The anxin.gr website uses the SSL protocol, for secure online commercial transactions. This encrypts all credit card information so that it cannot be read or changed in transit over the Internet.
The SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol is today the global standard on the internet for certifying websites to web users and for encrypting information between web users and web servers. An encrypted SSL communication requires that all information sent between a client and a server be encrypted by the sending software and decrypted by the receiving software, thus protecting personal information in transit. In addition, all information sent with the SSL protocol is protected by a mechanism that automatically checks if the data has been changed in transit.
All payments made using a card are processed through Alpha Bank's "Alpha e-Commerce" electronic payment platform and uses TLS 1.2 encryption with a 128-bit encryption protocol (Secure Sockets Layer - SSL). Encryption is a way of encoding information until it reaches its intended recipient, who will be able to decode it using the appropriate key.
