We use the industry leading internet payment company Worldpay to protect your card details and protect us from fraud. The following security systems are used.
All transaction information passed between merchant sites and the Worldpay is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to your servers from Worldpay are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing you pass to the Worldpay servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
Encryption and Data Storage
All sensitive data is secured on Worldpay using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government. The encryption keys are held on state-of-the-art, tamper proof systems in the same family as those used to secure VeriSign's Global Root certificate, making them all but impossible to extract. The data we hold is extremely secure and we are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so.
Links to banks
Worldpay has multiple private links into the banking network that arecompletely separate from the Internet and which do not cross anypublicly accessible networks. Any cardholder information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is secure and cannot be tampered with.
No individuals within our company are able to decrypt transaction information or cardholder data. Our systems only allow access to our most senior staff and only in extenuating circumstances (such as investigations of Card Fraud by the Police). Your transaction information and customer card information is secure even form our own employees because our systems never display the full card numbers, even on administration screens.
Email Addresses/Postal Addresses/Personal Data
We will not sell or pass on your personal details to any other company or individual. We will not send you marketing emails unless you specifically sign up to receive our newsletter (where available). We will only contact you using the details you have provided when it is necessary to do so to process or facilitate your order.
We do not pass your personal information on to third parties. All transactions that you initiate with The Gamers' Emporium on this web site are confidential. Your name will not be added to any third party mailing lists.
