Is My Credit Card Information Secure?
We use a variety of safeguards to protect the security of your credit card transactions. We use the PayPal payment system on our website. PayPal processes all transactions and automatically encrypts your records. PayPal has access controls and network firewalls in place, along with both physical and electronical safeguards and other measures. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us. You can make financial contributions online via the PayPal portal, by postal mail (check), or by calling customer service (317) 870-1050.
How We Use Your Information
Certell will not sell, trade, or share personal information about our donors with anyone else, nor will we send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations, unless a donor has given us specific permission to do so.
If you provide Certell with personal information when you visit our website, we may use that information in our programs and activities. We may enter your name into one of our contact databases so we can contact you to provide information about our programs and events, or request contributions.
