Secure Online Ordering
Secure Online Ordering
At Whisky-Online.com we take the protection of your identity and the privacy of your card details very seriously. All our login, account and checkout pages are hosted on a secure server and protected by a GeoTrust QuickSSL Certificate. This means that your name & address details are encrypted as they are sent to us. This means your details are safe and cannot be intercepted by a third party. When you get to the checkout you will notice the presence of a padlock in the address bar of your browser. The padlock is a universal way of letting you know that the site you are on is safe and your details will be kept secure.
We have introduced a feature called 3D Secure. 3D Secure is the technology behind Verified by Visa (VbV) and MasterCard SecureCode (MSC), the fraud screening initiative launched by the card schemes to provide a more secure method for authenticating the cardholder at the time of the transaction. When you place an order through our website, you will be asked to register for Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode with your issuing bank if you have not already done so. Once registered, you will be presented with a page from your issuing bank at the checkout stage to request that you enter a password. The bank will verify the password and the transaction will continue as normal. You only need to register once for 3D Secure - the next time you place an order with any website using the 3D Secure technology you will be prompted to enter 3 randomly chosen digits from your password. Once you are registered with 3D Secure it will be even harder for someone to fraudulently use your card details online.
Shopper Transaction Security
Security is probably one of the most significant concerns for both the shopper and us the retailer during an online transaction. In reality an online transaction is probably more secure than a card transaction in a shop or conducted over the telephone or by fax, as the information transmitted online is highly encrypted using complicated logarithm combinations. The WorldPay payment system uses a combination of both established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data. Furthermore, our public web servers are certified by Thawte, a public Certificate Authority, ensuring that both the shopper and retailer can have confidence that nobody can impersonate WorldPay to obtain confidential information.
The transfer of the purchase details from whisky-online to WorldPay are encapsulated using encrypted and digitally-signed protocol.
Data storage on WorldPay systems, and the communication between WorldPay and the worldwide banking networks, is regularly audited by the banking authorities to ensure a secure transaction environment. We also ensure that we stay up-to-date with the latest versions of any third-party code we use, and continually review our own proprietary code.
