PRIVACY AND SECURITY CONCERNS MAKE CANADIANS FEARFUL OF PURCHASING ON-LINE

Source: PrivaTech

Posted on August 12, 2003

      A recent study by Ipsos-Reid indicates that many Canadians are fearful about what's going to happen with their credit card information when buying products or services on-line.

      So worried are Canadians about security, that only 42 per cent of Web users in Canada have ever made a purchase on-line, compared with 75 per cent of their counterparts in the United States.

      The study results show that 60 per cent of Canadians are very concerned about the security of e-commerce computer databases that house their credit card numbers, and 57 per cent worry that their credit card data will be intercepted as it flows from their computers to the e-tailer.

      The prevailing sense that things are insecure on-line should make e-tailers and credit-card companies alike take more of a proactive approach to alleviating consumer concerns.
