The safety and security of the funds in your account and your personal information is our top priority.

Here are some questions that you should ask.

Are my funds and personal information secure?

Yes. Trust, security and confidentiality are cornerstones of our service at Intrade. Our systems hold your account data in tightly secured data centres and we use industry standard encryption systems. Customer funds are held in designated bank accounts with banks in Ireland, and are held separate to Intrade's own corporate funds.

Customers who deposit greater than $50,000 can request us to open a specific bank account in their name and will receive interest on their balance. Contact for further details on this service.

I want to withdraw some money. How can I do this?

You simply go to the My Account page and select the method of withdrawal you wish to use. All withdrawals must be requested online to minimize the chance of unauthorized withdrawal requests.

How much can I withdraw?

You can withdraw your total available fund balance at any time.

What type of encryption technology do you use?

We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Once you are logged in, we use 128 bit secure HTTP (https) for transmission of all private information between your PC and Intrade. Encryption technology ensures that any data passing between us cannot be snooped. We use security certificates from recognizable authorities.. Your browser will display a padlock in the status bar whenever you are in an https encrypted transmission.

How secure are my bank details?

Intrade takes your security very seriously and consequently we ensure that all sensitive information is kept encrypted on our customer database. We do not keep a digital copy of the entire account number of your bank, credit card intact, hence the requirement for you to type in the last 4 digits when you elect to add or use a card for payment. All transmissions between Intrade and our card payment processor partners are private and issued over SSL.

What user account authentication do you use?

We use a combination of Username and Password for user authentication. For security reasons, you will automatically be logged off after a period of inactivity.
