That's a measure of how important the Internet is to businesses and customers and there's a real sense that the simplicity and convenience of online shopping is not being enjoyed for fears about this security. Our view is simple. We use universally recognised technology and as web security technology evolves so in turn AC Silver Unlimited will continue to develop itself in line with these trends.
