SaferPayments

Smart, Hassle-free Security Compliance

Every business that accepts card payments is required to meet certain data security standards in order to protect the card data of customers and to reduce the risk of a data security breach. By complying with the data security standards, you help protect your business and your customers.

The SaferPayments program is designed to make it easy for you to confirm your compliance by guiding you through a self-assessment questionnaire and giving you the opportunity to upload your current compliance certificate if you have one.

Once you are certified with SaferPayments or SaferPayments Plus program, then if you experience a data breach we will, subject to certain conditions, waive our right to pass on the first £35,000 / €40,000 of card scheme fines on to you if using SaferPayments or £50,000 / €55,000 if using the SaferPayments Plus program.
  • Have answered the online questionnaire honestly and in good faith when self certifying compliance
  • Within seven working days of discovery of the data compromise advise us in writing of any failure of security within your business or your card acceptance systems
  • Retain records, logs and electronic evidence relating to a data compromise and make this available promptly upon request by Worldpay or the Card Schemes
  • Co-operate with Worldpay and the involved payment networks in all investigations relating to any data compromise, including allowing forensic investigators, appointed by Worldpay
