When you make a payment through the PC Gaming CR E-commerce website, all information related to it will remain secure at all times. During the transfer, the data is encrypted.
How do we protect your payment by credit card?
We use one of the most reliable secure payment systems on the Internet: the SSL protocol. (For more information, visit www.ssl.com). All your personal data is protected and encrypted before sending for processing.
What is SSL?
The latest advances in browser and server technology have facilitated the use of web services without problems related to electronic fraud. An example of this is Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), developed by Netscape, a security protocol sent to Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) as an Internet draft. Basically, the protocol allows the browser and the server of a web session to authenticate each other and protect the information that will subsequently flow between the two points. Through the use of cryptographic techniques such as coding and digital signature, the protocol: allows browsers and web servers to authenticate with each other; allows website owners to control access to servers, controls, files or particular services; allows you to share confidential information (such as credit card numbers) between the browser and the server, keeping it inaccessible to third parties; and allows the data exchanged by the browser and the server cannot be corrupted, either accidentally or deliberately, without being detected.
How can you tell if the connection is secure?
In Internet Explorer, you will see a lock icon in the security status bar. The security status bar is to the right of the address bar. The certificate used to encrypt the connection also contains information about the identity of the owner or organization of the website. You can click on the lock to see the identity of the website.
VeriSign is the world authority on information security issues.
Pagadito fully meets the requirements to obtain Verisign Extended Certification for secure data transmission over SSL.
VeriSign performs daily checks on our servers and connections allowing data encryption to keep them protected while they are being transmitted.
PCI DSS, is the acronym in English for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (Standard of Data Security for the Payment Card Industry).
This is a standard developed by a committee made up of the most important card companies (Visa, MasterCard, etc.), called PCI SSC (Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council). These guidelines establish guidelines on the processing, storage and transmission of cardholder data.
PCI DSS forms a set of data security mechanisms and administrative and operational rules that govern this business. These regulations ensure the management of said data, in order to prevent fraud involving credit and debit cards.

Identify a fake email
The objective of this type of email is to acquire personal information, such as credit or debit card number, number of documents or security codes. These messages try to look authentic by claiming to be sent by real companies. They even place the same graphics and designs of these companies. Some add links to fake websites very similar to the real ones, where they request personal information.
Here we offer a list of elements that can help you identify them easily:
Greeting: Many false emails begin with general greetings like "Attention: Pagadito user". Pagadito's emails are always personalized.
Urgency and threat to your account: These false messages usually communicate that Pagadito has an urgent need to update and expand your personal data. Most of these false emails threaten the immediate discontinuity of the service or the disabling of your account. Pagadito never requests data by email.
Request for personal information: Stay alert of emails requesting personal information through links or forms included in the body of the message. This information can be your username and password, credit card number or bank account. Pagadito never requires the user to enter their password or username from an email. Pagadito addresses the Login screen of the website when it involves an action that requires entry into your account.
Links in the e-mail: Always check the URL of the site where the e-mail link takes you, make sure it is from Pagadito.
Once you have identified a fake email, we recommend you do the following:
Do not respond to the message
Report it immediately, copying the message and sending it to [email protected]
Delete the message from your email account.
By reporting a false email is helping to ensure the integrity and safety of the users of Pagadito.
