Secure Gateway Rapid SSL
When sensitive information needs to be transmitted at Scintera.com.au we implement the use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which creates a secure connection for this data to be sent. The sensitive data that you submit is encrypted using 128-bit encryption, therefore making it difficult for anyone to reach your information as it moves through the system. Pages that include the SSL technology is any page that involves the processing of your credit card information. Our SSL certificate is a "rapidssl" certificate that was purchased from the above link.
When storing your passwords that are required for login we use a Secure Hash Algorithm which involves a 160-bit hash. A hash is a unique string that represents the password and cannot be converted back into the password itself. Therefore when validating a users password we generate a hash for the password entered and compare it to the value in the database that was stored. By hashing a password we prevent your passwords being retrieved from our database by an unauthorised attack.
The financial gateway that receives your details is Australia’s leading payment gateway, EWay(www.eway.com.au). Eway implements the highest security levels possible and transmits all information via SSL encryption. The financial transactions are finally processed through the Westpac Bank, one of Australia’s largest and longest established banks. No credit card details are stored once your purchase has been processed.
Scintera.com.au never asks for your private information such as your Scintera.com.au account password, billing information or credit card in an email or on the phone. If you receive an email or phone call requesting you provide personal account information such as your password or billing information, do not respond. These emails are also known as "spoof" or "phishing" emails. The people who send these emails hope that unsuspecting recipients will reply or click on a link contained in the email and then provide sensitive personal information such as credit card information.
Web browsers including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Netscape, and Opera all have built-in security mechanisms to ensure that users do not accidentally submit personal information over an insecure link. When viewing our payment pages on these web browsers, the URL in the browser window displays "https" at the beginning of the URL instead of "http". This signals that the connection is secure and the SSL layer is present for this page. When viewing secure pages at Scintera.com.au a padlock icon is displayed on all these browsers. By clicking on this padlock icon it will display our security information to you and reassure you that we do use encryption for your data.
