Encryption

County of York applications or web features that collect personal information or process financial transactions (such as the online pavilion rental system) use Secure Socket Layers (SSL), an industry standard for secure website transactions.

If you do not see one or more of these security indicators, any information you submit could be intercepted. Our SSL-protected applications use 128-bit encryption.
