Stripe is a payment processor and effectively a credit card vault.

They will take and store your credit card details and then return to iControlWP a secret access key for those details, which, when used with our unique Stripe private access key we may bill you for services we render.

However, at no time does iControlWP ever see or receive your credit card payment details.  Never.

We have elected to allow Stripe, as a dedicated service provider, to securely handle this sensitive information.
