Although this site does not have any Shopping Carts, here is some general information.
People are often worried about privacy on the internet, as well as the safety of their credit card details when buying any products or services via websites.
The truth is that there are many shady and crooked people around, but people’s credit cards are more often fraudulently used when giving your credit card details when making a hotel reservation, than when shopping on the internet.
Websites with no contactable information – were the company do not supply contactable phone numbers or physical addresses must be viewed with great skepticism.
Most responsible merchant acquiring companies also insist that their clients (the sellers) are PCI DSS compliant, as protection for buyers.
When viewing web pages these pages are "served" (presented) to you via a "non-secure" server, which is fine when simply browsing around.
Secure servers protect your information by encrypting the information when it is filled in by the client and the transaction is done. Encryption methods vary, but the most used way is to use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and in our case – our SSL secured shopping cart uses a 256 bit encryption.
When you are on a secure website – where you input actual payment information – a lock symbol must also display in the browser.
CVV is an additional anti-fraud security feature to help verify that you are in possession of the credit card when placing an order.
