All new merchant accounts and Service Provider changes, involving credit card data, must be approved by the PCI DSS Compliance Team and Business Services prior to contractual agreement(s) being executed.

Contractual agreements must include specific Contract Language PCI regarding credit card data and must adhere to the Middlebury College Contract Policy

Third parties, with whom cardholder data is shared, are contractually required to adhere to the PCI DSS requirements and to acknowledge that they are responsible for the security of the cardholder data which they transmit, process, store or can affect the security thereof.

Service Provider Requirements

Potential Service Providers must meet the requirements noted on the New Service Provider page. The PCI Compliance Team is tasked with the the responsibility of vetting Service Providers that have a payment card component, or that can impact the security of payment card data. The PCI Compliance Team’s goal is to maintain Middlebury’s level of compliance, reducing risk to the institution.
