Security is a Top Priority
We understand that you are concerned about on-line giving security. We, along with other key e-Commerce sites, maintain that e-Commerce is safer than everyday credit card purchases. Because we want you to be comfortable shopping online, we have taken steps to ensure that every VGM powered website requires a secure server utilizing Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
What security is in place?
When you are entering and viewing Online Giving information you are using secure servers. All of your information is encrypted (in 128 bit encryption) prior to being transferred and sensative stored information is encrypted in our database. There is no stronger form of protection than encryption and by doing this, we eliminate the possibility that someone might "tap" the line and extract your personal data from it.
What is 128- bit encryption?
128-bit encryption is 300 septillion times stronger than standard encryption. Browsers with standard 40 and 56-bit encryption make available billions of possible keys. 128-bit encryption means that there are 2128 billion possible keys to your information and every time you access our servers the key is changed. 128-bit SSL encryption has never been broken and according to RSL Labs, it would take a "trillion-trillion years" to crack the code using today´s technology.
Why do I hear about increased credit card fraud on line?
The increased fraud is due to the ease of using stolen credit card numbers on line, NOT stealing credit card info. For example, "People don't think twice about handing their credit card to a total stranger in a restaurant. When you give your credit card to that person, he/she has the opportunity to "take notes" and could then use the "stolen" information anonymously on line without a physical card.)
This is the fraud you hear about, NOT the stealing of credit card info through on-line use.When you use your credit card online, you can be assured that it is extremely safe!
