Submitting Your Credit Card Number
When you submit your credit card number to purchase merchandise from our online Museum Shop, we offer the use of a secure server. If you choose to use the secure server, the secure server software (SSL) encrypts the credit card information you submit before it is sent to us.

Protection of Minors
We are especially concerned about protecting children's privacy. We hope parents are involved in children's Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are providing personal information on line. We specifically ask children to get their parents' permission before providing any information on line - at our site or any other site - and recommend parents always be involved in those decisions. Most importantly, when children do provide information through the MOCA GA web site, it is only used to enable us to respond to the writer, and not to create profiles of children.
