Frequently Asked Questions

A. ONLINE TRANSACTIONS

  1. Is my information secure?
    Convio, the company responsible for housing and maintaining the MADD Walk Like MADD Website, has made every effort to protect your information. They use industry-standard SSL encryption techniques to make sure that your credit card information, passwords, and personal information travel securely over the Internet.
