Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) the Foundation's site, or otherwise provide such information to the Foundation, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL), or securely store or destroy after entry of such information into electronic form, any hard copies of such information. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the personal information we collect. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, or secure storage of hard copies is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
