistakes and bad grammar can be an indication that the company may not be legitimate or may have been developed abroad. Although shopping from overseas websites is not necessarily unsafe it may be difficult to enforce your contract if things go wrong.
  • Be careful when buying items from people with little or no selling history. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS, if you are unsure, consider shopping elsewhere.

Paying for goods
  • Paying by credit card or PayPal will give you added protection.
  • Try to avoid paying by bank transfers – they are not secure.
  • Don’t send confidential personal or financial information by email.

Other things you should consider before buying
  • What are the postage and packaging costs?
  • Check the delivery times – try and be there when your goods are delivered.
  • Is billing up front or on delivery?
  • Can you track the item in the delivery process?
  • Is there a warranty or guarantee for defects?
  • What is their cancellation or return policy and who will pay these costs?
  • Is there a cooling off period?

Scams
  • Be wary of opening unsolicited emails or links within emails if you don’t know the sender. Many of these emails may ask you to make contact or send your details for verification. If any promise made sounds too good to be true then in reality it probably is.
  • If you bid for an item unsuccessfully, don’t be tempted to trade off site if another seller makes contact with a similar items

Bicycle security

What can you do to protect your property?

  • If you haven’t done so already register your bicycle’s frame number along with any pictures and other details you have on www.immobilise.com.  (Registration on Immobilise only takes a few minutes and it’s free. All you need is your bike's make, model, identifying number code(s) and a few photographs).  If your bike is stolen or lost this free online register will inform all UK police and registered second hand dealers that your bike is missing and should it be offered for sale to a registered dealer or come into contact with any police force then a check of the system could reunite you with your stolen or lost bike.

  • Invest in a quality lock, eg a D lock, to help reduce the risk of your bike being stolen. Consider using two different types at the same time, as thieves rarely carry tools to break two different lock types.

  • Lock your bike every time you leave it – it only takes seconds to steal! Keep the gap between the bike and the lock small, so inserting tools is made harder and where ever possible keep the locking barrel facing the ground too as this makes access more difficult.

  • Look at where you are storing your bike and make sure that your shed or garage is secured with a good quality lock. Many shed windows are never used, if this is the case – why not screw them shut. Fitting mesh or steel bars across the window from the inside allows light to enter but means the thief has to go to a lot of trouble to remove them. Replace broken glass with laminated glass. Consider putting an alarm on the shed too – this could be a battery alarm or look at having the shed connected to the house alarm if you already have one.

  • Consider buying a cycle anchor that can be bolted to the wall or floor of your shed which your cycle can then be fastened to or if you have several cycles lock them altogether.

  • If you are having to leave your bike out on the street, where possible leave it in a well lit area and lock both the frame and wheels to the bike stand.  If there is no stand, ensure that it’s locked to secure street furniture eg railings or a lamp post. Try and avoid leaving your bike out overnight (even if well secured) as there are many valuable parts which could be gone by morning.
