Credit Card Data
Mediaspec's Merchant Account allows us to accept credit card information over the internet. All customers who place orders via Mediaspec's website must be the cardholder specified on the card that is used to place the order, and all deliveries must be made to the cardholder's registered address.

To increase security for all our customers, Mediaspec will carry out a security check on all internet credit card transactions. This will ensure that all deliveries are made to the cardholder’s registered address and that the card is valid for transactions.

We endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information. However, we cannot guarantee the security of any data you disclose on-line. You accept the inherent security risks of providing information and dealing on-line over the Internet and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security unless this is due to our negligence or wilful default.

All credit and debit card transactions are processed by Sage Pay. At no point do Mediaspec view the debit/credit card number that is submitted by our online customers.

To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. By accepting these terms and conditions you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information. You can rest assured that this is done only to confirm your identity, that a credit check is not performed and that your credit rating will be unaffected. All information provided by you will be treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Changes to this policy The above may change at any time. We will endeavour to notify you of any major changes but you may wish to check it each time you visit our website.
