In both cases of payment by credit card, whether online or via the Subscription Department of @uctionspres , this banking data is then encrypted by service providers, certified PCI-DSS through its own services. This is an international security standard whose objectives are to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of cardholder data and so secure the protection of card and transaction data. In the event that the Subscriber does not want their Subscription to be tacitly renewed, @uctionspress does not possess and does not keep the said data, their collection and processing being governed by the conditions specific to the Ingenico payment service provider.
In the context of an automatic renewal of the Subscription: @uctionspress keeps an encrypted version of the banking data to be able to ask its payment service provider for a payment on the anniversary date of the Subscription. The encrypted version is the identifier that allows the Ingenico service provider to request payment.
The Subscriber warrants to @uctionspress that it has the necessary authorisations to use the method of payment chosen by them, during validation of the Subscription Form.
Only the Subscriber is responsible for payment by credit card. @uctionspress is not responsible for payment issues related to operation of the e-commerce service. It cannot be held liable for fraudulent use of the means of payment opted for.
The Subscriber may also pay the amount of their Subscription by transmitting an RIB (banking details) to @uctionspress with a debit authorisation. However, this banking information is only kept for the time it takes to make the transaction.
Payments made by the Subscriber, regardless of the method of payment used, are only considered final after actual receipt of the amounts due by the Subscriber to @uctionspress. No additional costs, exceeding the costs incurred by @uctionspress for using a means of payment will be charged to the Subscriber.

However, when the delivery address entered by the Subscriber is in a geographic area that allows delivery by Carrier, @uctionspress sends a mail to the Subscriber proposing this second delivery option.
