Yes! We don’t store your credit card information on our servers.
Any time you enter payment information (such as a credit card, a debit card, an ACH account, etc.) to our online giving system, it’s sent over an encrypted connection from your web browser directly to Stripe – one of the largest, most advanced payment processors in the world. They handle payment processing for services like Kickstarter, Lyft, Shopify, Pinterest, Twitter, Heroku, SurveyMonkey, and many other companies. Once Stripe receives valid payment information, they then issue an encrypted “token.” Our giving system usees these tokens to create charges against those credit cards and bank accounts – even though we can’t access the full details of those payment methods. We can only fetch the basic information such as the last 4 digits, the type of payment method, its expiration date, and your name. The full account number or CVC number isn’t released to us.
Not a single card or bank account number is stored on our system. Stripe itself is a certified “PCI Service Provider Level 1” payment processor. This is the most stringent level of certification available.
