Why is the supplier asking for the Card Security Code and statement address?

The Card Security Code and statement address provides the supplier with additional information with which to decide whether or not they are happy to process the transaction when you are not present. Subject to our approval of the transaction amount, the supplier will still have the option to accept or decline your request, based on the results of the Card Security Code and your address check.
