Clearwater Technologies, Inc. is PCI Compliant
We are proud to inform our valued customers that Clearwater Tech is PCI DataSecurity Standard compliant. We have partnered with Element Payment Services, Inc. to provide a secure payment processing solution. When you purchase products from Clearwater Tech, your account information will be separated and not retained online so that supplier details flow through us, while sensitive account information runs through Element’s secure servers.
In 2004, major credit card companies, recognizing the need to secure sensitive card holder information in the wake of increasing electronic commerce, created the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). PCI DSS is determined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, which is governed jointly by the major payment card issuing companies, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and JCB International.
Since the government has not instituted laws with regards to payment card security standards, the PCI DSS compliance program is voluntary for merchants. Clearwater Tech, in our commitment to being the highest quality industrial parts supplier possible, has brought our payment processing and storage systems into PCI DSS compliance through our partnership with Element.
Being PCI compliant, you can rest easy knowing that your sensitive account information is safeguarded by one of the leaders in online payment processing. If you would like to know more about our new processing system, or have other questions about our products, please call our Customer Service Department at (800) 894-0412.
