Click & Pledge, our online credit card service uses
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption so that your
personal information cannot be read as it passes over
the Internet. You can tell you are using the Secure
Socket Layer encryption when a gold or blue padlock
appears in the corner of your Netscape or Microsoft
browser. SSL keeps others from seeing your personal
information by scrambling it so that only your Web
browser and the server of our Web site can decipher it.
In addition, your online password adds another layer of
security to your guest profile. These measures make it
very unlikely that your credit card information will be
compromised online. However, in the event of an
unauthorized use of your credit card, notify your credit
card provider or issuing bank in accordance with its
reporting rules and procedures. You are protected by
regulations that cover credit card purchases and limit
your liability to a maximum of $50 in charges.
