Kapiti Kritters takes responsible steps to protect the personal information of our customers against unauthorized access by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology; so that each time Kapiti Kritters collects any personal information your details are encrypted and securely communicated to us, protecting them from malicious threats. These comprehensive security measures have been carefully implemented and subjected to rigorous independent testing - providing our shoppers with a secure environment in which they can browse and shop safely.

Access controls are in place to protect any customer information stored on our servers and systems, ensuring that these details are only accessible by authorised personnel for authorised reasons. We make no warranty in respect of the strength or effectiveness of that encryption and accept no responsibility for events arising from unauthorised access of the information you provide.

To check the security of your connection, you can check the URL line of your browser; if the connection is secure the site address will read 'https'. Alternatively, check the bottom of your browser window after accessing the server - if you see a closed lock or unbroken key, SSL is active.
