& Adult Account PCI Compliance
We have partnered with ControlScan
to manage our PCI Program for adult account acquiring and the connected
(sponsor) banks. ControlScan is an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) by the
PCI Council and a leading provider of PCI security solutions for merchants.
Their easy-to-use tools and detailed, personal level of support make achieving
compliance less complicated.
PCI Compliance is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, a
world-wide benchmark mandated by the card schemes for
the protection of cardholder identity and transaction information. If
you are not covered and do not comply with the standard you could face
substantial fines imposed by card schemes or result in permanently being
barred from using card acceptance programmes, should a security breach
About the program:
The ControlScan program helps you remain secure and PCI compliant. Use
of the program is mandatory for all merchants and will be provided to
you free of charge. Note: comparable PCI compliance programs are normally
quite costly (over £200 per year). Only in case you are not PCI-compliant,
a non-compliance fee of a minimum of £50 - (or equivalent amount
in your local currency) will be charged for each month that you are non-compliant.
Please note that this non-compliance fee will not replace any fees or
fines that may be charged by card schemes in case of security issues.
How it works:
All merchants are required to provide periodical proof of their PCI-compliance,
via the ControlScan portal (login details will be provided to you)
Complete a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (“SAQ”):
Perform security scans: every three months.
The ControlScan PCI service will automatically
remind you to complete the periodical proof and conveniently provide
the questionnaire and security scans to you via the ControlScan platform.
Are you already using another PCI vendor? No problem! You can
continue to use your current PCI vendor, but you will need to upload your
SAQ and scanning results to the ControlScan portal.
Failure to be PCI compliant may increase chances of credit card fraud
or security breaches. The Payvision PCI compliance program is offered
in close cooperation with ControlScan and helps merchants operate in a
safe and PCI compliant manner.
