About our handling of credit card payments
Online credit card processing is completed through our secure and private credit card vendor, Authorize.Net. Our online payment forms for memberships, seed sale purchases, donations and special events are hosted at our domain, sawmillriveraudubon.org. From these forms, visitors are then linked to Authorize.Net's secure hosting where they are prompted to enter credit card payment information (credit card number and expiration date).
We do not store credit card numbers and expiration dates in any manner in our office. After processing payments, we promptly and carefully shred any paper documents we receive with this information on it.
