Terms and Conditions

We recognise the importance of privacy and security to your Internet shopping experience.


Security is one of our highest priorities. The Cycletreads on-line store uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology for your protection. Important information that you enter such as such as credit card details are encrypted so other computers are unable to make sense of it, thus increasing web site security.

Credit Card Security

When you have entered your purchase requirements, your credit card details are entered via a 128 bit SSL secured web page. This enables high security and the minimum delay for your order. For Credit Cards not issued in New Zealand, additional checking may be required.

What is the Credit Card Identification Code (CIC)?

The CIC code was introduced by various credit card issuing organisations in order to help protect against credit card fraud in automated transactions like e-commerce.

Previously a merchant dealing with a customer across the Internet or on the telephone was unable to verify whether the customer truly had the credit card.

A person placing an order could give stolen or pirated credit card information that was fraudulently obtained from a receipt, monthly statement or some similar document. The CIC code is intended to reduce this type of credit card abuse.

The CIC code is a series of digits (generally a number) generated by the institution that issues the credit card. The digits do not appear in the card's magnetic stripe or in the card's embossed (raised) print. Instead, the digits are printed on the card using standard printing technologies that are intended to be read by human eyes rather than automatically by machines.

The CIC code is not printed by the merchant, on invoices, receipts or on any other document that could be misappropriated. Thus, banks will not print the CIC code on any customer statement, reducing the value to criminals of statements stolen from the mail.

The goal is to make copying the magnetic stripe or document theft a worthless activity. At the same time, a merchant accepting payment by credit card can be better assured that the customer actually has the credit card available (to provide the CIC code). This does not guarantee, naturally, that the customer is actually the owner of the card.

The CIC code has been optional since April 2001 and became mandatory for electronic transactions in some regions starting from October 2001. After the CIC code is enabled for a merchant, financial institutions expect that the merchant will always obtain the CIC code.

Locating your Credit Card Identification Code (CIC)

For Visa and Mastercard: The CIC is the 3 digit number at the end of the 16 digit printed card number, located on the back of the card. In some cases you may see only the last 4 digits of your card number with the additional 3 digit CIC following. For Amex: The CIC is the 4 digit number printed above the ending digits of the embossed (raised) card number on the front of the card.

If you have difficulty locating your card identification code, you may wish to call your credit card company for assistance.
