The https protocol stands for secure data transfer hypertext protocol. This is a secure version of the http protocol that is used to transfer data between your browser and the website. This means that all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted. The letter ‘s’ means security. Web browsers will usually display a green lock to indicate that a secure connection has been established. To work with https certificate must be installed on the server.
https uses public and private system keys. Data that has been encrypted using a public key can only be decrypted using a private key and vice versa.
When the browser connects to the web page using the https protocol, the server sends its https certificate in the browser. This certificate contains the public key required to start a secure session.
Data transmitted via a normal http connection is sent as plain text and can theoretically be read by anyone who intercepts the connection. With an https connection, all data is securely encrypted, which means that even if someone intercepts them, they will not be able to read the data.
VISA and MasterCard have developed a system for making secure online purchases. The secure e-commerce payment system requires the issuer of the card (bank, savings bank, or other entity) to identify the cardholder before authorizing payment via Internet.
https://the-casual.com is registered with this security protocol and hence, once all products to be purchased have been selected and all other subsequent data has been introduced relevant to said purchase, a window that connects to the banking entity opens and requests identification.
Your debit or credit card’s data and your password are protected by the security system (via SSL protocol with https connection) from the moment of their entry and shall at no time be provided to our company.
Once the bank has verified identification, https://the-casual.com will receive confirmation that the cardholder has completed the transaction satisfactorily and will complete the order. If card identification is not correctly completed, the banking entity informs https://the-casual.com of this fact and the order is cancelled with no charges whatsoever made to your card.
