We use Stripe as our payment merchant gateway processor. Stripe has been audited by a PCI certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry, which means it has to undergo an annual compliance report and routine security scans and tests.
All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons can obtain plaintext card numbers but can request that cards are sent to a service provider on a static allow list. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in a separate hosting environment and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, and so on).
We may accept the following payment methods on our Site:
