What is PCI Compliance?
Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standards are minimum requirements for protecting your customers' and donors’ payment card information. Adopted by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, and JCB, PCI compliance is required for all merchants that store, transmit, or process payment card information.
Are my Kindful donation pages and plugin PCI Compliant?
Yes, Kindful integrates with world-class payment processing tools including Stripe, Authorize.net, Spreedly and PayPal. The simplest way for you to be PCI compliant is to never see (or have access to) card data at all. When you use Stripe, Authorize.net or Paypal with Kindful’s donation pages, a donor is actually entering their credit card details directly into form fields hosted by the gateway behind the scenes.
In addition to integrating with PCI compliant payment gateways, Kindful’s donation pages and plugin securely transmits card data directly to the gateway without it passing through Kindful servers. Donation pages are served pages securely using Transport Layer Security (TLS) so that they make use of HTTPS. Kindful also reviews and validates each payment processor’s PCI compliance annually.
