Security was our most important design consideration.
Like all credible e–commerce sites sensitive credit
card information is always collected on and transmitted
to SSL encrypted
pages. However, we go beyond that.
Credit card processing is done by
linking our site to
the secure servers at a payment gateway
a leading provider of Internet Protocol
(IP) based payment
gateway services since 1996. The gateway
servers receive the credit card information we send, process
and then send us back the transaction approval
So all we do with a credit card number is transmit
the number securely to the gateway and then discard
it. We designed our system to ensure that
we never have to store credit card numbers on
our servers. Amplify, the
event administrator, and any potential hacker have no
access to a registrant's credit card number.
