Safe and secure shopping with Gift Rush online
HSBC, Paypal and Google handle all our online secure card transactions, via their Secure transaction gateways, which provide a safe and effective shopping system with these core elements:-
We use 3 different card payment services, you can use either HSBC, PayPal or Google, from here down we will use HSBC to mean your choice of the 3.
- State of the art security
- Acceptance of a wide range of cards
- Payments are handled by your choice or provider HSBC Group, PayPal or Google

- We are never passed card numbers from them, ever - Safe & Secure
HSBC will under take the card transaction on our behalf. Your personal card details are securely held by HSBC and at no stage will your card details ever be divulged to us.
Don't be put off that the style of the Website changes completely - this is deliberate, as the site that you are accessing is run by HSBC bank, a principal member of the HSBC Group, one of the world's largest banking and financial services organisations.
Other than when HSBC process your original payment or we process a refund for you, your credit card details are displayed in a truncated form with only the first 4 digits and the last 4 digits visible. For example your receipt and or invoice may print a partial credit card number in this way. This means that you will be able to check which card you used against the numbers, but in the unlikely event of your receipt and or invoice and on other media being stolen, your full credit card number would not be revealed.
When you speak to us about your order, you will never be asked to quote your full credit card number by our customer care staff unless it is to cancel and or refund an order or when you are not buying online i.e. mail order, telephone and or face to face orders.
Your Personal Information (non payment card)
We will only accept orders using Secure Socket Layer Encryption (SSL) technology - this means you cannot inadvertently reveal personal information by using an unsecured connection. The latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator both support this secure connection. If this option has been disabled on your browser, you will not be able to purchase or login the website until you reset these options, some help as follows:-
- For Netscape go to Communicator, Tools, Security Info, Navigator and tick 'Enable SSLv2' and 'Enable SSLv3' boxes
- For Internet Explorer go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and. tick the 'Use SSL 2.0' and 'Use SSL 3.0' boxes under 'Security'
Are You Secure Online
You can check that you are shopping in a secure environment by looking for an image of a key (Netscape) in the grey bar at the bottom of your screen or either a locked padlock icon (Internet Explorer). This will appear on any of the Gift Rush website pages where you are entering personal information (such as your address details) - non of our other web pages will transmit information about you.
Additional Encryption - we go further to protect you
We also provide additional encryption techniques in the shopping basket and account areas to shield sensitive data from malicious hackers, key-log viruses or prying eyes.
The banking and card services are Verisign certified or Thawte certified. This certificate acts as a digital ID card and proves they are who we say they are. To obtain this certificate they have had to prove their identity, location and authenticity.
