Gumballs.com Security Policy
The Gumballs.com website is certified compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This certification his achieved by monthly independent 3rd party security scan testing. All credit card transactions through Gumballs.com are handled with industry-standard 256-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption by Authorize.net, and certified by CloudFlare. This means that when you enter your credit card number into our Secure Order Form and place your order, your information goes through a highly secure encryption process which prevents any person on the Internet from seeing your information. Within just a few seconds, it reaches our credit card authorization server, is decrypted, and is quickly authorized without any human intervention. After your card is charged your credit card information is deleted and is never stored by Gumballs.com.
As surprising as it may seem, this process is considerably more secure than turning your credit card over to a waiter in a restaurant, where they walk away with your credit card information and can easily write it down. If you still feel uncomfortable about entering your credit card information online, we would be more than happy to process your order over the phone. Just call us!
