Chain Reaction Cycles are compliant with PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) Version 2.0.
Chain Reaction Cycles will never email or call you to ask you to disclose or verify your ChainReactionCycles.com password, credit card or bank account number. If you are contacted or receive an unsolicited email which asks you for any of this information, disregard the request and report the incident to our Customer Services team.
We take online security extremely seriously and have taken rigorous precautions to ensure that your payment information is processed confidentially and accurately.
We don't hold sensitive payment details about our customers. When you input your card details during shopping or into your account area, the card processor retains all the information about your card and only issues CRC with a unique token identifier. This token then allows us to process the cost of your order against your card. It also allows us to issue refunds or process, for example, backorder charges. We don't have access to your complete card details.
We also have a rigorous audit program, involving independent and regular assessment of our infrastructure and processes to ensure that they meet and continue to meet, the requirements laid down by the Payment Card Industry Standards Council.
Please be aware that in the interests of credit card security you may be contacted prior to the dispatch of your order with a request for additional information.

Improving Our Service
Chain Reaction Cycles does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. To better tailor our services to our customers' needs, we use non-identifying and aggregate information to help us make decisions on how to improve Chain Reaction Cycles. We also share this generic information with our advertisers and other interested, reputable parties with whom we have established a formal business relationship. For example, we may tell advertisers which areas of the site have received the most customer traffic overall, or more specifically, how many customer types have visited certain pages. However, we do not disclose the identifying information of individual customers with advertisers. We also do not use or share the personally identifiable information submitted to us by any other means without providing our customers the choice to opt-out or otherwise bar such unrelated uses.

These third parties will be employed solely for the purpose of the aforementioned analytical purposes, and as such Chain Reaction Cycles will ensure that the third party is contractually obliged to use the data only for the analytical purposes set out in the agreement between Chain Reaction Cycles and the third party, and Chain Reaction Cycles will also ensure that the third party is contractually required to maintain a level of security around the shared data, at least as safe as Chain Reaction Cycles itself employs. Failure on the part of the third party to meet its contractual obligations will result in Chain Reaction Cycles recovering the data and taking all reasonable actions to ensure the third party no longer has access to the shared data. Any third-party cookies used on Chain Reaction Cycles will adhere to the same standards as first party cookies and not collect any personally identifiable information.
