How is my credit card information stored?

Forbes Music Company processes payments through Stripe, Inc. Stripe is an online payment processing platform that enables businesses to safely conduct online payment transactions. Any time you provide us with payment information online you are doing so completely over HTTPS – your data is fully encrypted prior to transmission by an industry standard SSL connection. Furthermore, when providing us with payment information online you are interacting directly with Stripe via their “hosted payment pages” such that we at Forbes Music are not collecting any card information but rather, all sensitive credit card information is being passed directly to Stripe. Stripe is PCI DSS Level 1 compliant, and they follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) – a set of requirements designed to ensure that ALL companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.Forbes Music does not keep, store, or have access to detailed credit card information. We, as Forbes Music, do not have access to your card details. We can only access the IIN (Issuer Identification Number) and last 4 digits of the card number along with the expiry date and card type in order to facilitate the handling of customer support issues related to payments.
