Many internet users are concerned about security on the web - below are answers to few questions we are commonly asked:
What is the Card Security Number? Also known as a CV2 number, this is a special 3 digit number that appears on the far right side of the signature strip on your card. This number is unique to each card, and gives you extra protection against fraud. Note: with American Express, the card security number is 4 digits long and is printed on the front of the card.
Do you check for fraudulent cards? - When we receive your Credit Card details, an on-line check of your Credit Card is conducted with their Acquiring bankers. This process ensures the number you entered actually corresponds to a real credit card number and is not a bogus card. The CyberSource system also checks various "Hot Card lists" to ensure that no fraudulent use is being made of any Credit Card. This on-line verification of your details is carried out over a secure line to the bank. Credit Card data is, at no time, sent over the Internet using the validation process. We also carry out random security checks on cards to ensure we help prevent fraud - please note that we do not intend any personal slight if your card is chosen for a random check.
Who are CyberSource? - F1 Store™ at Formula1.com has chosen CyberSource as a partner for its secure server software. They are a leading payment system provider to online businesses. For further information about CyberSource please visit their web site at cybersource.com.
Is shopping with the F1 Store™ at Formula1.com safe? - Communication between you, us and CyberSource is encrypted using the SSL mechanism built into your browser. This ensures that even if someone were able to monitor the traffic between you and the CyberSource server, they would not be able to read it. Encryption is used on all pages within the buying process, making shopping on the site at Formula1.com as safe as possible
How do we protect the Buyers Data? - The CyberSource software sits behind a corporate firewall. Access to this machine is strictly controlled, preventing unauthorized access to your personal data. Once you have passed your Credit Card details to Formula1.com, they are stored on the CyberSource server in an encrypted format.
Is the transaction Real-Time? - All Credit Card transactions are completed in real-time. After you have confirmed your purchase, we make an immediate connection to NatWest Bank to verify the card and amount, so that authorization is given before we complete the order.Payment is taken at time of order. Pre-order items will also be charged at time of order. All shirts with customisation will be fully charged once you have confirmed your purchase
Do I have any Legal Protection? - You are protected by the normal laws of England, in particular The Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994 (c. 35) and the Consumer Protection Act 1987 (c.43)
Safe shopping is important to everyone and we have gone to great lengths to make sure your details remain safe. When you start the order process you can be sure that every step of the way is 100% secure.
We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions below, which you may find useful. If you have any concerns about the security of our site, or if you have any further queries, please contact Customer Services.
How Secure are You? - As soon as you enter the order process, every bit of information that is transferred between you and us is encrypted using powerful encryption algorhythms. So even if someone could intercept the data over the internet, there is not a thing they could do with it. Your details are safer with Internet shopping that with traditional mail or telephone shopping!
How can I tell if the web site is a secure one? - It is easy to determine if your connection is secure; on your browser you will notice a picture of a small padlock - this normally appears right at the bottom of the screen. Sometimes this padlock will not appear, even though you are secure - to double check this, you can right click on the page and select 'properties' or 'view frame info' from the list which will tell you whether you are secure or not. Also look out for the sign of a secure web page, which can be identified by the URL (the web site address). A standard page will begin with 'http://'. A secure web page will begin with the URL 'https://' denoting that the merchant is using a secure server for the transaction of data.
How does Encryption work? - All credit card details are encrypted using VeriSign 40bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Software. When you establish a secure connection, the downloaded web site sends a digital certificate to your web browser. When the certificate arrives, it contains a public key, which functions as a one-way encryption device. The browser then uses this key to scramble your personal data (Credit Card Information) before sending it over the Internet. Information encrypted with the public key cannot be decrypted without the corresponding private key, which only the merchant has. Without this exclusive, private key, your personal information cannot be read.
What else can I do to ensure my details remain safe? - The second way to ensure you have a secure connection is to look for either the VeriSign logo or RSA Data Security logo and only purchase from merchants you know and trust. Here again, the digital certificate is important. In addition to encrypting the data you send over the Internet, the certificate can be used to confirm and authenticate the identity of a web site's owner (in this case, the merchant). Because digital certificates act as electronic signatures they cannot be forged, you can be certain the connection is secure if either RSA DATA SECURITY INC. or VeriSign Inc has issued the certificate.
Who are VeriSign? - VeriSign, Inc. is the leading provider of digital authentication services and products for electronic commerce and other forms of secure communications. For more information on VeriSign please visit their web site at http://www.verisign.com.
