Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard Level 1
RingGo's sister company, Cobalt Telephone Technologies, is one of the UK parking industry's largest processors of credit and debit card payments. Information captured during RingGo operations, is encrypted and held in accordance with the highest levels of security.
The processes and procedures used by Cobalt have been accredited by independent assessors on behalf of the payment card industry. This is known as PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry - Data Security Standard) accreditation and all aspects of our UK operations have been accredited to PCI-DSS Level 1. This Europe-wide standard is the highest and most rigorous level of accreditation any UK-based card processing organisation can attain.
