WEBSITE AND CREDIT CARD SECURITY
We take website and credit card security extremely seriously, and always endeavour to provide a secure, safe platform on which to conduct online transactions. Soda Cafe uses the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts your information as it is transmitted over the Internet. This encryption scrambles details such as credit card number, billing details, and delivery address so that generally, other computers are unable to decipher the information, ensuring privacy and security. To make sure you are accessing a secure server, check for the unbroken key or closed lock symbol located generally either at the bottom left or top right of your browser window. If it appears, then SSL is active. You can double check this by looking at the URL as well. If SSL is active, then the first characters of that line will read ‘https’ rather than just ‘http’. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Ensure you logout when you have finished visiting Soda Cafe, especially if you access Soda Cafe from a shared computer.
LINKING TO THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES
When you click on links and banners on our site that take you to third party web sites, you will be subject to the third party’s privacy policies. While we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, Soda Cafe cannot be responsible for the actions of any third-party websites.
What data breach procedures we have in place
All payment details, information and card numbers are stored separately in the Stripe.com environment. Stripe.com is PCI-DSS compliant. This means we never handle transactions or see customer credit card information. The card stored on your account is stored in Stripe.com database and we cannot access this in any way to view those details.
Soda Cafe is hosted through SSL and is protected through CloudFlare hosting. Attempts to infiltrate the Soda Cafe system is monitored and actively managed with firewall technology.
