Yes.

When you enter our secure order form you will see a small yellow padlock in your web browser. This will either appear in the address bar at the top, or near the bottom right of the screen.

This confirms that your connection to our server is secured, and that your personal details are protected by strong encryption software. When you click the “Place Order” button, all the data on the order form (name, address, credit card number, etc) is encrypted BEFORE it is transmitted. When it arrives at Facsimile Editions, in encrypted form, it can only be decoded and read by authorised personnel. It is extremely safe, and certainly much safer than giving the numbers over an open telephone line.

You might like to see part of a typical encoded order containing personal data and credit card numbers – it’s worse than the most devilish Sudoku puzzle and any eavesdropping hacker will be unable to make sense of it:
