Hamster is also Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant, the highest recognized standard in the credit card industry, developed by credit card corporations like VISA. Compliance to this standard means that we must apply the best business practices of the security industry and subject our servers to monthly vulnerability controls.
All credit card information is encrypted when the order is processed. We do not keep the credit card numbers in our servers. We use secure servers protected by the strongest firewalls currently available on the market. Physical access to these severs is limited and controlled.
All employees that have access to or that are involved in processing your personal information are bound by a confidentiality clause.
All these controls and procedures that are in place guaranty that your on-line shopping experience is secure. In reality, it is probably more secure to buy on-line at hamster.ca than in a restaurant or gas station.
