Third Party Intermediaries
We use a trusted credit card processing company for any donation you make to the NFD. The company acts solely on the behalf of the NFD and may not retain, share, store or use personal information for any secondary purposes.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When our donation form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number, etc.), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry-SSL. While on a secure page, such as donation form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just surfing. (To learn more about SSL, follow this link: http://webopedia.internet.com/TERM/S/SSL.html)
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. Only employees who need the information to perform the specific job of actioning your donation request are granted access to personal information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
