Terms & Conditions
a secure transaction processing facility, which is approved by the main
UK acquiring banks for the collecting and passing of card details
across the Internet. The security measures employed are to satisfy the
banks in ensuring that cardholder details are kept from prying eyes.
The statement below is the internal security requirements for credit card acquisition.
What is the level of security needed to accept card payments over the Internet?
Our minimum security requirements are as follows:
transactions containing card information should be transmitted over the
Internet in an encrypted form either using SSL (Secure Socket Layer)
protocol, currently with a minimum effective symmetric key length of 128
bits, or a protocol employing similar encryption algorithms and key
length which provide similar or greater strength to SSL. This measure
should be adopted not only when the transaction details are being passed
from the cardholder to the web server, but also from the web server to
the merchant if this takes place directly over the Internet.
servers involved in processing transactions containing card information
and originating from the Internet should not be exposed directly to the
Internet. These servers should be placed in a secure domain by means of
internal network partitioning with connectivity to the Internet
protected by firewall technology.
take security very seriously, which is why we have chosen to use online
credit card processing facilities provided by Datacash.
Datacash processing centre is securely linked to many processing banks
worldwide, who handle the credit card authorisations online and process
the transactions in real time. It is now known that Internet
transactions through systems such as Datacash are inherently more secure
than other methods of making purchases in 'cardholder not present'
situations such as telesales, or when giving a card to a waiter in a
online purchase from us will take place in real time, and we will never
see your credit card details. You can have confidence that our online
purchasing facilities are secure and safe to use.
