Women’s Aid in Luton has security measures in place to provide protection against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Strong precautions are taken to protect the information of the users of our site.

Your information is encrypted and is protected utilizing the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption software. While on a secure page, most web browsers will indicate the encrypted nature of your data in some readily identifiable fashion (e.g., the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becoming locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’).

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Women’s Aid in Luton cannot warrant or ensure the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

If you have any questions about the security at our Site, you can send an e-mail to or telephone us at 01582 876636
