Note: To set up and use direct card payments, you must have a role assigned to you that gives you editing permissions for Patients, Invoices, and Questionnaires. For more information on roles, see here.

Secure storage of card details

Understanding how client card details are securely stored is crucial for ensuring both compliance with data protection regulations and maintaining client trust. This article provides detailed information on how we handle and store client card information securely.

Collection and Storage of Card Details

Card details are not stored on Semble, instead they are securely stored by Stripe, and we only use tokens provided by Stripe to perform transactions. While the clinic does not store card details, they can instruct payments on patient's cards, as per the clinic's T&Cs.

The actual credit card numbers never reach our servers. Instead, Stripe processes and stores the card details on their secure servers. Stripe then provides us with a secure token representing the card details. This token is what we use to perform transactions, ensuring that sensitive card information is never exposed or handled by our system.

Compliance with Data Protection Regulations

Stripe complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), which is the industry standard for securely handling credit card information. This compliance ensures that all card transactions are conducted in a secure environment and that card details are protected according to the highest security standards.
