For the security of electronic transactions Alfanet S.A. cooperates with Alpha Bank.
All payments made using a card are processed through Alpha Bank's electronic payment platform "Alpha e-Commerce", which uses TLS 1.1 encryption with 128-bit encryption protocol (Secure Sockets Layer - SSL).
Card information (card number, CVV2/CVC2, expiry date) is transmitted/transferred in encrypted form and is not accessible from the e-shop.
The Alpha e-Commerce Service follows the best international practices in the field of e-commerce payments and is also fully compatible with the 3D-Secure security protocols of the international card organizations American Express SafeKey®, Verified by Visa, and MasterCard Secure Code for secure online card payments.
With this mechanism, once the customer enters their card details, they will be prompted to enter the 3D-Secure code in order to authenticate the cardholder. The authentication is done through the issuing bank (issuer) and then the customer is returned to the transaction page to complete the transaction.
The systems and procedures used by Alpha Bank prevent unauthorized third parties from accessing its data and information systems.
The Bank's website on which the business customer enters his/her card details bears a digital certificate so that anyone can check its authenticity, i.e. to verify that it really belongs to Alpha Bank's Alpha e-Commerce Service.
The Alpha e-Commerce Service is managed by authorised persons of the company.
