About payment security
The online store supports secure credit card payments through an interface with the Viva Payments service.
Through VIVA Payments you can use any type of debit and credit card, without the need to create additional accounts and with direct payments, through a simple redirect, in the 100% safe and easy-to-use environment of VIVA Payments. In addition, by using VIVA Payments as a payment method, you benefit twice from the very low costs/commissions of the service, but also from the immediate and even faster shipping of your order.
Viva Payments is a Payment Institution licensed by the Bank of Greece. The same basic principles of confidentiality and privacy that govern banking apply equally to Viva Payments. Viva Services has received PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification, and implements the prescribed security policy which is evaluated with continuous checks by a certified auditor. To ensure the confidentiality of the data transfer, the EV SSL-128bit encryption protocol is used. The system has been implemented in collaboration with the Thawte company, which specializes in transaction security issues. Access to Viva Payments systems is controlled by state-of-the-art firewalls and malicious attack detection systems (Intrusion Detection and Denial of Service Protection Systems).
