6.1 Safe and secure. Transacting with us electronically (including transacting and using your credit card on our website) is safe and secure. It is much the same as transacting in person face-to-face.
6.2 Payment processing. We do not get involved in any credit card transactions directly. All credit card transactions are handled or acquired for us via Virtual Card Services who are the approved payment gateway for our bankers, Standard Bank. No credit card details are stored on our website. Virtual Card Services uses the strictest form of encryption, namely Secure Socket Layer 3 (SSL3). You may go to http://website.vcs.co.za/customer-info/general-security/ to view their security certificate and security policy.]
6.3 Payment verification. A Certificate Authority (or CA) http://www.thawte.com/ checks, verifies, and certifies our service provider’s company registration documents and domains to ensure that nobody can impersonate them to obtain your payment Information.
6.4 Payment security. All payers’ credit card details are secured by secure sockets layer (“SSL”) encryption whilst in transmission and reinforced through various encryption processes in order to provide protection for all sensitive payment information. We do not access any of the credit card details. These are encrypted and stored in our secure Payment Card Industry (“PCI”) environment. When required for purposes of a transaction between you, as a merchant, and a payer, we retrieve and forward encrypted credit card details to you. You never access or store any payer’s credit card details.
6.5 Secure URL. Once you begin the checkout process you will notice that the site URL will change from “http” to” https” and a small padlock will appear at the bottom of your screen. This is indicative of a secure Internet transaction.
6.6 Verification programs. We currently support the Verified by Visa program https://usa.visa.com/personal/security/vbv/index.html and the MasterCard SecureCode http://www.mastercard.com/us/personal/en/cardholderservices/securecode/index.html. We will ask you to enter your Verified by Visa password or MasterCard SecureCode when you use your Visa or MasterCard credit card as payment for an order.
7.1 Secure URL. You must only log in to your account from a page that begins with: https://
7.2 No confirmation through links. We will never ask you to confirm your username and password or other sensitive information by clicking on any links in an email other than the email link we send you at registration to verify your email address. Be aware of “phishing” attacks where criminals attempt to obtain your sensitive information by sending you an email, masquerading as an email from us, asking you to access your account or verify information via links in the email, or diverting you to a fake AfriCanyon website. Please report any suspected phishing attacks to us immediately to prevent any harm to you or other users.
