Online Payment SecurityCatholic Charities of Oregon accepts payments for donations through our website. We make every reasonable effort to protect the safety and security of your online transaction; however we cannot and do not guarantee such safety or security. We use high-grade encryption and the “https security protocol” to communicate with your browser software. We believe this method to be the industry standard security protocol at the time we adopted it, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send to us.
We use the vital piece to internet security called as SSL technology (Secure Socket Layer) Easy to detect, you will know you are on a secure web page if the web address begins with “https” rather than “http” and a padlock icon appears in the status bar at the bottom of your browser. Always look for these cues before entering sensitive information such as your credit card information. SSL uses a pair of asymmetric “keys” for encryption and decryption — one a public key and the other a private key. Essentially, data is locked with one key and unlocked with another. A string of numbers and letters is randomly generated by the encryption key and accompanies each piece of secured information. A decryption key is used when it reaches its destination, thereby securing information in transit.
