PCI DSS Compliance
Tikes Bikes is hosted on Shopify which uses a PCI Compliant shopping cart. This is the same level of security as Amazon.com.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organizations that handle credit card and debit card information. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around credit card data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure.
There are six categories of PCI standards that must be met in order for a merchant to be deemed compliant:

- Protect Cardholder Data
- Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
- Implement Strong Access Control Measures
- Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
- Maintain an Information Security Policy
