Security & Privacy
Secure Ordering

The Foundation takes your privacy very seriously.  We use the 128-bit Secure Socket Layer protocol to protect the security of your online order information.  SSL technology encrypts your order information to protect it from being decoded by anyone other than the Foundation.

We do not store your credit card information at the Foundation and we take important measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized parties.  We limit access to your personal information to select employees and we use only third party service providers that share our privacy standards.

Most browsers will show a lock icon in the bottom status bar on secure pages.  This icon will be displayed on the Foundation Store checkout page that requests your personal credit card information.   In addition real-time information regarding the authenticity of the Foundation Store's billing information page is provided via Comodo by doing a mouseover on the red Comodo Authentic and Secure logo in the lower right hand corner of the page.
