How can I be assured that the handling of my card data is kept secure?
The card payment page is secured by strong encryption, SSL, built into your web browser in combination with a security certificate on our server.
Our booking system is set within an i-frame which prevents a browser from displaying a padlock security symbol or "https" in the address bar. This does not affect the security of the page and all necessary security systems are in place for any bookings made online.
To confirm that our site is secure, at the card payment page, right click on the booking and select "properties". You will see that the booking system is encrypted and by clicking on the VeriSign security logo, you will also be able to read the validity details of the certificate responsible for the encryption.
Stena Line has also put in place the more secure Verified by Visa and Mastercard Secure Code payment systems to help protect customers.
The new security solution for card payments on the internet verifies identification of the cardholder. Visa and MasterCard have developed the security solution and it is a standard that all merchants will have to comply to.
