OUR COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY

WE HAVE APPROPRIATE PHYSICAL, ELECTRONIC AND PROCEDURAL SECURITY SAFEGUARDS TO PROTECT AND SECURE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT.


SECURE SOCKETS LAYERING (SSL)

OUR WEB SITES USE SECURE SOCKETS LAYERING (SSL) TO ENCRYPT YOUR PERSONAL CREDIT INFORMATION, INCLUDING YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER, BEFORE IT TRAVELS OVER THE INTERNET. SSL TECHNOLOGY IS THE INDUSTRY STANDARD FOR SECURE ONLINE TRANSACTIONS. BECAUSE WE USE SSL, MAKING A DONATION ONLINE THROUGH OUR WEB SITE IS JUST AS SAFE AS GIVING YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER OVER THE PHONE.

LIKE MANY OTHER WEB SITES, WE ALSO COLLECT INFORMATION ABOUT SITE TRAFFIC AND USAGE PATTERNS THROUGH THE USE OF COOKIES AND WEB SERVER LOGS. COOKIES ARE SMALL COMPUTER FILES WE TRANSFER TO YOUR COMPUTER’S HARD DRIVE. THESE SMALL TEXT FILES HELP US PERSONALIZE CONTENT ON OUR PAGES AND PROVIDE PROGRAMS LIKE E-COUPONS. YOUR BROWSER SOFTWARE CAN BE SET TO REJECT ALL COOKIES. INSTRUCTIONS FOR RESETTING THE BROWSER TO REJECT COOKIES ARE AVAILABLE IN THE HELP SECTION OF MOST BROWSERS.

OUR USE OF COOKIES ALSO ALLOWS US TO COLLECT AND RETAIN CERTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT A WEB SITE USER, SUCH AS THE TYPE OF WEB BROWSER USED BY OUR CUSTOMER. THIS INFORMATION IS NOT LINKED TO PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION ABOUT A PARTICULAR INDIVIDUAL OR CUSTOMER ACCOUNT, BUT IT IS COLLECTED FROM A PARTICULAR COMPUTER AS THE USER MOVES THROUGH A WEB SITE.

REVIEWING OUR WEB SERVER LOGS AND VISITORS’ USE OF OUR SITE HELPS US TO STATISTICALLY MONITOR HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE USING OUR SITE AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE. ONLY AUTHORIZED CENTER PERSONNEL AND AGENTS HAVE ACCESS TO THE WEB SERVER LOGS AND COOKIE UTILIZATION DATA COLLECTED BY US. THESE EMPLOYEES ARE HELD TO STRICT CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES.
