Security and confidentiality
1 - SECURITY OF TRANSACTIONS
Payment by credit card is ensured by mollie, recognized for its reliability in Internet transactions. The transaction between you and GymTed is fully encrypted (SSL) as shown by the symbols in the status bar of your browser during the payment phase.
The banking information you give, encrypted on your own computer, will never flow in plain language on the Internet. In addition, no credit card number is stored at GymTed.
3DSecure was invented to prevent fraudulent payments by credit card (stolen card numbers for example), in order to reduce fraud among merchants and secure customer payments. It verifies that the cardholder and the third party making an online payment are one and the same person, all in order to increase the security of online payments. This also has a legal impact, which we will develop below.
This system is called 'Verified by Visa' by Visa, and 'Securecode' by Mastercard. You will always have to register your numbers, expiry date and the visual cryptogram of your credit card. After registering this information, you will be redirected to your bank’s website, which will ask you for additional information.
Each bank is free to choose its means of authentication, among which (non-exhaustive list):
- a classic password (which can be changed)
- a key card system (paper sheet) that your bank has sent to you (naval battle type: enter the number in column 5, line 3).
- an electronic enclosure system (you enter a code displayed by an electronic enclosure)
- your date of birth
- a code sent by SMS at the time of online validation...
Once the information has been entered, you will return to the merchant’s payment site, which will confirm that your payment has been taken into account.
Please note that the additional information entered on your bank’s website is not at any time accessible to the merchant, who cannot therefore be hacked.
You can obtain your confirmation code through your banking institution, prior to the validation of your online orders. For any information concerning this procedure, we invite you to consult your bank agency, which will communicate to you in a personalized way the terms, and the necessary information.
You will also find information about 3D Secure on the website of your bank, or that of the issuer of your credit card:
