Online Donation Security
On this page you will find information that can clarify your doubts about how an online donation to UNBEATABLES takes place and its security.
What can I donate with online?
To make your contribution to UNBEATABLES you must have a credit card of the VISA, Mastercard, CartaSì, Postepay, Aura circuits or be a PayPal account holder.
You can make the transaction up to the last day of your credit card’s validity.
What are the steps to make an online credit card donation?
When you have entered all of your biographical information into the donation form on the UNBEATABLES site and clicked “Confirm” you will be automatically sent to a page on the PayPal service (an electronic money service of the eBay group).
Once redirected to the PayPal page, you will be asked for your credit card number, expiration date, and CVV2/CVC2 code (3-digit code on the back of the credit card).
When you have finished entering this information you will need to click on “Pay Now.”
On the screen, as soon as the PayPal service has checked the validity of your credit card and credited the donation to UNBEATABLES, you will see a message of successful transaction that you can print as a confirmation of successful payment.
UNBEATABLES, after recording the successful crediting of the donation, will send you an e-mail message thanking you and informing you that the transaction was successful.
How does the transaction for credit card donations take place?
After filling out the form on the UNBEATABLES site with just your biographical data and clicking “Confirm” you will be redirected to a web page generated by a “secure server” of PayPal (an electronic money service of the eBay group).
Only then can you enter your credit card information in the appropriate fields.
This data is not visible or managed by UNBEATABLES, but is used by the service provider (PayPal) for the sole purpose of authorizing the transaction.
Why is a transaction with PayPal safe?
All transactions made with the payment system using UNBEATABLES (PayPal) use a “secure server.”
PayPal uses sophisticated fraud protection technology to block cybercrime, with continuous monitoring of all transactions.
Your financial and personal information is safeguarded by applying automatic encryption to all confidential information that is sent between your computer and PayPal’s servers.
When you access the service pages of the payment system, the browser sets up the Secure Sockets Layer 3.0 (SSL) encryption protocol or later version. This protocol protects the integrity of your data during transfer to PayPal servers, using an encryption key length of 168 bits (the maximum commercially available). Your personal information is then stored and protected effectively, both physically and electronically. To protect your card and bank account numbers even more, servers already protected by firewalls are not directly connected to the Internet.
To be sure you are on a “secure server” check the following
- the presence of a closed padlock design in the bottom or top frame of your browser (the location changes depending on the browser you use to browse);
- that in the Internet address bar of the online donation page, the transmission protocol of the URL be “https” (example: https://www.unbeatables.it/donazione-online and not with “http” (transmission protocol NOT encrypted)
When surfing online, use the latest version of your favorite browser. Newer browsers are designed to defend you against threats from the Web: they have advanced anti-phishing tools built in, making it easier to identify spoof sites.
How does the donation to UNBEATABLES with Paypal account take place?
After entering all your information in the form on the donation page of the UNBEATABLES website, choosing PAYPAL as your donation method and clicking “Confirm” you will be automatically sent to a PayPal “secure server” checkpoint page.
On the PayPal Checkpoint page you will be asked for your PayPal account login information.
Once you have entered those details you can proceed with your donation.
On the screen, as soon as the PayPal service has credited the donation to UNBEATABLES, you will see a message of successful transaction that you can print out as a confirmation of payment and at the same time it will send you a confirmation e-mail.
UNBEATABLES, after recording the crediting of the donation, will send you an e-mail to thank you and inform you that the transaction was successful.
