Are your payment processing systems PCI compliant? Yes. ACS Technologies Group, Inc. ("ACST") first became PCI compliant as a service provider on November 15, 2016, and we recertify annually. You may view our PCI compliance status anytime by visiting the VISA Global Registry of Service Providers, or the MasterCard Compliant Service Provider list. Attaining PCI compliance underscores our commitment to keeping the data for all of our Customers secure and private. Additionally, ACST partners with Vanco, a PCI Level 1-compliant card processor to process all payment card transactions securely.

When using a debit or credit card with an eGiving feature, is it secure? PCI Compliance seeks to create a safer environment for accepting payment cards worldwide. Every year ACST (your service provider) and Vanco (your merchant provider) undergo a rigorous PCI audit to certify that systems, policies, procedures, and processes meet compliance.

What is PCI? The Payment Card Industry ("PCI") Security Standards Council was created to establish a uniform set of data security requirements for all national card brands, a.k.a. the PCI Data Security Standards ("PCI DSS"). PCI governs all retail, mail order, telephone order and e-commerce credit card transactions. All organizations that process, store, or transmit payment card data must comply with PCI DSS requirements or risk losing their ability to process credit card payments.
