Is My Payment Information Safe on Your Website?
Is my payment information safe on your website?
Your online safety is important to us.
Our website is powered by e-commerce platform, Shopify and utilizes two major payment gateways for our store; Shopify Payments and Pay Pal.
As of 2016, PayPal and all online stores powered by Shopify, have invested in or upgraded, their SSL encryption for a safer, more secure online shopping experience.
SSL encryption ensures that none of your sensitive personal or payment data will be intercepted as it is passed over online networks.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, our payment gateways store your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
Look for security certificates and other indications of SSL security on our site, including security badges, an image of a 'padlock' on the search bar of your computer or phone when you're logged into our site, and an added ’s’ ( which stands for secure) to the ‘http’ part of our domain name address. As you will see, we are at https://www.picadoodesign.com.
