Privacy & Legal Policies

Privacy Commitment

How Safe Are My Details?
  • We promise to take all reasonable steps to ensure that all personal information we collect, use or disclose is stored in a secure environment accessed only by authorised persons.
  • We promise to protect your personal and credit card information with the highest level of data privacy and security.
  • We understand that you’re concerned about the security and privacy of online transactions. Nowadays, there's so much coverage of online fraud and identity theft that we realise we have to earn your trust on a daily basis.
  • We hope this page will provide reassurance that your valuable data, such as credit card details, are protected from prying eyes. While Fosters Outdoor Power Equipment employs advanced technology to protect your data, users should be aware that there is a residual risk in transmitting any data electronically.  This risk is inherent in all internet dealings.


How do you secure my payments?
  • We employ state-of-the-art data encryption to ensure safe and secure transactions on our site.
  • Our payment area is secured using industry standard Secure Sockets Layer technology (SSL). You'll know when you enter this area because the small yellow padlock appears in the bottom right hand corner of your browser. The other indication is in the address bar. When you enter the secure area of the site, the background of the address bar will turn dark yellow. You'll also notice that http:// is replaced by https:// the 's' standing for 'Secure'.
  • Rest assured that your personal and private information remains secure and private in accordance with industry standards when trading with us.
How do I know you are a legitimate organisation?
  • Our SSL certificates are provided by a leading certificate authority, that only provides High Assurance Certificates. Apart from the highest level of data encryption, High Assurance certificates validate that a company is a legally accountable organisation with articles of incorporation.
  • To qualify to receive our SSL Certificate we had to validate ourselves in order to satisfy the authority that we are a legitimate business. We had to prove not only that we own this web domain, but also that we are a legally accountable company. We believe that only by seeking this level of validation can you have peace of mind when buying online.

Our High Assurance SSL Certificates confirm two essential factors:
1. That you have a secure SSL (encrypted) link with this website
2. That this website is a valid and legitimate organisation or an accountable legal entity
