Security of Transmission of Payment Card Data

At Southland Honda, ensuring the secure transmission of your payment card data is a top priority. We are dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for all transactions and have implemented a series of robust security measures to protect your personal and payment information.

Encryption and Data Security

  • SSL/TLS Encryption: Our website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts all information transmitted between your computer and our servers. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using advanced transport layer security (TLS).

Third-Party Payment Processors

  • To further secure your data, we use trusted third-party payment gateways to process our credit card transactions. These gateways are also fully compliant with the PCI DSS. By using these services, Southland Honda ensures that your payment data is processed securely without being stored on our servers.
  • Our third-party processors are audited regularly and are required to keep your payment information secure. Information sent to these processors is encrypted using industry-standard technology, which is the best encryption software available today for online transactions.

Monitoring and Response

  • We monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks and regularly update our information security policies and procedures to safeguard our systems and your personal information against unauthorized access and use.
  • In case of a data breach, we have in place procedures to minimize any impact and notify affected users in accordance with applicable legal requirements.
