Our site: We are certified Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant. This is the highest level of certification for e-commerce stores and involve annual on-site assessments to server sites validating compliance as well as continuous risk assessment.

Our payment processing: We process all our online payments through PayPal - one of the most secure payment gateways available. This means your confidential information is encrypted while in transit from your computer to ours using the highest commercially available encryption (128-bits Secure Sockets Layer protocol). PayPal also keeps all of your payment information on a heavily guarded (both physically and electronically) server. As a final precaution - The Bear Knows also does not store your credit card information on our own servers, so even in the highly unlikely circumstance of a security breach, there's no payment information to steal.
