Each page you view is encrypted before being
transmitted over the internet. Encryption makes
it very difficult for unauthorised people to view
information travelling between computers. It is
therefore very unlikely that anyone can read the
pages as they travel across the network.
The encryption is High-grade Encryption (RC4
128 bit). This is similar to the type of encryption
schemes used by banks and retailers for online
credit card transactions.
