Control of Your Password
Credit Card Security
We work diligently to protect the security of your personal information, including credit card information.
We protect your credit card information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. When paying by credit card, you can choose to "save this card for next time". If you choose this option, your credit card details are encrypted and securely stored by Direct Payment Solutions (DPS).
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by ensuring you logoff when you have finished visiting Prowze using a shared computer.
Prowze mostly uses "session" cookies, which are removed from your computer once you leave the site. These are used so our service can remember that you have logged in already and prevent you doing so more frequently. The technology we use (Microsoft Active Server Pages), requires the use of session cookies. Session cookies expire and are deleted after 30 minutes of no activity on Prowze.
Prowze also uses persistent cookies to personalise the user experience, to help protect our members and to provide us with research information (such as how often members visit Prowze each month). Persistent cookies allow us to track users on Prowze and helps us identify users abusing the Prowze service.
