Security Policy

All response forms requesting confidential information (such as credit card numbers) on John Brown University's web site use "Secure Sockets Layer" or "SSL." This technology is designed to make using your credit card on the Internet as safe as possible.

The SSL technology depends on secure Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) which are certified by an authority such as VeriSign. Secure URLs always begin with "https://" (not "http://"). If you use a browser that recognizes SSL (including Netscape, Internet Explorer, or AOL version 3+, among others), you will be notified that you are on a secure page. Any information you enter on such a page is encrypted, sent over the Internet in encrypted form, and de-encrypted at our server.

If your browser doesn't support SSL technology, you will receive an error message when trying to access our SSL page.

Once we receive your credit card information, it is accessible to only a small number of trusted JBU staff.
