Security

The KCCA and CAMIS Inc. have taken every precaution to safeguard your personal information and ensure that it is used appropriately.

Credit Card Transaction Security has been implemented to ensure the safety of your reservation and personal and credit card information through the use of certificates and multiple methods of data encryption such as Secure Socket Layers.

Certificates

CAMIS Inc. uses certificates on its website to increase security and to demonstrate that your reservation transaction is safe. Certificates are digital documents that authenticate individuals or organizations. Certificates are typically used to generate confidence in the legitimacy of a certificate holder. They allow verification that we are who we say we are (service provider CAMIS Inc.). Certificates are digital signatures that protect public keys from forgery, false representation, or alteration. Certificates are issued by a certifying authority willing to vouch for the identities of those to whom it issues certificates.

Secure and Encrypted Communications

Secure Socket Layers are a method of encrypting and decrypting your data transmissions over the Internet to our site. It ensures that no unauthorized parties can "steal" or "see" your data as it makes its way to our site. This is done by scrambling the data into unrecognizable bits that only KCCA and CAMIS Inc. can unscramble on its site based on a secure "digital key".
