Rapidonline.com takes the privacy and security of our customers very seriously.
Our systems conform to current PCI (Payment Card Industry) Legislation regarding the protection of cardholders data and personal information. If you have any concerns that Rapid is putting your privacy and security at risk, please contact us.
When registering for the first time or changing your log-in details, please try to make your password as secure and unique as possible. The minimum requirement of any password is that it must contain at least 8 characters before our system will accept it. It is advisable to use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols (such as ! and @). Your password will be assessed for its strength by an on-screen display. A combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols will be classed as a ‘strong’ password; a password of just lower case letters will be ‘weak’.
Try to make the password different to your name, pets name or anything that can be associated to you to avoid someone guessing what it could be. You should never tell anyone your password or write it down.
Creating different passwords for different accounts also minimises the risk of someone being able to access your accounts and personal information. When using a public computer or a shared access computer always log-out of any online accounts.
