The CAKE App sends your credit card details via a secure and independent channel. Your credit card information is not stored by us, instead we use validated Level 1 PCI DSS Compliant Service Provider called Braintree.
Braintree is now owned by Paypal and is used by many other trusted services such as Uber and AirBNB.
When you enter your credit card details through the CAKE App, we pass that securely through a modern encryption layer from your phone to our system.
This information is then securely passed on to Braintree who stores the details in their encrypted vault.
Braintree provides us with a unique, anonymous token corresponding to your credit card, which we use as a reference to facilitate payments.
By using this method we never log or store your credit card or CVV number (the 3 digit number on the back of the card).
This means even if our server is compromised, your credit card number could never be obtained.
The password you use to log into your account is also encrypted which means it can never be read directly by anyone.
The CAKE system runs on the same server infrastructure as Amazon and many other trusted sites which ensures the highest level of security.
All communication between the CAKE App and our system is performed over a secure connection.
We recommend your phone is kept secure and locked with a pin code, however, in the event that it gets stolen, the thief would only be able to use the app in CAKE bars and restaurants.
In this instance you can contact us to have your CAKE account temporary blocked to prevent any fraudulent use.
