Peace of Mind
One of the main worries - and rightly so - of any shopper using an online shop is: "Is it safe to send my card details across the internet?" Our payment processing systems use digital signatures and strong encryption to ensure that all sensitive information is protected throughout the payment process.
A digital signature is a method of positively identifying the sender of a message sent in digital form. Just like a signature on a written document, it proves that the message is authentic (but unlike a written signature, it cannot be forged by someone else). A valid digital signature also confirms that the message has not been altered in any way on its journey between the sender and receiver.
We use digital signatures throughout the system to ensure that any transaction arriving at a payment gateway has come from a merchant that we can identify, and that any information passed back to the merchant is from our payment gateway. Digital signatures are also used for communications within our payment system. In the event that a merchant's digital signature becomes a security risk (for example, if their server is stolen), the appropriate signature will be immediately revoked and will no longer function within our system.
Encryption is vital when sensitive information is sent across a publicly-accessible network like the internet. Many web browsers, including Internet Explorer and Firefox, can use SSL encryption, which encrypts data with a industry standard security key. This level of encryption is used by the secure servers which host the payment pages for users of our service, and it greatly enhances the integrity of the payment process.
