Our website uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certified by a Equifax Secure Inc. (which is provided by Baytides Management Inc.), an industry standard security protocol, and on top of that your credit card information is being encrypted using PGP (Pretty Good Privacy). When you place your order, you will connect with our secure server. SSL sends this information "encrypted", changing all the information that you send back into a code that is extremely difficult to decipher. In fact, to date there has not been a single documented case of fraud involving the interception of a credit card number transmitted via a secure server over the Internet! PGP encrypts your credit card information on top of that: only The Friends of Algonquin Park will have access to it.
It is important to understand, that the "regular" e-mail information is not sent encrypted. We strongly recommend to use only secure ordering processes to transmit your important personal data, such as credit card information!
The Friends of Algonquin Park never sells, rents or shares customer lists. Any and all information of a personal nature concerning our customers always remains confidential. We guarantee it.
