Hello Stephen! This is Megan H. from our Member Care department. Thanks for contacting us through Answers!

I apologize for any concern this may have caused. Our website is secure, and we use 128 bit encryption from Thawte, a Verisign Company, for all online credit card transactions. You can see that it is secure by looking for the lock or by following the directions explained here. If you have McAfee, that could be why this lock did not show up for you. Due to their recent update this weekend, it created a false positive on our website that was causing this to not show up. To alleviate this problem, you can go into your firewall settings, and set our website as an exception.

Please let me know if I can provide any additional assistance or information. You can respond by submitting a new answers as a response in this Q&A, email us at or toll-free at 1-866-783-2980 to speak with a Member Care Specialist.
