I'm seeing firewall errors. What does this mean?

A firewall is a piece of software or hardware that helps screen-out hackers and viruses that try to reach your computer via the internet. Using a firewall is the most effective and important first step to help protect your computer.

To allow content through your firewall, you would create an exception to enable a particular programme to send information back and forth through your firewall - another term is called unblocking. If you create an exception, the "door" is open only when needed for a particular communication.

To help decrease your security risk:
- Only create exceptions for sites that you know.

After I gave my credit card details and pressed confirm the page cleared and a message box popped up with the message "The page contains both secure and non secure items, do you want to display the non secure items." Why?

This message appears when a secure page includes non-secure items. For example, the whole page is secure because we are being safe with your personal data & your browser has recognised that a security certificate is in place; however, things like images and logos from our site that are pulled in, are not registered with our security certificate making them a "non-secure" item.
