Security and E-Commerce
JOGN Online is committed to the security of your transactions. Our secure server enables you to transmit a credit card number to us with confidence. VeriSign issues our secure server certificate.
Some JOGN Online web sites send visitors a cookie (small computer file) that, in most cases, contains a unique serial number. Each time our web server receives a request for a page, it checks to see if the cookie is present — this enables us to determine how much of our traffic is from repeat visitors.
Additional cookies may be sent by JOGN Online web servers to facilitate interaction between your web browser and JOGN Online’s web servers. For example, a cookie will be placed upon registration for a JOGN Online educational symposium, which allows for confirmation and other future contact without re-registration.
