Security Policy

Updated: 10-14-2013

Portland Compressor strives to use reasonable commercially available electronic and physical products as well as procedures to protect your personal information while in our control.


Portland Compressor is committed to making Internet shopping safe.
We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption to make transmission of personal information over the Internet as safe as possible. To make our customers as comfortable as possible we chose an Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate. This type of SSL certificate provides "Green Bar Assurance" - the browser (current versions) address bar turns green when visiting a site with an EV certificate, confirming that the site has passed comprehensive identity verification.

About Payment Information


Credit cards

We do not retain complete credit card information for future use. Our online store communicates directly with the card processor via SSL, after the transaction is accepted or denied only the last 4 digits of the credit card number and expiration is stored. Not storing all your card info protects us and protects you. Because of this you will need to enter that information on each transaction. Not much work for greater peace of mind. Those 4 numbers and expiration are retained in our store for about 90 days, in compliance with PCI standards, after which it is deleted.


PayPal transactions are done directly through PayPal. No credit card or bank account information is entered into or retained by our web store.

Though we strive to make your personal information as secure as reasonably possible you should be aware that it is impossible to guarantee absolute security with respect to information sent through the Internet.
