Our Products & Services – PCI Compliance
OpenTech is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding your right to privacy while using and interacting with our automated products. Systems which process payment transactions necessarily handle sensitive cardholder account information.
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) has developed security standards for handling cardholder information in a published standard called the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS). The security requirements defined in the DSS apply to all members, merchants, and service providers that store, process or transmit cardholder data. The PCI DSS requirements apply to all system components within the payment application environment which is defined as any network device, host, or application included in, or connected to, a network segment where cardholder data is stored, processed or transmitted.
OpenTech has most recently completed PCI DSS 3.1 Certificate of Validation as a Level 1 Service Provider, the certification can be viewed at (click here for full document).
The INSOMNIAC Kiosk line of products has also been PA-DSS Certified, the Payment Application Environment has some requirements that you should be aware of if you are an owner of an INSOMNIAC Kiosk (click here for full document).
Accordingly, OpenTech has made available an open letter to our clients stating our responsibilities which can be viewed at (link to document).
