Credit Card Security
We take online security extremely seriously and have taken several steps to ensure that your payment information is processed confidentially and accurately.
The final stages of the shopping process use secure servers, where information is protected by the industry standard encryption technology Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). This encryption makes it virtually impossible for unauthorised parties to read any information that you send us.
When your order is processed your encrypted credit card number is removed from the web server. This means that there is no way that someone can obtain your credit card number from Thunder Road so you can order with confidence.
ADDITIONALLY, WE WILL NOT SHIP TO ANY ADDRESS OTHER THAN THAT TO WHICH THE CREDIT CARD IS REGISTERED.
Thunder Road Motorcycles Ltd is committed to protecting your privacy. When you make an online order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, credit card billing address, delivery address, credit or debit card number and associated details. This allows us to process and fulfil your orders and to notify you about your order status. We will also require a contact telephone number in case we need to contact you, this number may be given to our couriers in order to help with the delivery of your goods. You have trusted us by giving us these details and we promise not to use these details for any other reason other than processing your order or informing you about the products and services of Thunder Road Motorcycles Ltd. Apart from reputable banking and distribution institutions who handle our credit and debit card transactions and order fulfilment, required to process your orders efficiently, your details will not be passed to any other third parties.
