Here at Sneaker Science we take the security and privacy of our customers very seriously. To help us achieve this we only use the highest standards of payment transaction methods available on the Internet. We have incorporated a couple of different methods for paying, This is to give our customers the highest level of convenience for you to choose the payment method that best suits you.
Paying By Card?
If you are paying for your purchase by Credit/Debit card you will be receiving the highest level of security for your card available on the Internet as well as ease of use and convenience. The reason you will be receiving this high level of service is because we process all our card transactions using the services of Paypal Payments Pro. We accept VISA, VISA ELECTRON, VISA DEBIT and MASTERCARD. We also offer payment through Amazon Payments.
All transaction information passed between merchant sites and the payment gateway, it is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to your servers from the gateway are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing you pass to the Paypal Payments Pro or Amazon Payments servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
Encryption and Data Storage
Once on their 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 they hold is extremely secure and they are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so.
Links to banks
Paypal Payments Pro & Amazon Payments 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 cardholder information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is secure and cannot be tampered with.
No individuals within Sneaker Science are able to decrypt transaction information or cardholder data.
PayPal is a safer, easier way to pay and get paid online. The service allows anyone to pay in any way they prefer, including through credit cards, bank accounts and buyer credit or account balances, without sharing financial information.
