Payment Methods & Security Measures
ChildTrek uses SSL 256-bit encryption technology, double the standard protection used by most commercial web sites.
Accepted Payment Types
ChildTrek accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
Credit Card Security
ChildTrek wants you to be confident that your sensitive information is fully protected at all times. That is why we have taken significant steps to protect your personal information. We use a higher level of security than those typically used by most commercial web sites. That is, we use high assurance Secure Sockets Layer (SSL 256-bit) encryption technology. This is double the standard protection (i.e., 128-bit) used by most online stores. This process encrypts all of your personal information, including your name, address and credit card information. You can see verification of this exceptional technology at work at the footer area of each of pages at ChildTrek.
As an additional protection, we require that all users verify their credit card information by entering the card verification number (CVN), which makes up the three numbers on the back of your credit card. This is an industry practice designed to check if the credit card is in your possession. It is very important then that you do not share your card to unauthorized users and that you protect your CVN. ChildTrek does not store your CVN and only uses it to confirm the presence of the physical card.
When is my card charged?
Your card is charged only when your order is shipped. If multi-itemed orders have to be split and shipped separately, more than one charge may appear on your statement.
When you first place your order at ChildTrek.com, we pre-authorize your credit card to make sure that there are sufficient funds available. Again, it is not until the order is shipped that actual charges are posted on your card. Please note that if your order needs to be cancelled, the time it takes to remove the pre-authorization depends on your credit card financial institution.
