Credit Card Information

NetCommunity secures your private information using Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") certificates. SSL certificates encrypt all data transmission between your computer and our website. SSL certificates are deployed and trusted by a majority of e-commerce website operators worldwide.

Lincoln Center Theater and Blackbaud Payment Services are also compliant with the rigorous standards established by the Payment Card Industry ("PCI"), a cooperative group comprised of all major credit card issuers.

Your credit card information is encrypted as soon as the transaction is entered into the giving form, and card information is stored in a secure database for a limited time period. This is in compliance with the standards of credit card issuers, as it helps them resolve disputes and protect against fraudulent use of your card. After you enter your credit card information into the online form, only the last four digits are potentially visible to anyone.
