Secure trading on the Internet is a major concern for most people today, particularly concerning credit card transactions.
A great deal of progress has been made in recent times in securing transactions on the Internet. In fact, most transmissions are likely to be more secure than terrestrial card transactions or those using phone or fax lines. Artistico Ltd in partnership with SecPay have taken the following steps to ensure security:
– Card details are taken through an on-line secure server system provided by SecPay.
– All transmissions of data are encrypted.
– Artistico Ltd never sees the card details, only SecPay
– All details, validity checks and transaction processes are carried out whilst you, the shopper, is still on-line.
– You, the customer, and Artistico Ltd both receive confirmation of the transaction.
