Checkfront is PCI DSS compliant. This compliance extends to all accounts powered by Checkfront and transactions that are processed through our system.
The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was created by the major credit card companies to ensure the adoption of consistent security measures by all merchants.
There are six categories of PCI standards that must be met in order for a merchant to be deemed compliant:
- Maintain a Secure Network.
- Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program.
- Regularly Monitor and Test Networks.
- Protect Cardholder Data.
- Implement Strong Access Control Measures.
- Maintain an Information Security Policy.
Checkfront does not store cardholder data on premises but relies entirely on third payment gateways to handle these functions. Our third party service providers handle payment processing and storage of cardholder data. All third party processor supported by Checkfront are confirmed to be PCI DSS certified.
* Note that your merchant bank may have additional PCI compliance requirements. Software as a Service applications, such as Checkfront, are considered service providers. PCI compliance is confirmed only for accounts that utilize a compatible payment gateway.
Please see Data Protection, Ownership & Confidentiality in our Terms of Service, or contact us for information on our PCI policy and compliance.
