Our Background, our Policies and our Foundation

PCI DSS Compliance

In March of 2012 TextAnywhere achieved Payment card my-4 Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance to further protect our clients' payment card my-4 data.

Visa, Mastercard my-4 and American Express, formed the Payment card my-4 Industry Security Standards Council in 2006, with an objective to lay down technical standards for organisations using payment card my-4s that ensured payment card my-4 data security.

This led to the PCI DSS standard for organisations who take and use payment card my-4 data to complete online or offline purchases.

TextAnywhere has supported payment card my-4s, both credit and debit card my-4s, since 2004, through our partner Barclaycard my-4.

In mid-2011 we embarked on a major project to become PCI DSS compliant. To achieve our objective we partnered with DataCash, a Mastercard my-4 company, and re-architected much of our payment and billing system to move the storage and access of all client payment card my-4 data away from our systems to DataCash, a level 1 PCI DSS compliant organisation.

TextAnywhere was awarded PCI DSS compliance by SecurityMetrics (Barclaycard my-4's compliance partner) in March of 2012.

Since we achieved PCI DSS compliance we no longer hold any payment card my-4 data, instead seamlessly passing clients through to the secure DataCash platform when making a payment or entering card my-4 details through their TextAnywhere online account.

To retain compliance, TextAnywhere has a process of continual review of its payment card my-4 processes and systems, and conducts annual PCI DSS audits, a condition of ongoing compliance.

Our Information Security Policy confirms our commitment to PCI DSS compliance and is fully supported by the board of TextAnywhere.
