Here at emctiles we use Sage Pay as our payment security service provider to process our online transactions. It is our top priority to ensure that transaction data is kept secure at all times.
All transaction information is passed between our checkout and the Sage Pay System is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing you pass to emctiles through the to Sage Pay servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
Encryption and Data Storage
Sage Pay collect card details via a 128-bit SSL secured payment page. We request card number, expiry dates, cardholder name and address and security code value. This information is then further encrypted to be held against the transaction details on our system before being sent to the UK acquiring banks for authorisation (over secure, offline channels). They don't store the security code (in line with Visa requirements) but they do store the card number (only in an encrypted format that none of their staff have access to).
Sage Pay is also audited annually under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) and is a fully approved Level 1 payment services provider, which is the highest level of compliance.
