Safety when purchasing on Rakuten:
At Rakuten, we comply with the requirements of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) in protecting your information.
We use the token method of processing credit cards. In this process, the credit card information our customers provide is not stored in our order management system. This makes your payment information inaccessible to anybody working on your order or within our IT infrastructure.
Additionally, when we send your order to one of our Rakuten Sellers, we pass along only what is needed for a seller to process and ship your order. Even refunds are issued though our system without the seller accessing your payment information.
