Credit Card Purchases
Our banking providers process your credit card using secure sockets layering (SSL). SSL is a method of ensuring that information submitted through your Web site is secure and cannot be accessed by unauthorized users. When a site offers an SSL-secured form, the information submitted via that form (typically credit card information) is encrypted* using a special certificate key and then decrypted with another key after it has been transmitted. When users access a site secured with SSL using their browser, a symbol displays in their browser windows indicating that the site is secure.
*Encryption is the translation of data into a secret code and is one of the most effective way to achieve data security. To read an encrypted file, you must have access to a secret key or password that enables you to decrypt it. Unencrypted data is called plain test; encrypted data is referred to as cipher text.
By using your credit card for your purchase, you agree to pay the amount charged for that purchase, you agree that you are over 18, and you agree to provide truthful information regarding the card and your name and information.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Highlands Playhouse, aka Highlands Community Theatre Inc.; its employees, contractors, officers, agents and directors from all liabilities, claims, and expenses, including attorney’s fees, that arise from your use of this site or any services or products from this site. We reserve the right to revise this policy at our discretion. Please check back on this site as this policy may be revised from time to time without notice to you.
