11. Security

Data security is of great importance to CARBON BLACK SYSTEM LTD and to protect your Data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure Data collected via this Website.

12. Credit Card Security

We take online security seriously and have taken several steps to ensure that your payment information is processed confidentially and accurately.

CARBON BLACK SYSTEM LTD uses the security and confidentiality built into the Stripe Payments. For web orders your credit card number is not retained within our system. For telephone orders your credit card number is held within the Stripe system to make future purchases easier, but CARBON BLACK SYSTEM LTD does not have access to all the digits of your credit card number, nor do we have access to the security number of your card. This keeps your financial records secure and offers you peace of mind when buying with us.

Stripe validates card information when it is saved. As a result of this process, customers may see a temporary authorization for $1 on their statement. This does not guarantee that any future charges succeed (e.g., the card no longer has sufficient funds, is reported lost or stolen, or if the account is closed). This process also includes the results of any checks, including traditional bank checks by Radar (e.g., CVC or postal code), that may have been performed.




CARBON BLACK SYSTEM LTD also offers Paypal as a payment option. With Paypal, your financial records and credit card number are never seen by CARBON BLACK SYSTEM LTD.
