DATA SECURITY

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information and honoring your choices for its intended use. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we strive to maintain physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards. Examples of our security measures include: (i) physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards; (ii) sophisticated security monitoring tools; (iii) documented security policies; (iv) use of strong encryption (e.g., SSL) by our donation payment processor for credit card transactions; (v) restricted access of personally identifiable information; and (vi) periodic security audits.

Internally, data is stored on secured servers. Our staff and volunteers are educated about the importance of safeguarding your information and we are committed to holding them accountable for protecting your confidentiality. However, such precautions do not guarantee that our Website is immune to all security breaks. There is no such thing as 100% safe Internet. We make no warranty, guarantee, or representation that the use of our Website is protected from viruses, security threats, or other vulnerabilities or that your information will always be secure.

Whenever we permit an external third party to access your personal information, appropriate procedures are followed to help ensure that such information is used only for authorized purposes and by authorized persons in a manner consistent with the choices constituents have made under this Privacy Policy, and that the security, integrity and privacy of the information is maintained. While we will employ procedures to help ensure that your information is only used for authorized purposes as described above, we cannot make any guarantees with respect to the actions or policies of such third parties.
