Your Credit Card Security

Keeping your data safe

We use Cardpointe to process reservation payments. They recently announced a PCI platform upgrade in collaboration with their partner, SecureTrust. This upgrade will improve your Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) validation and reporting.  At Coastal Waves Vacations, safeguarding your data and meeting compliance needs is paramount.


The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements intended to ensure that all companies that process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. It was launched on September 7, 2006, to manage PCI security standards and improve account security throughout the transaction process. An independent body created by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB, the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) administers and manages the PCI compliance rules and guidelines.
