To guarantee the privacy of the information provided by you through our website and in the software used by us, we use various forms of security.

In addition, all our systems are protected by a firewall in order to prevent unauthorised access.
What is SSL?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and is the most commonly used method for carrying out secured electronic transactions via the internet. SSL is used for encrypting connections between a web browser and an email client or a web server. This technology is frequently used for credit card payments. SSL means that each message between you and us is encrypted, preventing third parties from reading this message. All browsers support SSL and indicate when the protection is enabled, often by means of a locked padlock.
Payment via credit card
Credit card payments made through our website are often processed via the comprehensive fraud module of Ogone Payment Services. This means that the 3D secure protocol applies. For this, the credit card user, in addition to card number, cardholder name, expiry date and CVC code, also needs to enter an extra password for verification purposes. Ogone is one of the major processors of internet payments. Ogone makes use of security according to the Secure Socket Layer protocol, as part of which your credit card details are encrypted prior to being sent to the credit card company. These data cannot be intercepted by third parties. Also, all messages sent to us by Ogone are encrypted. Your credit card details are stored in the very well protected computers of Ogone Payment Services. Moreover, when you make your payment through the website, your credit card details will not be disclosed to us. Therefore, you can make use of this payment method without any risk.
More about 3D Secure
3D-Secure makes payment via the internet even more secure. The 3D-Secure technology was developed by Visa and MasterCard. 3D-Secure forms an additional step when placing your order, aimed at increasing your security. You are protected against the misuse of your credit card number because prior to payment you first confirm your identity.
How does 3D Secure work?
Your card is not activated for 3D Secure by default. Prior to payment of your order you may be prompted to activate 3D Secure on your card. After this, for each online verification of your credit card you will be asked for a digital signature. Subsequently, this code is immediately verified by your bank. There are a number of variants of the digital signature, depending on your bank. It may be a password you personally have selected, a password provided by your bank, or another option is being asked for a digital signature by means of a digipas or random reader.
