To protect the confidentiality and security of your credit card and personal information, the Mackinac Center has implemented 256 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Briefly, the SSL software encrypts all your information, and authenticates the Center’s server for decrypting.

To ensure that this is a legitimate secure site using SSL, make sure that:

  1. https:// starts the original URL. (So SSL is encrypting.)

  2. The original URL of the site you are visiting comes from

  3. The Certificate Status is valid.
