Hi

I want to order something from GMT but have noticed on the page where I supply my credit card details that not all of the page is secure.

Has anyone else encountered this?

Kind Regards

That just means that there are some elements of the page that link via http rather than https (usually graphics). Not really a problem.

Just to make you more paranoid, a secure page does not mean that your card details are kept secure. I'm not commenting on GMT here, but just because a page is secure doesn't mean that they don't then send the data by unsecure email or some other clear text method.

Lots of vendors have the same situation. In my browser, I'm given the option of viewing only the secure elements.

Sorry should have said I do know all that, and for others, this may clarify: https://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer...

I know people can do what they want with the details entered, but going through a site I know is legit, like GMT, I would hope they don't, and that all of that page is secure. Quite an easy thing to do, in MVC at least.

Just thought they were busy with their site, and was wondering if it was always like that?

Thanks!
