How secure is the information I provided?
The Award Center is committed to securing your personal information. We use technology that is designed for use with secure web servers. Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") technology encrypts your personal information as it is transmitted over the Internet. You maintain the security of your information by keeping your user name, password and other personal information confidential. The Award Center will never request your password. 

We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. 

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. 

What you can do to safeguard your data.
It is recommended that you take the following precautions to safeguard your data:

Use a complex password with unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not disclose your password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password. 

Be aware of increasingly common email scams that may use your email address to contact you and ask for personal or sensitive information. Always be cautious when opening links or attachments from unsolicited third parties. Also know that The Award Center will not send you emails asking for your credit card number, social security number or other personally identifiable information. So if ever asked for this information, you can be confident it is not from The Award Center.
