We don't handle any credit card or other financial data on this web site. When you purchase something through this web site (e.g. a membership renewal or products), the information about what you want, is added to the shopping cart. When you decide to buy the items, your shopping cart data is copied to PayPal, which is where you complete your actual financial transactions. PayPal is responsible for keeping your financial data secure (part of the reason why I, as the webmaster, have to pay a monthly fee for PayPal's services).
So, does the NASG's web site need to be secure? Not explicitly, but nonetheless there are two reasons for why you might want to browse the NASG web site with encryption active:
1. When you log into the "Members Only" section of the web site, your personal information can be retrieved and shown on the site.
2. On a secure web site, no one can see what you are doing, or what you are typing into the web site's forms (e.g. hackers, gov'ts, etc.).
So, we strongly recommend that, even while just routinely browsing, that you use the secure version of the NASG web site. You can do so by using this address:
Note the "s" before the "://". "https://" means you are visiting the secure version; "http://" means that you are visiting the non-secure version.
You may want to update any links you maintain to the site, such as in your web browser's bookmarks or favorites.
We try to make all links to external web site be ones that use the secure version. However, not all sites have a secure version available, in which case we have to use their non-secure version.
