Security & Reliability
Security and reliability of the platform and payments are paramount at Spendenaktion.
SSL: The security of the Spendenaktion platform is guaranteed by a so-called SSL certificate. SSL literally stands for Secure Sockets Layer which means that a secure layer is placed between a server and an internet browser. With SSL, confidential data is sent encrypted so that it cannot be intercepted. A website is secured by SSL if a small lock appears before the URL in the address bar of your browser.
PSD2: The security of the payments is guaranteed because we work together with Mollie, one of the best-known payment service providers (PSP) in Europe. Mollie holds a PSD2 license issued by The Dutch Central Bank. PSD2 is an abbreviation for the term Payment Services Directives 2. In addition, all payment methods comply with SCA guidelines.

Reliability: Spendenaktion only allows legitimate fundraisers to be placed on its platform. Fundraisers suspected of being illegal and/or of malicious intent will be investigated and removed if necessary. Besides monitoring this strictly ourselves, every visitor can report abuse. This way the crowd/the community also keeps a careful watch on the fundraisers. We take abuse reports seriously and investigate reported fundraisers for legitimacy. In addition, all fundraisers must comply with the conduct guidelines as stated in our terms and conditions, otherwise they will be removed.
