|Your security||^ Top|
SoundXtra is responsible for ensuring that your credit card and other personal data is kept secure.
- When it is submitted to our servers.
- During the credit card transaction authorisation process
- After the transaction when, for audit and refund purposes, it must be stored for a period of time.
Securing your personal information when you submit it to us
SoundXtra uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect communication between your web browser and our web servers when you are submitting personal information.
SSL encrypts the data sent by you to us. SSL achieves this with a 40-bit SSL key containing many billions of times more combinations than the 4-digit PIN number usually used to protect a credit or debit card. This means that, even if your data were to be intercepted, it is extremely difficult to decode. This key is used just once and is discarded when your transaction is complete.
SSL also enables you to automatically establish the authenticity of the site and confirm the identity of the company you are dealing with. This is achieved using a server certificate awarded by an independent Certification Authority (CA). SoundXtra servers use Verisign certificates awarded by BT Trustwise.
Securing the card authorisation process
When SoundXtra submits your card data to its banking partners for authorisation SoundXtra encrypts it with even stronger encryption than 40-bit SSL and communicates it to the bank via private, secure networks rather than the public internet. Unlike a retail or mail order environment this process is entirely automated and, therefore, no human even sees your card data.
Securing your data after the transaction
In order to comply with Credit Card Merchant rules, for audit purposes and to facilitate refunds and returns SoundXtra needs to store transactional information after the transaction is complete. SoundXtra does not store historic transactional records on web servers, but on protected, remote systems that are not connected to the public internet. This is to prevent unauthorised or malicious access to credit card information or other personal data. Better still, card numbers are stored in data sets that are separate from those holding the names of their owners.
