It doesn’t apply to information we may collect from you elsewhere or in different situations (such as through email correspondence).

1. Security

Is ordering on Game Card Power secure?
Most definitely!  We take our security very seriously, and we do whatever we can to protect our customers' sensitie data.  Credit card information for web orders is protected in the following ways:

  • 256-bit encryption to and from our servers and your web browser.
  • Credit Card Numbers are not stored in our database.  Credit Card Numbers are stored by our financial institution, for purposes of processing.
  • We use added security to protect us from spammers to SQL injections to DDOS attacks, cross site scripting, and email harvesters.
  • Once the information is transmitted to our servers for processing, we use even stronger encryption in the back end to transmit the request to our payment processor to verify the credit card and place an authorization for the order total.
  • If the authorization, address verification and risk assessment all clear, the order is accepted and a one-time unique ID is associated with the order for purposes of billing the previous authorization.  This ID cannot be used to place futher authorizations or bill more than the original auth.  It contains no identifiable link to the credit card number.
  • Once that ID has been used to bill the order (which happens once the order begins shipping), it is no longer valid and cannot be used to authorize or bill again. 

To learn more about how to protect yourself online, we encourage you to visit the website www.onguardonline.gov.
