Credit Card Security

Your credit card security is of the utmost importance to us. All online transactions are processed externally by Stripe payments. They use PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry data) Level 1 compliant software which is the standard set by card processing companies and major banks. Your credit card numbers are not held in clear text on our or ANY web site and we never see or have access to them. Stripe Payments also use 3-D Secure which is an XML based protocol used as an added layer of security for online credit and debit card transactions. The 3-D Secure protocol was developed by Visa to improve the security of Internet payments and offered to customers as the Verified by Visa service. Services based on the protocol have also been adopted by MasterCard, under the name MasterCard SecureCod. If you have not registered your card with 3-D Secure you will simply be asked to create a password. Verified by Visa not only protects your card against unauthorized use, it also means you can have confidence that the online retailer you’re buying from has made your security a priority. You can find out more about 3-D Secure here.
