New World Encyclopedia: Privacy policy

From New World Encyclopedia

Your privacy is very important to us. We appreciate our readers and understand the value of protecting your rights and making your on-line experience secure. We hope to address all of your concerns through this list of privacy-related Frequently Asked Questions.

Trust Verification

The New World Encyclopedia website is using a security certificate issued by CloudFlare, Inc., one of the largest networks in the world. While browsing New World Encyclopedia you are connected through a secure socket layer (SSL).

What is a secure site?

Before completing a transaction on any website, you should make sure it is a Secure Site. Being on a Secure Site means you are connected under the cloak of SSL security. You can tell if you are on a Secure Site if you see a padlock or key somewhere along the bottom of your browser window. If the lock is closed or if the key is unbroken, you are communicating in a secure mode.

What is SSL and how does it protect my privacy?

We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology for mutual authentication, data encryption and data integrity—all to ensure secure transactions for our customers. SSL is the security protocol to encode sensitive information, such as your credit card number. SSL creates a shared digital key, which only lets the sender and the receiver of the transmission scramble or unscramble information. To everyone else, even the servers relaying the message, the SSL transmission is practically indecipherable.
