Is my transaction secure ?
HawksNest Online offers you a safe and secure shopping experience.
You will notice a padlock icon on the base of your browser when you enter our website.
This indicates that all information entered in the session is secure.
If you are paying by credit card, once your details are entered, your payment will be processed online.
Once you click 'Process Order', we send the transaction to the bank. Unlike giving credit card details over the phone, our online system automatically encrypts all your details using the SSL encryption standard.
Furthermore, our our online shop platform includes a fraud protection system (Kount) which is hosted on our payment gateway (Braintree).
This system automatically checks all credit card payments to validate the card is not marked by fraudulent activity.
It reviews and matches fields such as:
- Customer Name
- Customer Location (IP Address)
- Customer Email & Billing Address
If any of these do not match what is registered on the credit card, or if the card has been already registered as having fraudulent activity, the payment gateway will prevent the successful processing of the transaction and flag the card as fraudulent.
