Your communication with our processing bank is carried out in accordance with the transmission and security protocols set and certified by the processing bank themselves.

Ensuring the security of cardholder data is one of the main priorities of the online payment sector. Therefore, in 2004, Visa and MasterCard created the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), specifying a series of requirements and procedures aimed at ensuring that cardholders sensitive data remains secure at all times. Our processing bank is certified as AIS, SDP and PCI-DSS compliant.
