Always look out for the small padlock icon and the text “https://” before the website address. This means that the website you are visiting has an up to date security certificate.
Clicking on the small padlock icon will generally provide a window with more information. Clicking further within the window will provide details about the security certificate; who it is issued by, and to whom; and when it will expire, etc.
Payment Security is the most vital part of any online business. It’s very important for our customers to know that their card details are secure.
Your credit card information is not stored on our website. When you enter credit card information on our website, it is sent securely (by means of encryption) directly to a ‘Payment Gateway’ for processing.
Even although you may opt to ‘retain your card’ for future purchases, only the last four digits of the card are retained. The full card number, name and start and expiry dates are stored by the Payment Gateway and not on our website.
Note also that the three digit CVC number (on the back of your card) is not stored anywhere and you will always require to enter it for every purchase whether you have opted to retain card details or not.
The Payment Gateway used by Centratec is ‘Stripe‘.
