On LiveLocal we have worked to ensure that payment and banking information is handled in a secure way, so you can pay safely and feel confident.
The payment handler for LiveLocal is Stripe Inc. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. Read more about Stripe payment security here.
Payment data you enter into your LiveLocal user account is not stored within the LiveLocal website. LiveLocal uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) on its payment page information directly to Stripe without it passing through LiveLocal servers.
This significantly reduces the risk of you or your customers being exposed to a man-in-the-middle attack and means that LiveLocal does not store your information within our own servers. With this level of security and compliance, hosts and guests can feel confident that their payment information is protected and secure.
