How do I know it is safe to give you my credit card details?

We use the latest SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology from GoDaddy to protect our website and any information retrieved by it.

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complex, but it's really not. SSL Certificates validate your websites identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, our site. This keeps thieves from spying on any exchange between us and you.
