You are concerned about the security of your
personal information. There is now more security using your credit
card to purchase goods and services through the HPVerifone Secure
Electronic Web Payment System. This payment system keeps your
personal credit card information strictly between you and the bank.
The HPVerifone Secure Electronic Web Payment
System protects credit card information so it's not stored where
unauthorized use could occur. It is also safe from hackers, network
monitors and spies. Here's how your are protected. First, a website
must apply for and obtain a digital certificate. A digital
certificate indicates that the company is who they say they are.
Someone trying to do business under a false name will not be able to
obtain a digital certificate.
Using the digital certificate the company
can then accept credit card numbers from a secure area on their
website. This secure area is encrypted to prevent unauthorized use
of a credit card number while it is input on the site. When you
click on ENTER, the HPVerifone Secure Electronic Payment System
encrypts the card number and sends it to your bank. You will often
hear numbers referring to the strength of encryption. The higher the
number the safer the information. At this point 128 bit encryption
is the industry standard until we get to the S.E.T. standard.
For you the consumer, knowing that a major
chartered bank ( Royal Bank Of Canada), has certified
HPVerifone's eCommerce Solution, for transmitting credit card
transactions utilizing the HPVerifone payment system, is reassuring.
