How do we protect personal information?
Each time a payment or other transaction is required, we use an external PCI-compliant payment gateway (PayPal) to handle sensitive information like credit card numbers, and billing information. We do not store or handle any payment information on our website. Because our website does not handle payment information, we do not use vulnerability scanning to PCI standards. However, we regularly use malware scanning software on our website to identify malicious code.
We use a variety of security measures when a website user submits or accesses their information. Personal information is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Further, all payments and transactions are processed through a PCI-compliant gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our web servers.
