At ScratchGames.com, personal security and privacy is our top priority. We believe that no gaming experience is complete without top-level security measures that ensure identity privacy and safe storage of your personal information.
That said, we'll explain how we go about creating this environment.
The most important thing today in online gaming is security and privacy. When it comes to your private information (name, address, payment details, etc.,) you need to make sure that the site you are trusting employs only the highest level of encryption and Internet security technology. Does ScratchGames.com do this? Why of course! Let us explain what we offer and why you need it.
We use the same encryption technologies that are used by banks and other financial institutions that work online (SSL 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology). That means, if you feel safe with your bank, you can feel safe with us. Needless to say, this is the top level of online information security available in the world today. We don't spare a dime when it comes to protecting your information and your privacy.
EV Certification is the absolute highest level of Internet security available today. Period. EV is the highest-level SSL certification. SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer and is a special encryption protocol that provides security for online communications. What this means is that all your private data is scrambled, locked, encoded and then locked again in many different layers in order to ensure that nothing can penetrate and access your personal data.
EV stands for Extended Validation. What this means, in a nutshell, is that we at ScratchGames.com had to go through extensive checks and tests in order to prove that we are a trustworthy. In order to obtain an EV certificate, the company must undergo a rigorous series of examinations, documentation verification, and verification of business licensing and incorporation paperwork. Once the company has been verified as established and trustworthy, only then is it given the EV certification.
Only companies with the best reputations are able to receive this certification. Many companies offer SSL protection, as this is something a company can purchase. Today, SSL certification is standard but EV certification is on a much higher level than the standard SSL certificate.
Regular SSL certificates do a great job of protecting information that is sent from the sender (you) to the recipient (the company). However, until EV certification, you never were really sure exactly how trustworthy and established the recipient was. As more and more people "set up show" online, it’s becoming necessary to know how to differentiate between the good guys and the bad guys. Now, you don’t have to "take our word for it" – you can know that we hold an internationally recognized and prestigious certification that clearly states that we are a reputable, trustworthy, legal and well-established company.
