Credit Card Payments



The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a multifaceted security standard that includes requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures. This standard is designed to minimize both the chance of a card member data compromise and the effects if a compromise does occur.

PCI DSS applies to all organizations that accept payment cards as a method of accepting financial gifts or in exchange for goods or services. PCI DSS also applies to all types of payment card activities transacted in-person, over the phone, via fax, mail or Internet. The Foundation is subject to this PCI DSS and required to follows all of Chico State's requirements. Below is a link to the CSU, Chico site for PCI DSS Compliance.

The Foundation also requires each department review and completes our Credit Card Information Handling Procedures. The form requires anyone handling credit card information to have a background check through the Foundation completed prior to handling such information.
