DO YOU STORE MY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD DETAILS?
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. However, it is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)and is stored with a AES-256 encryption only for as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of your credit card information by our store and its service providers.
