Credit Card Data Security
We take every precautions to protect your information. First off, no employee of PromoVentures, or MakitaGear Inc., will ever have access to your full credit card number.
The personnel that manage and support this WebStore only ever have access to the last 4 digits of your credit card number. We never store full credit card numbers in any of the databases or on any of the web servers that power this or any of our WebStore systems. Read below to understand how your sensitive credit card data is further protected.
The secure checkout pages of this WebStore will encrypt your credit card data and billing information for every order using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology provided by GEOtrust.com. This provides 128-bit encryption, which is the current standard of encryption for all e-commerce web sites.
The encrypted data gets sent directly from the WebStore to one of the Web's most recognized and trusted Payment Gateways, Authorize.net. It is their software that connects to the world's banking networks to deliver instant credit decisions and facilitate the transfer of funds from bank to bank. The data never actually comes to PromoVentures or MakitaGear. We only get notification of the approval (or denail) of credit for that transaction along with a refefence which includes the last 4 digits of the card that was used.
The system is setup this way in order to conform with PCI-DSS or Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.
Through the Control Panel that Authorize.net provides to us, we can view all of the WebStore transactions and process credits and/or adjustments to a transaction. We only have access the last 4 digits of your credit card number for reference purposes.
