  • We run penetration testing on our system on a weekly basis to look for vulnerabilities. We are only required to do it once every three months, but we run it every week.

  • Payments and card details are automatically checked against large online databases of blacklisted details.
  • All suspicious transactions are manually reviewed by our stellar Support Team.
