Security with distinction

Mutual trust – this is the devise on which our success and the satisfaction of our customers are built. And have been for more than 100 years. This is why we take the online security of our customers very seriously. Our online shop is tested and approved. That means you're always safe when you buy from us – that’s our guarantee, sealed, signed and delivered.

The advantages for you

 >> 1. Secure data transmission – the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption protocol
 >> 2. Shopping online with your credit card is even more secure with BNT!

1. Secure data transmission – the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption protocol.

We use the most advanced and secure encryption protocol currently in existence, SSL (Secure Socket Layer), for data transfer. This technology offers maximum security, which is why it is also used by banks for data protection in online banking transactions. As a Web user, you do not need to install any additional software. SSL is already integrated in your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera).

SSL ensures that your data (e.g. credit card data) cannot be read or tampered with while being transmitted over the Internet. Moreover, SSL authenticates a Website’s identity. You can see that the data is being transmitted in encrypted form by the locked “padlock” icon in your browser’s lower status bar.

2. Shopping online with your credit card is even more secure!

Two new security programmes are set to make online shopping with your credit card even more secure: MasterCard® SecureCode™ and Verified by Visa. BNT is one of the first online companies to introduce 3D Secure payment. It protects your credit card details from unauthorised use on the BNT Website.

Verified by Visa Mastercard Secure Code

Payment procedure

If this procedure has not been activated for your card, you will have to register once only with your bank. You do this while ordering. No need to order a new card nor download any software!

If your card is already registered, during the order process you will be asked to enter a personal password on the Website of your card issuer in a separate window. The password you enter will be compared with the saved password. Only if all the data exactly coincide will the transaction be authorised.

BNT – shopping online has never been safer!

More information about Verified by Visa authentication

Verified by Visa is a new service that guarantees you additional security when shopping online. Verified by Visa lets you confirm your identity for more protection when shopping online. It’s convenient and you use your current Visa credit card. You register your card just once with your credit issuer and choose a unique personal password.

It’s simple to use: whenever you shop online with a participating merchant, a window provided by your card issuer pops up. Enter your password. Your identity is checked, ensuring that the purchase is genuine.

For more information, contact your card issuer/bank, or go to the Visa Europe Website: shop safely online – worldwide and around the clock!

More information about authentication using MasterCard® SecureCode™

MasterCard® SecureCode™ is a new service from MasterCard and your card issuer which guarantees you additional security when shopping online. No need to ask for a new MasterCard or Maestro® card. You choose your personal code yourself and this is never revealed to the merchant. A private code means additional protection against misuse of your credit or debit card when shopping online.

Each time you shop with your MasterCard or Maestro card on the Website of a participating merchant, a window pops up provided by your card issuer asking you for your personal secure code, in the same way as your bank does with an ATM. The card issuer confirms your identity in seconds and lets you complete your purchase.

For more information about MasterCard SecureCode, visit the Mastercard Website. MasterCard® SecureCode™ - Enjoy even greater security - priceless! or This is how MasterCard® SecureCode™ works!

To offer you the utmost possible security when paying online by credit card, we use the certified payment system, Saferpay.

Saferpay is certified compliant with the international Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). When the card verification number is queried, the cardholder is identified in addition to the card number.
