Secure transformations

All card payments are processed through the Piraeus Bank (winbank) electronic payment platform in accordance with the global information security standard as defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Board, in order to reduce the potential for risk and fraudulent use of payment card data and their holders. Applies to all organizations that store, process and transmit cardholder data.

Piraeus Bank uses the SSL protocol, with 128-bit encryption (the most powerful today), for secure online commercial transactions. This encrypts all of your personal information, including your credit card number, name and address, so that it cannot be read or changed as it is transmitted over the Internet.

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol is currently the global standard on the Internet for certifying websites (web sites) to network users and for encrypting data between network users and web servers (web servers). An encrypted SSL communication requires that all information sent between a client and a server be encrypted by the sending software and decrypted by the receiving software, thus protecting personal information during its transfer. In addition, all information sent with the SSL protocol is protected by a mechanism that automatically detects whether the data has changed during the transfer.
