Stripe, the payment processor used by the website, employs industry-standard encryption methods to ensure that sensitive payment information entered into the payment form is kept secure. When a user submits their payment information, Stripe encrypts the data using Transport Layer Security (TLS), a widely-used encryption protocol. This ensures that the information transmitted between the user’s browser and Stripe’s servers is protected from interception and manipulation. Stripe also uses secure tokenization, which means that payment information is not stored on the website’s servers but instead on Stripe’s servers. This provides an extra layer of security since the website does not store any sensitive payment data.
