The entire BuyOut website is served via a secure, private connection using HTTPS. Data sent using HTTPS is secured via Transport Layer Security protocol (TLS), which provides three key layers of protection:
Encryption, Data integrity and Authentication.
Encrypting the exchanged data to keep it secure from eavesdroppers. That means that while you are browsing a website, nobody can “listen” to your conversations, track your activities across multiple pages or steal your information.
2. Data integrity
Data cannot be modified or corrupted during transfer, intentionally or otherwise, without being detected.
Proves that you communicate with the intended website. It protects against man-in-the-middle attacks and builds user trust, which translates into other business benefits.
BuyOut does not have access to your card details.
3D Secure is a new method of security mandated by the Visa and Mastercard Associations and managed by South African banks to enhance security of online transactions.
3D Secure provides an extra layer of security by requiring that the cardholder submits a second level of authentication when shopping online.
Mastercard’s product is called “SecureCode” and Visa’s product is called “Verified by Visa”.
If your bank is not enrolled in 3D Secure, your transaction will still be secure and you will be able to continue to checkout.
Please contact your bank if you have any queries.
