Online Payments

Your security our responsibility

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea takes Internet security extremely seriously.

All Online Payments transactions take place through secure networks using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). This technology encrypts all the information involved in a transaction, for example your credit card details, vehicle registration number or Council Tax account number, so that it is unrecognisable and safe.

Security indicators

If you look at your browser window you will see an unbroken key or lock which shows you the website area is secure.

Once you have completed this transaction we do not keep your credit card details on our servers.
