Is it safe to purchase something through your website?
Security is extremely important to us here at Gearaholic so we have numerous security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you. Financial information such as credit card numbers and expiration dates are used only to take payment for the products you are purchasing. This information is submitted online directly to the secure payment gateway (supplied by PayPal.com) and is never seen or stored by Volcan.
Our payment gateway providers operate under the following policies:
- Transaction security - All transaction information passed between the Gearaholic website and the PayPal systems is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No card-holder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to Volcan from PayPal are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing you pass to the PayPal servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information. PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or login to the site, the server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
- Encryption and Data Storage - Once on the PayPal systems, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government. The encryption keys are held on state-of-the-art, tamper proof systems in the same family as those used to secure VeriSign's Global Root certificate, making them all but impossible to extract. The data we hold is extremely secure and we are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so.
- Links to banks - PayPal have multiple private links into the banking network that are completely separate from the Internet and which do not cross any publicly accessible networks. Any card-holder information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is secure and cannot be tampered with.
