Online Payment and Live Bidding Security
PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) is the most rigorous standard in the payment industry today. PCI DSS standards are enforced by VISA, MasterCard and the banks and specify the technical aspects of a payment service as well as operational policies and procedures. 2020 Auctions are working with SagePay, to ensure that all these security obligations are being fulfilled and your data is as safe as can be.
How we keep our systems secure
We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. These security measures include firewalls, data backup procedures and where appropriate, encryption and secure internet transactions. Despite these measures, “perfect security” on the internet does not exist.
