Our platform security systems are designed to proactively block numerous web application attacks issues which may arise. Our rules evolve constantly.
We conduct periodic code reviews and security audits of all internal environments and processes. We partner with third-party, independent security firms to ensure best practice security measures are always in place.
Proper server configuration is vital to securing your web environment. Our software stack includes provisions to ensure optimal performance, including disk write limitations and protection against scripts known to contain vulnerabilities. We also implement PHP tuning to disallow dangerous or insecure commands.
Fraud Protection Security.
- For your own security, you won’t be able to submit an order on mixedchicks.net if the billing address, credit card expiration date and/or security code doesn’t match your credit card statement.
- mixedchicks.netrequires you to enter the correct security code with every purchase. We will not remember your security code.
- Our credit card processor uses an advanced adaptive learning system that evaluates each payment’s risk level in real-time. It uses hundreds of signals about each payment and taps into data across our network of 100,000+ businesses to predict whether a payment is likely to be fraudulent. The machine learning system is flexible and responsive, continuously learns from new customer behaviors and transaction features, and incorporates feedback from you whenever payments are indicated as fraudulent.
- We don’t store credit cards on our servers. No sensitive payment information data hits our servers.
