Security is one of the most significant concerns for both you and us when it comes to online transactions. In reality, an online transaction is more secure than a card transaction in a shop or those carried over the telephone or by fax. The information transmitted online is strongly encrypted using advanced algorithm combinations. Any communication between you and Gala Bingo is also encrypted using TLS1.2 (or above) encryption and TSL\SSL Certificates.
Your Payment Details
We use TLS1.2 encryption software or above. This means that any information you enter into our online forms, such as payment details, is automatically protected. We secure your private information using TSL\SSL Certificates from Digicert.
The 3-D Secure™ protocol (Security for the user)
You are also protected against fraudulent use of your card in a "card not present" environment by your card issuer. Card issuers provide the right for you to dispute a transaction if the goods/services do not arrive or if the card is used fraudulently. For your security online, we also support online authentication protocols, Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode.
What is the Verified by Visa?
Verified by Visa is a new way to add security to your online payments. By adding a password to your existing Visa card, Verified by Visa ensures that only you can use your Visa card online. It's easy to activate for your existing Visa card, and it's free. For more information, please click here .
What is the MasterCard SecureCode?
MasterCard SecureCode is a simple and secure way to pay at thousands of online stores. A private code known only to you and your bank, your SecureCode enhances your existing MasterCard account by protecting you against unauthorized use of your card when shopping online at participating online websites.
