Is it safe to puchase something through your website?
Security is extremely important to us here at OverBoard so we have numerous security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you.Financial information such as credit card numbers and expiration dates are used only to take payment for the products you are purchasing. This information is submitted online directly to the secure payment gateway (supplied by eWay or PayPal.com) and is never seen or stored by OverBoard.

Our payment gateway providers operate under the following policies:

  • Transaction security - All transaction information passed between the OverBoard website and the eWay / PayPal systems is encrypted using 256-bit SSL certificates. No card-holder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to OverBoard from eWay or PayPal are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing you pass to the eWay or PayPal servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information. PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 256-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or login to the site, the server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.

  • Encryption and Data Storage - Once on the eWay or PayPal systems, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government. The encryption keys are held on state-of-the-art, tamper proof systems in the same family as those used to secure VeriSign's Global Root certificate, making them all but impossible to extract. The data we hold is extremely secure and we are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so.

  • Links to banks - eWay and PayPal have multiple private links into the banking network that are completely separate from the Internet and which do not cross any publicly accessible networks. Any card-holder information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is secure and cannot be tampered with.

Ingress Protection (IP) and what it means

The IP Code, or Ingress Protection Rating consists of the letters IP followed by two digits and an optional letter. As defined in international standard IEC 60529, it classifies the degrees of protection provided against the intrusion of solid objects, dust, and water. The standard aims to provide a user with more detailed information rather than vague marketing terms such as waterproof.

How do our products seal?
We have captured a small tribe of aliens from the planet Sprog who sit inside the unit and suck hard. Actually that will be Release Three. As of now find links to the sealing demos below:

How tough are the materials?
Bloody tough. If in doubt ask the strong men who wept when putting them through the British Standards Testing programme. To be honest we didn't actually see them cry but like to believe they sobbed a little in a quiet corner.

What quality control is involved with your products?
The last thing we want is for our products to let anyone down. Our business depends on it and so do our own precious electronics - because we use them ourselves. That's why every production line and every batch is thoroughly tested not just in a lab, but out in the real world.
