Keeping Our Users Safe

13 Jul

Let’s face it, credit card fraud and identity theft are on the rise. We must be careful of who we divulge our personal information to. A great majority of us have had at least one instance where our sensitive payment information has been┬ácompromised.

Mindful of the growing threat, tapviva takes every precaution when handling customer credit card data. As with virtually every other online service, we encrypt your billing information and credit card number as you set up your account for the first time. To mitigate the fallout of any potential data breach (which is unlikely to begin with), we never store your credit card number on our servers. Both tapviva and the restaurants who partner with us can never reveal your credit card number, as it is handled only by our bank. So when you place an order through tapviva, we send a tokenized request to our credit card processor to initiate a charge to your credit card.

We are dead serious about security and make every effort to protect every one of our customers. Our system rock-solid secure, as we’re able to avoid the threats posed by physical payment methods. So that said, we look forward to make you safer while cutting the line.
