Your security on Madeira Shopping

Credit card security

It's simple, it's safe…

Your credit card transactions on Madeira Shopping are safe. In fact, they are as safe as all other credit card transactions done on a daily basis in restaurants, shops and other businesses. Why? Because the actual transferring of money is administered by UNICRE (the VISA & MasterCard agent in Portugal) - not by Madeira-Shopping.com.

UNICRE reserves the money for Madeira Shopping's use - which means that we receive payment long after your order has been has been placed. In fact, only some time after your order has been dispatched.

Madeira Shopping operates in the same way as any other speed-point or credit card facility machine holder.

We are accredited by UNICRE
To facilitate this process, Madeira Shopping has to comply with all security requirements prescribed by UNICRE as to accredited mail order companies.
Even more so than the normal speed-point merchant - we have been rigorously credit checked and re-checked. And continue to be checked and vetted on a continuous basis. Because Madeira Shopping is an esteemed and approved credit card operator/merchant for UNICRE, our credit card transactions are protected by a convoluted process that requires verbal (over the telephone) authorisation requests and a delayed credit card funds credit system.

Squinting & squiggling (Secure Socket Layers * SSL)
In addition, as you enter your credit card number, name and address on Madeira-Shopping.com, it is encrypted as a secret code (Secure Socket Layers) for its virtual journey between your browser and Madeira-Shopping.com. An encrypted code is virtually illegible and indecipherable as it travels from destination to destination. This secret encryption is set in motion by using SSL transactions.

Secure Socket Layer transactions & Veri Sign or THAWTE
Whenever you see the Veri Sign logo or THAWTE on the Internet, you can have peace of mind that a Secure Socket Layer system is used to protect your information.

You will see on your SHOPPING BASKET page that your payment is automatically protected by clicking a "SECURE ORDER" button.

Madeira Shopping guarantees safe credit card purchases
In the unlikely event of any unauthorised charges on your credit card as a result of your online card transactions with Madeira Shopping, we will reimburse you for an amount up to 15,000$00 PTE (Portuguese Escudos) if your credit card company holds that you are liable for the purchase.

Your credit card details will NEVER be disclosed to any third parties, unless obliged to do so by law.
