At Cino, we are deeply committed to ensuring the highest level of protection for your card information. To achieve this, we have established a partnership with Checkout.com, a Payment Card Industry (PCI) certified payment processor. This collaboration is key to our strategy of providing a secure and trustworthy payment environment, whether you're using a credit or debit card.
Direct and Secure Transmission to Checkout.com: When entering your card details in our app, they are sent directly to Checkout.com via a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connection. SSL is a robust security technology that encrypts data during transmission, making it unreadable to anyone other than the intended recipient, Checkout.com. This means that Cino never sees or stores your card details, significantly minimizing the risk of your sensitive information being exposed or compromised.
Tokenization Process with Checkout.com: After your card details are securely transmitted, Checkout.com processes this information in line with PCI compliance standards. Instead of Cino storing your actual card details, Checkout.com generates a unique token that is sent back to Cino. This token acts as a stand-in for your card details in our systems, enabling transactions and billing processes without exposing your real card information. The advantage of tokenization is its security feature; the token is useless if intercepted, as it cannot be reverse-engineered to uncover your card details.
Benefits of This Approach:
- Enhanced Data Security: The SSL transmission directly to Checkout.com ensures that Cino does not access your actual card information, greatly enhancing the security of your data.
- Lowered Risk of Data Breach: With Cino storing only a token and not the real card details, the risk of sensitive data being exposed in the event of a breach is significantly reduced.
- Adherence to Industry Standards: This method is fully compliant with PCI standards, reflecting our commitment to maintaining the highest levels of security and trust in payment processing.
In conclusion, Cino's partnership with Checkout.com and our use of SSL for direct data transmission, followed by tokenization, provide a robust defense for your card information. This system not only secures your data but also builds a strong foundation of trust and reliability for all your transactions with us. If you have any questions or need further clarification, we are always here to assist you.
