Thanks to modern technology, your credit- and debit- card transactions are actually more secure on the Internet, than when using your cards in a brick-and-mortar establishment!
This site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. This extends to both electronic correspondence between visitors and staff at DiscoverFrance.net, as well as to commercial transactions made between visitors and merchants endorsed on this site.
Our selected vendors and travel providers utilize the latest state-of-the-art 256-bit encryption technologies – known as Transport Layer Security (TLS), or Secure Socket Layer (SSL) – to ensure that your personal information, including credit card numbers, is 100% safe. At any time you are requested to provide such information, you can rest assured that you are on a secure server.
Modern browsers supporting 128-bit encryption include Camino, Firefox, Flock, Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, Safari – and a number of other, lesser-known brands.
Generally, you can confirm that you are on a secure server when asked for credit card information, by observing that the address in your web browser's address window begins with "https" instead of "http". Most browsers will also display an icon of a closed padlock in the status bar (bottom of the window), whenever you visit a secure page.
Credit-card companies are keenly aware of consumer concerns regarding identity theft and the security of online transactions. For this reason, most of them have adopted policies which protect you from any loss in the event of credit-card fraud (online or off). We encourage you to contact your financial institution or credit-card issuer to verify their particular policies.
