The actual card number is stored at this secure gateway, not our website, and the gateway can only be accessed through https. The Beanstream Payment Gateway not only offers security and storage of your credit card data and transaction information, but also protects this data 24/7 in a secure "virtual vault". The Beanstream Payment Gateway is Visa CISP, MasterCard SDP, and PCI DSS compliant and certified, all of which are global standards to ensure the secure storage and protection of cardholder data by merchants, service providers and payment processors

Adhering to global standard requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our ecommerce site and its service providers.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers. 

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
