The security of your personal information is very important to us. In order for us to collect sensitive, identifying information such as bank account and credit card we MUST enable and collect information over a safe & secure SSL encrypted booking platform.
SSL is a protocol for providing secure communications on the Internet. SSL provides for the authentication and encryption of traffic between your browser and Internet servers. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements designed to ensure that ALL companies that process, store ortransmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. Essentially any merchant that has a Merchant ID (MID). In compliance with this policy, your payment information is secure within this booking form, even though the URL on the embedded website will not display the “HTTPS.”
Why does the website not display a "HTTPS" in the brower even though the booking form is encrypted & secure? Enabling an entire website with full SSL can cause SOME browsers to misread a site, mistaking it as malicious and restricting it all together. For this reason, we have enabled areas of the site that collect sensitive information with SSL and left areas that only display information accessible.
