Safe and Secure Shopping
Is it safe to use my credit card?
Yes, shopping at uRead.com is 100% safe. Credit card payments are processed through
the Axis Bank (formerly UTI Bank) payment gateway. Axis Bank is one of the biggest
and most trusted banks in India. Internet Banking and other payments are processed
by CCAvenue. We are also adding other payment gateways like PayPal which are the
most secured gateways globally. Axis Bank uses the latest encryption technology
to protect your credit card information. It encrypts your credit card number so
that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. Furthermore,
Axis Bank also asks you to enter the CVV (Credit Verification Value) number on your
credit card. This is a 3 digit number which follows your credit card number and
is given at the back of the card to ensure that the person entering the card number
has the physical plastic card with him/her. You can be assured that uRead.com offers
you the highest standards of security currently available on the Net so as to ensure
that your shopping experience is private, safe and secure.
Does uRead.com store my credit card information?
URead.com does not collect or store your credit card/bank account information at
all. Axis Bank/CCAvenue authorizes the transaction directly without any information
passing through us.
