The security of your online purchase information is very important to us. We take many measures to ensure that your online shopping experience at Crucial is as safe and secure as possible.
We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protection to protect your orders. This means your personal information is scrambled (encrypted) as it travels over the Internet. That way your name, address, credit card number, etc., cannot be read by a third party. Your browser will display icons to indicate when you have arrived at a secure page.
Because we take fraud prevention seriously, Crucial participates in the Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCard™ programs. These programs allow cardholders to create a password that adds an additional level of protection to their card. When you enter your credit card number at Crucial, we check to see if you've registered for either program. If you have, you must enter your password in order to complete your purchase. It's just one more way to make your shopping experience as safe as possible.
Verified by Visa is a new service that lets you shop online with added confidence. Through a simple checkout process, Verified by Visa confirms your identity when you make purchases at participating online stores. It's convenient, and it works with your existing Visa card.
Plus, Verified by Visa is a snap to use. You register your card just once, and create your own password. Then, when you make purchases at participating online stores, a Verified by Visa window will appear. Simply enter your password and click submit. Your identity is verified and the purchase is secure.
To learn more, visit Verified by Visa or contact the financial institution that issued your Visa card.
MasterCard® SecureCode™ is a service from MasterCard and your card issuer that provides added protection when you buy online. There is no need to get a new MasterCard or Maestro® card. You choose your own personal MasterCard SecureCode and it is never shared with any merchant. A private code means added protection against unauthorized use of your credit or debit card when you shop online.
Every time you pay online with your MasterCard or Maestro card, a box pops up from your card issuer asking you for your personal SecureCode, just like the bank does at the ATM. In seconds, your card issuer confirms it's you and allows your purchase to be completed.
