Tell me a bit more about Credit Card Safety

To borrow a movie from an HOYTS Kiosk machine, you will need to swipe your credit card. We take credit card security very seriously.

Your credit card information is encrypted and then securely processed through the Paypal Secure Payments gateway. You will not need to enter your credit card details on this website to reserve your movie online.

HOYTS Kiosk does not store any credit card information of any kind and will only ever ask for this information under two circumstances. These are:

  • To enable us to deposit a refund for a disputed transaction. To do this, we would require your full credit card number and are only able to deposit this refund back onto the card used to complete the transaction.
  • We may also request the last 4 digits of your credit card. We use the last 4 digits of your credit card as an identification number for you as a customer, for example, when you login to reserve online.

HOYTS Kiosk is certified as PCI compliant (which is geek-speak for really secure) and we have the certificates to prove it.

The PCI Security Standards Council was founded by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa, Inc. The PCI organisation’s mission is to enhance payment account data security by driving education and awareness of the PCI Security Standards. You can find out more about PCI compliance and standards here.
