How We Protect Your Data
For your security, Body Index does not save your card details and you will be requested to enter your card number each time you use our checkout. When you enter your payment information on our payment page, your card provider may require extra authentication (known as 3-D authentication) and they will provide a page for you to enter the password associated with your card. This page is served straight from the card issuer and we do not see this data. To complete the transaction in this instance we will temporarily store your card in an encrypted database table for the time it takes to complete the authentication. This is so we can pass the details to the authorisation company once 3-D authentication is complete.
Payment authorisation services are provided by Paypal. Card information is NOT sent back to Body Index. Paypal simply return to us a set of data that describes whether the transaction was successful or not and supportive data.
