At Digital Age Technologies we take security issues very seriously. Our systems
have been designed to accommodate the latest security standards available today
as endorsed by the financial and banking institutions of the world. Our
procedures for collecting payments from cardholders are recognised and proven
to be the best that technology can offer.
Our security implementation, which uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology
extensively, provides a reliable mechanism for the secure transport of
sensitive data across the Internet. All data transmitted between the merchant
and ourselves (and the merchant’s customers) is encrypted to ensure that no
personal and/or private data can be intercepted en route. Inherent in SSL is
the ability to perform authentication and verification of the identities of all
parties including merchants, banks, acquiring institutions, and others involved
in the processing of an on-line payment transaction. This means that there are
no unknown or untrusted agents involved at any stage.
Additionally we conform to the SET™ (Secure Electronic Transaction)
specification as administered by SET Secure Electronic Transaction LLC
(www.setco.org). This provides additional encryption of the transmitted data
and also provides the framework around which every payment transaction
revolves. SET is responsible for the dispersing of data to each party involved
in the transaction, and it makes sure that only relevant data reaches the
appropriate end-point. So no party involved in a SET transaction is able to see
or use all the pieces of data that is circulating. As an example, during a
purchase, credit card details can only be seen by the cardholder and the
acquiring institution (ex VISA or MasterCard). No one else has access to that
information, including us.
The subject of security and its related issues is a vast topic, and we hope to
bring a collection of this information to you in the pages below. We hope that
this will provide our clients and general viewers with an opportunity to make
themselves aware of some of the key components regarding safe on-line trading
via the Internet. These pages will be a constant “work in progress” as new
standards and applications emerge that make the Internet a safer place. We will
try to provide as much information as possible about these changes, and also
keep you up to date with DAT’s implementation of new security technologies.
