USE OF STRIPE
ALWAYS WELL EQUIPPED
Stripe respects the highest standards of online payment security! Payments by bank card (Blue, Visa, Mastercard) are made in full at the end of the order. All bank card payments are 100% secured by the Stripe platform, in accordance with French and international interbank security systems. Stripe allows Internet users to shop online securely and with confidence. Your bank details are encrypted (SSL technology). They do not circulate in clear on the internet and cannot be intercepted. Your bank details (card number, expiration date, etc.) are never communicated to us.
Is payment with Stripe safe?
When purchasing online using Stripe, the entire transaction is carried out on our banking site in encrypted mode. You temporarily leave the merchant's site transparently to save your bank details. This is the guarantee that: the merchant will never know your card number! Stripe will not know anything about the details of your purchases since only the total amount and the order number are sent to us by the merchant.
What security does Stripe use?
Stripe uses the standardized encryption system called “the SSL protocol”.
When you are on the payment page, it takes the form of:
- A closed padlock in the corner of your browser.
- Https: // mode instead of http: // in your browser's address bar.
When you switch from unencrypted mode to encrypted mode (and vice versa), browsers display a message warning you of the change. Check these items before entering confidential data, it is a guarantee of security. In order to use the most powerful protocols, we recommend using a browser of the latest version.
Stripe uses the following methods to secure its payment pages:
- All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256.
- Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting and transmitting card numbers runs independently, without sharing any sensitive information with Stripe’s core services.
Security at Stripe also includes the following certifications and licenses:
- PCI DSS Level 1 Certification U.S. Money Transfer
- License Complies with European DSP2 directive and strong client authentication
- SSAE18 / SOC 1 Type 1 and 2 reports E-money license in Europe
What information is needed to use Stripe?
Stripe will ask you for the following information:
- the bank card or private card number (15 or 16 digit numbers)
- the expiration date
- the visual cryptogram (3 or 4 last digits on the signature strip of your card)
With the deployment of the 3D Secure (recognizable with the “Verifed By Visa” or “MasterCard SecureCode” logos) your bank will also ask you during payment to authenticate yourself with confidential information to be entered on an internet page of your own bank.
What is Internet piracy?
The risk of having your credit card number “hacked” when you buy a product on a website equipped with Stripe is very small. Fraudulent uses of bank card numbers exist. They most often result from another phenomenon: an ill-intentioned individual who has found or stolen a bank card number uses this number to make purchases on the net. The bank card number is valid, since its real holder uses it recklessly. Credit card validity verification systems cannot therefore identify the offender. Only 3D Secure reduces this risk because you must also authenticate yourself with your bank.
