Three-digit validation code

When you order from Cookbooks.com.au, you will be asked for your credit card number and expiry date. You will also be asked for a three digit validation code. The validation code is a three-digit number on the back of the card. The code is a new feature, that provides merchants with an 'extra' layer of verification, especially when you use your card to make purchases on the internet, over the phone or via mail order.

The code is unique
The three-digit validation code is unique to your card. It is not embossed, like your card number, or electronically saved in your card's magnetic strip, so it's very difficult for fraudsters to get the number electronically or from a card imprint. When you provide the validation code to a merchant via the internet, over the phone or on a money order, the merchant has additional proof that you have the card in your possession when the transaction is made.

Where is the code?
The code is printed on the signature panel on the back of your card. The full number is quite long but you only need to provide the last three digits when requested.

Anonymity

Cookbooks.com.au
 customers have the right to remain anonymous except in circumstances where personal information is required to complete a credit card or account transaction. Cookbooks.com.au will not disclose the sender information to the recipient unless specifically requested to do so by the customer.

Privacy in email

In email communications, there has always been, and always should be, an expectation of privacy between the sender and the intended recipients of a message. Privacy is compromised, however, if personal information or private email content is shared with parties other than the sender and intended recipients without their consent. Cookbooks.com.au does not share or reveal email content or personal information with third parties. Email messages remain strictly between the sender and intended recipients.
