– How We Protect Your Information –

Our website has high level security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. Our server is located in a locked, secure environment.

When you contribute online, we use a secure server and SSL to protect your credit card number and other personal information during the transmission. SSL is short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed by Netscape for secure transmission of private information over the internet. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data that is transmitted over the SSL connection. Netscape Navigator, Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers support SSL, and websites use SSL when users transmit confidential information such as credit card numbers. Web pages that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http. SSL uses 128 bit encryption within the United States. For more information on SSL, please visit the Netscape website.

At the Centre County Women’s Resource Center, we are putting forth every effort to ensure the security and privacy of the information that you share with us online. Remember that steps you take to help protect the privacy of your personal information, such as safeguarding your passwords and logging off the website after viewing or submitting personal information, are equally important. If you have broadband access to the internet it is strongly advised to use a firewall.

– Choice/Unsubscribe –

We provide you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us easily and promptly. E-mail us at ccwrc@ccwrc.org. Our unsubscribe requests are processed weekly.

– Correcting Your Information –

If you need to correct the information you have provided to us, please send us an email to ccwrc@ccwrc.org. If you need to change your email address, you can unsubscribe from our mailing list and sign up again using your new information.

In the event this policy is changed in the future we will make a good faith effort to give notice of such changes to interested and effected parties.
