Security of Transactions and Donations' Cancelation Policy
Security of Transactions
ALPHA BANK has undertaken the procedure of clearing your transactions ensuring absolute safety. By inputting your credit card information, the Bank does not immediately charge the sum of your order but commits it. The charge takes place only when your order is being processed.
Your credit card information is transferred to a secure page of the Bank. The security certificate used ALPHA BANK employs the SSL 128 bit (Secure Socket Layer) encryption protocol. SSL is an Internet’s worldwide standard and offers encrypted SSL communication 128 bit.
To identify an SSL encrypted transaction you can observe on your browser a small yellow lock and then you will be transferred to an https:// website.
Through SSL encryption your computer sends the request to the Bank’s server. The server then sends back to your computer the security certificate, acknowledgement of your visit to the intended website, and your public key. Consequently, your computer uses this public key to encrypt confidential information (i.e. the credit card data) and sends it to the server that uses its private key to decode it.
