None of our customers has reported fraudulent use of a credit or debit card as a result of purchases made with us. We are so confident about the transaction security we offer on our site that we back every purchase with a security guarantee.

Our secure website encrypts your potentially sensitive personal information (including credit or debit card number, name and address) to and from the website.

In the event of unauthorised use of your credit or debit card, most banks and card issuers either cover all the charges or may limit your liability to just £50.00. If your bank or card issuer holds you liable, Swim England will cover your liability up to £50.00 provided that the unauthorised use of your credit or debit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at Swim England Awards while using the secure server.

Please note:

  • This guarantee covers a maximum liability of £50.00
  • In the event of unauthorised use of your credit or debit card, you must notify your card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures
  • Your credit card number is not stored on our server or database, so even in the unlikely event that our security was ever breached your credit card number would not be compromised.
  • We do not currently sell or rent our list of customers.
