Payments and security

The HCV Assessor Licensing Scheme (ALS) website uses 2048-Bit SSL encryption so the information and documents you send us will automatically encrypted while in transit between your computer and our server. While we make every reasonable effort to make sharing information with us as safe as possible, please be aware that no information sent over the internet is entirely risk-free. (Please note that all use of this website is subject to acceptance of our Terms of Use. Additionally, if you apply for and/or participate in the HCV Assessor Licensing Scheme through our site, our HCV Assessor Licensing Scheme, our Terms and Conditions will apply to such an application and/or participation.)

Payments made to the ALS are handled by PayPal, which accepts most major credit cards, selected debit cards as well as payments via a PayPal account. You will be taken to a secure page outside of our website to make a payment, and will be redirected back to our website after the payment is completed. We do not collect or store any information about your credit or debit card in our own servers. For more information about PayPal’s security and their terms and conditions, please visit their website. No payments will be recorded or processed without your prior approval.

No ALS services will be provided until your payment has been completed. When paying, you undertake that you are an authorized user of the credit card, debit card or PayPal account used. If you are not the cardholder listed on the credit or debit card, or the owner of the PayPal account, please do not make any payments. The ALS will report any instances of credit or debit card fraud to the corresponding authorities. In assessing your request for our services, we may use your information for the purposes of the prevention and detection of fraud. If you have any problems with payments please contact secretariat@hcvnetwork.org immediately.
