Is webpay secure?

Yes. The University of South Australia highly values and respects the security and privacy of personal data.  webpay uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to keep your personal information secure.  This security protocol encrypts your personal information so it cannot be copied.  The secure environment is indicated on your browser with the display of a lock or key on the browser status bar.  The display of the secure icon indicates that encryption has been activated.

The University of South Australia has partnered the National Bank Australia to provide a secure and safe environment for credit card transactions.  webpay uses the National Secure Internet Payment Service (NSIPS) to authorise and process your credit card payment.  Once your payment has been approved by NSIPS, you will receive immediate confirmation which you can print and keep for your records.

NSIPS also use the latest SSL encryption technology.  The University of South Australia does not "see" or store your credit card number - all credit card details are handled and stored by the National Australia Bank.

Please note however, that although the University and the National Bank Australia endeavor to protect your personal details, we cannot guarantee the security and integrity of your personal computer or a public computer that you may use to access webpay.  If the computer you are using has been compromised, there is a possibility that the data you enter may be recorded by "spyware", "key logging" or similar programs.  You should ensure that you take reasonable steps to prevent these types of programs from being installed, by having the latest version of anti-virus software, security patches and a personal firewall installed.

For more information on personal computer security, please refer to the CERT web site. If you are concerned about the security of your personal computer you can use computers located in the University's General Purpose Computer Pools, Computer Barns, and "Walk Up" PCs (including those in Campus Central locations).
