Safety & Security
Your Money is Safe & Secure
FDIC & Security
GradSave uses Authorize.net to process every transaction. No credit card or bank account information is ever stored in our servers. Your sensitive information is safe with Authorize.net, the Internet's largest payment gateway service provider, which processes over $75B in annual transaction volume.
Money in your GradSave account is held in an FDIC insured commercial account at Bank of America. This means that your money is guaranteed to be safe between the time you receive it in your GradSave profile and the time you redeem the contributions to your linked 529 college savings plan (or any other state pre-paid plan like Florida Prepaid).
Comodo Positive SSL
GradSave.com uses Comodo Positive 128 bit SSL encryption on every page after you sign up. Any information you provide us is securely handled and confidential data is protected. This provides the strongest encryption available.
From the moment account information leaves your computer to the time it enters GradSave's system all online access is encrypted. GradSave employs some of the strongest forms of encryption commercially available for use on the Web today. During any transaction, our 128-bit encryption turns your information into a coded sequence with billions of possible variations, making it nearly impossible for unwanted intruders to decipher. Additionally, private information collected to verify your identity is stored in an encrypted fashion in our database. Look for a "closed lock" icon in your browser to confirm if encryption is being used on any Web page you are viewing. Any Web address beginning with "https://..." indicates the page you are viewing uses encryption.
GradSave is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), a set of comprehensive requirements that ensure the use of data security measures. We are constantly updating our security to have a secure network, protect your cardholder data and maintain strong access control measures. Your credit card information is safe with us.
In order to prevent any online threats, GradSave is committed to keeping up with and utilizing the latest technology to ensure your account security.
