- How we protect your information
Our website has 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 24 hours a day.
When you contribute online, we use a secure server and SSL to protect your credit card number and other personal information during 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 are transmitted over the SSL connection. All current, major 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 and 64-bit encryption internationally. We store important information such as credit cards on servers that are not accessible to the Internet.
We currently utilize Blackbaud NetCommunity for our online contributions. Detailed security information is available from their website.

If you need to correct or update the information you have provided us, please or call us at 612–341–2060 with your new information.
