Secure Online Shopping Tips

Only buy at secure websites

Make sure the website you are purchasing from uses SSL. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a technology for encoding information transmitted over the Internet. This technology supports data encryption.

Encryption is the transformation of a message into an incomprehensible form by a key. Its purpose is to ensure privacy by keeping information hidden from anyone for whom it is not intended, even those who have access to the encrypted data. Decryption is the reverse of encryption; it is the transformation of encrypted data back into an incomprehensible form by the corresponding key.


Check out privacy policies before buying

Many companies with privacy practices post their privacy policy on their Web sites. A company's privacy policy should disclose what information is being collected on the Web site and how that information is being used. Before you provide a company with personal information, check its privacy policy. If you can't find a policy, send an email or written message to the Web site to ask about its policy and request that it be posted on the site.

Keep your password private

We recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. The company should never ask for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.

Keep a record

Be sure to print or save a copy of your purchase order and confirmation number for your records.

What is a CVV, CVC, CID or Credit Card Security Code?

The Card Security Code (CSC), sometimes called Card Verification Value or Code (CVV or CVC), is a security feature for credit card transactions, giving increased protection against credit card fraud.

There are actually two security codes.

  • The first, called CVC1 or CVV1, is encoded on the magnetic stripe of the card and used for in-person transactions.
  • The second one, and the most cited, is CVV2 or CVC2. It is often asked for by merchants so that they can secure "card not present" transactions occurring over the Internet, by mail, fax or over the phone.

This latter CSC should not be confused with the standard credit card account number appearing in embossed digits. (The standard credit card number undergoes a separate validation algorithm called the Luhn algorithm which serves to determine whether or not a given credit card's number is appropriate.)

The CVV2 is a 3 or 4 digit value printed on the card or signature strip, but not available on the magnetic stripe.  The number is generated when the card is issued, by encrypting the card number and expiry date under a key known only to the issuing bank. Supplying this code in a transaction is intended to verify that the customer has the card in their physical possession.

The Card Security Code is located on the back of MasterCard, Visa and Discover credit or debit cards and is typically a separate group of 3 digits to the right of the signature strip.

On American Express cards, the Card Security Code is a printed (NOT embossed) group of four digits on the front towards the right.
