Secure Shopping – Neighborhood

Secure Shopping

The entire Spree website is served via a secure, private connection using HTTPS. Data sent using HTTPS is secured via Transport Layer Security protocol (TLS), which provides three key layers of protection:

Encryption, Data integrity and Authentication.

1. Encryption

Encrypting the exchanged data to keep it secure from eavesdroppers. That means that while you are browsing a website, nobody can “listen” to your conversations, track your activities across multiple pages or steal your information.

2. Data integrity

Data cannot be modified or corrupted during transfer, intentionally or otherwise, without being detected.

3. Authentication

Proves that you communicate with the intended website. It protects against man-in-the-middle attacks and builds user trust, which translates into other business benefits.

Neighborhood ensures fraud protection and secure card storage by partnering with Peach Payments, a PCI-DSS Level 1 certified transaction platform and credit card storage vault.

3D Secure is a new method of security mandated by the Visa and Mastercard Associations and managed by South African banks to enhance security of online transactions.

3D Secure provides an extra layer of security by requiring that the cardholder submits a second level of authentication when shopping online.

Mastercard’s product is called “SecureCode” and Visa’s product is called “Verified by Visa”.
