When you book online with Simple, your web browser connects with the website through SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) which ensures the security of your credit card details and other personal data. SSL is an industry-standard way to send personal data securely over the Internet.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of data via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
