How to properly phrase this sentence


Because PaymentX stores the user's credit card details for you and sends your server a token to charge the card, if you use our SDK, your PCI compliance scope is greatly reduced compared to the case when your servers were handling the card details directly. 


What's the best way to phrase the sentence above? I know an english rule is to never start a sentence with Because.

Though many people have been taught to never start a sentence with a conjunction, it is not really a rule. 


The biggest problem with your sentence is that it is a run-on sentence.  You are trying to fit too many thoughts into one sentence.  Break it down into separate sentences.  What does it do, how does it do that, and why is that a good thing?
