We take security seriously. LevelCredit is a recognized data furnisher to the credit bureaus, and we meet or exceed relevant standards for securing your personal information.
Here are some of our security practices:
In order to process credit cards, we must be PCI Compliant. We work with an independent security assessor to conduct audits of our processes and systems to uphold the highest PCI standards. These standards not only protect credit card data, but all of our data in general.
We are subject to KYC (“Know Your Customer”) and AML (“Anti-Money Laundering”) regulations. This means we verify the identity of all parties involved a transaction.
We use state-of-the-art cryptographic algorithms during data transmission (HTTPS with RSA 2048 bit key) and in our databases (AES 256 encryption). We do not store sensitive credit card or bank account numbers on our servers.
Regular Scanning and Testing
We use the best tools available for SSL Certificates and regular security scanning. We conduct regular internal and external scanning using industry-recognized tools.
We hire a 3rd party to regularly try to break in to our servers. That's right - they look for any vulnerabilities in both our servers and processes to help us keep things buttoned up.
We are a registered Third Party Agent with the major credit card brands. We are authorized to conduct transactions on behalf of other parties.
