Yes. EventAvenue uses secure servers throughout. Contrary to media myth, computer-to-computer transactions using secure servers are generally considered very safe indeed - certainly as safe as, or even safer than, transactions which rely on signatures on bits of paper or card details dictated across a potentially open telephone lines. EventAvenue contains a number of features designed for e-commerce security across the Internet.
Combined, these features make EventAvenue many times more secure than other "distant" users of a credit card, such as telephone or mail order and of course, its competitors. EventAvenue adopts stringent security measures to ensure that critically sensitive information, such as your customer's personal information, is protected.
All your exhibitors or attendees credit card Authorizations are done using CITIBANK's Secure Payment Gateway. Your exhibitors or attendees enter all their personal information and credit card details on the secure servers and the same is encrypted before it is transmitted over the Internet to the Acquiring Banks.
Additionally, EventAvenue's server is behind security firewalls to ensure maximum protection of your exhibitors or attendees information. This guarantees that your information is inaccessible to any third party. EventAvenue uses industry-standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Technology, which is used worldwide, for this data encryption.
EventAvenue also follows strict in-house security guidelines for ensuring confidentiality of your exhibitors or attendees information. Since the Payment Gateway application software is maintained at Citibank's secure high-end servers, new payment technologies, standards and features are automatically implemented as they emerge.
Citibank's payment gateway is integrated with risk management component, which empowers them with the ability to control risk effectively. So, without changing your interface, you get the benefits of the latest technologies, which will allow you to stay ahead in the rapidly changing landscape of e-commerce.
The Card Verification Method (CVM) consists of a 3 or 4-digit numeric code that is printed at the back of the credit card along with (after) the credit card number, where the card holder signs in his signature on the card. This additional 3 or 4 digit numeric code is neither embossed on the card nor available in the magnetic stripe. This additional 3 or 4 digit is code is featured / incorporated on all Master Cards and Visa cards issued worldwide. Visa calls this security feature as CVV2 and Master Card calls it as CVC2.
The purpose of CVM is to ensure that the person submitting the transaction is in possession of the actual card, since the code cannot be copied from charge slips / receipts or skimmed from the magnetic band. EventAvenue requests your exhibitors or attendees to provide this numeric code for booking and submits it with the authorization through the Citibank gateway. The card processor (i.e. Visa or Master Card) will then validate the code supplied with the number on record for the specific card, and return a match/no-match response.
EventAvenue uses the most powerful VeriSign secure socket layer (SSL) for encrypting customer data during transmission. To put this into non-technical terms, it would take 340,000,000,000 years for today's fastest computers to crack VeriSign SSL. Click here to verify our certificate.
Visa has developed a new online security feature called Verified by Visa that works with existing Visa cards. With Verified by Visa, consumers can rest assured that using their Visa cards on the Web is just as safe as using it at a local merchant around the corner.
Through the simple Verified by Visa checkout process, Visa card Issuers confirms the exhibitors or attendees identities in real time during transactions.
If you are a card holder then you get a unique password from Visa. Your Verified by Visa password helps ensure that only you can use your Visa card number to book or register online.
You'll enter your password in the Verified by Visa window, your identity will be verified, and the transaction will be completed.
When the consumer clicks "book or register" the software recognizes registered Visa cards and the Verified by Visa screen automatically appears in the exhibitors or attendees browser. The consumer simply enters his/her password and the password is verified.
Verified by Visa improves the security of payment transactions in the electronic commerce environment over open networks. It is designed to increase both cardholder and event manager's confidence in Internet transactions, as well as to reduce fraudulent activity related to the use of Visa payment cards.

Effect & Cause 1: Effective 1 May 2006, "Sponsorship" costs will be liable to service tax in the hands of the sponsor (for example, Pepsi). This is one of the unique tax provisions wherein the service recipient (eg Pepsi) is obliged to pay the service tax rather than the service provider (for information, this is similar to the obligation on insurance companies and asset management companies to pay service tax on the insurance/distribution commission paid to its agents / distributors)."Sponsorship" includes:
Naming an event after the sponsor.
Displaying the sponsor's logo or name.
The Sponsor having exclusive or priority booking rights.
Sponsoring prizes or trophies for competition.
It however, does not include:
Sponsorship of sports events; and
Donations & gifts (only if the recipient is under no obligation to provide anything in return to the Sponsor).
Where Pepsi (or local group entity) acts as a Sponsor as mentioned above, the costs incurred for the same will be additionally liable to service tax at 12.36% in the hands of Pepsi (or local group entity). This will lead to an increase in the sponsorship costs.
As this is a new legislation, Business is requested to consult INM Tax prior to making any sponsorship payments. INM Tax will have to sign off the Expense Schedule before being processed for payment.
INM ODD (FIN OPS) to make sure that service tax on such "sponsorship" costs is paid by HBAP India in the same manner as is being currently paid on "import of services" (for example, service tax on the payment made to Reuters USA). Such service tax payment should be reported by INM ODD to INM Tax on a monthly basis as is being currently done for 'import of services'.
Effect & Cause 2: It has been specifically clarified as a general rule that all 'reimbursements' or 'recovery of costs' made from clients / customers during the course of providing services will also be liable to service tax at 12.36%.
Business should ensure that service tax is also recovered from all costs and expenses billed to (recovered from) the customer. For example, recovery of courier costs, postage and stamp charges, travel, telephone, etc will also be liable to service tax in addition to the fees.
Service tax will be charged to the customers at 12.36% on such 'costs' in addition to that charged on the fees.
Include such reimbursement/recovery as part of the taxable services while reporting the service tax liability on a monthly basis to INM Tax.
