MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover joined forces and formed the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) to help in the fight against system break-ins that result in compromised card holder account information. This alliance is recognized by all payment card brands.
Merchants who accept any of these cards must participate in this program. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements designed to ensure that ALL companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.
PCI applies to ALL organizations or merchants, regardless of size or number of transactions, that accepts, transmits or stores any cardholder data.
We, at Village Eye Care, treat your credit card information with the highest level of security. Your authorization is processed over a secured, land line, or the highest level encrypted wireless. In addition, we do NOT store ANY credit card information whatsoever. Period.
We have gone through a PCI compliant assessment with Elavon, a leader of provider merchant services and Trustwave, a top provider of data security and compliance services.
