We provide paid products and/or services within the Service. We use telephone based third-party services for payment processing (e.g. payment processors).

Protecting telephone-based payment card data:

We accept and/or process payment card data over the telephone. We do not hold any customer card details, in order to protect our customers from compromise and fraud. Where call recording is applicable for quality, training purposes or fact verification purposes, all sensitive data is blocked from the recording and rendered irretrievable and unusable after authorisation, in compliance with PCI DSS standards.

We will not under any circumstances store your payment card details. Payment is taken live ‘in call’ and details are either entered into a card machine which is owned, serviced, processed and managed by Square or entered into our online processing which is owned, serviced, processed and managed by Paypal (see below for a link to their privacy policies).

When using a third party payment service, any information is provided directly to our third-party payment processors whose use of your personal information is governed by their Privacy Policy. These payment processors adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.
