3. SECURITY OF PAYMENTS
Les Jardins de Gaïa has opted for the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption process, which is the current benchmark for data encryption on the Internet. As a result, the banking information you provide is encrypted on your own computer and does not circulate freely on the Internet
The number of your credit card is then entered on a secure page hosted by the bank and is not known to Les Jardins de Gaïa
To ensure payments are secure, Les Jardins de Gaïa uses the services of PCI-DSS certified providers, which ensures the absolute confidentiality of the information we hold.
In addition, Les Jardins de Gaïa uses the 3D-Secure security standard, which relies on the verification of information known only by the credit card holder (similar to the 4-digit code) and which will be requested by his bank during transactions on the web.
