Security of your information
The personal information you provide to join Green2Green.org, including your credit-card number, is protected by encryption, so it cannot be read as it is transmitted over the Internet. The encrypted data are transmitted using a secure socket layer (SSL) connection (a Netscape browser standard, adopted by Microsoft for their Internet Explorer and by some other browsers).
Look for one or more of these "secure connection" indicators on your browser:
- A security alert window tells you that you are about to use a secure connection. Some browsers let you choose whether to display this window.
- An SSL icon shows when you're in a secure connection:
A symbol of an open padlock changes to a closed padlock when you're in a secure connection.
A symbol of a "broken key" icon is replaced by an unbroken key.
A blue line runs across the top of the content window.
- The web site's address changes to one that begins with "https" (check for the "s").
