Verified by Visa
 
Each time you make an online purchase with a participating merchant, the Verified by Visa program assesses the risk level of the transaction. Certain activity may seem out of the ordinary – maybe because it’s a high dollar value transaction, or a retailer you’ve never bought with before. In these instances you may be asked to confirm some simple personal details – like date of birth, mother's maiden name or address details – so we can be sure the card isn't be used without your permission. Your privacy is our priority – this information is used only to verify your identity. If you have any questions about Verified by Visa visit the Verified by Visa website.
