Credit Card Processing and Security
Your credit card details are securely stored in our billing software, which is protected by 256-bit SSL encryption. Actual credit card transactions are processed through our partners, Authorize.net, not by The Turn Group. Both entities uphold the strictest SSL security measures to encrypt your transaction data. The Turn Group accesses your credit card information solely for processing charges related to "agreed and invoiced" services outside our routine monthly billing or for verifying your account. We do not have access to your complete credit card number; only the last four digits are visible to us, with the remaining details being encrypted.
