SSL Encrypted Credit Card Transactions

The security and privacy of your personal information is of great importance to us. All E-Commerce transactions and the Shopping Cart are hosted by Yahoo.

Yahoo! is committed to secure shopping and credit card transactions by the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 256-Bit encryption. This encryption protects your data from tampering and eavesdropping while it is being transmitted between you and the Yahoo! and PayPal Credit Card servers. When you enter your credit card number into the order form, it is transmitted across the Internet in a scrambled form, then decoded when it gets to the Yahoo or PayPal secure servers.

The following is a description of steps Yahoo! takes to protect your information from misuse when ordering through a Yahoo! Store.

Secure Socket Layer (SSL): Yahoo! Store uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of information, such as financial services information or payment information. An icon resembling a padlock is displayed on the bottom of most browsers window during SSL transactions that involve credit cards and other forms of payment. Any time a Yahoo! Store asks for a credit card number during checkout for payment, it will be SSL encrypted. The information you provide will be stored securely on our servers. 

CISP Compliance: Yahoo! Merchant Solutions is certified CISP-compliant. Created by Visa and MasterCard, the Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) outlines a standard for security procedures for merchants and service providers that store, process, or transmit cardholder data.
