SECC Security & Privacy Statement

Your Privacy Is Important To Us
We know how important personal privacy is to you. We recognize that you have an interest in how we collect, retain, and use information about you and your relationship with us. Our systems and policies have been designed to provide maximum protection against unauthorized access to sensitive customer information. The following information details what we have done to answer your financial privacy concerns.

Who Has Access to Information
We permit only authorized staff members to have access to your information. This access enables our staff to assist you in completing transactions and resolving any issues that might arise. The charitable organizations that you contribute to receive your name and the amount of your contribution, and if you check the box for acknowledgement, we also provide your address to these organizations.

We are highly selective in choosing vendors and service companies that assist us in providing quality products and services to our customers. We do not sell any customer information to third party marketing companies.

Security Standards
We have established and continually maintain security standards and procedures to help us protect you from unauthorized access to confidential information we may have about you, including through the Internet.

Protecting Website Information
When you visit, you may ask yourself, "Is it really safe to pledge on the Internet?" The answer to that question is YES. While no system is impenetrable, our systems are designed for maximum protection of your information.

For your protection, we use 128-bit encryption for our on-line services. Data is transferred via a "secure session" established with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption technology. This technology protects information as it crosses the Internet by encrypting – or scrambling – your account information so it is virtually impossible for anyone other than you and the SECC to read it. If your browser does support the 128-bit encryption, it will activate SSL automatically whenever you sign onto our on-line services.

Password Protection
Your unique User ID ("UID") and password also protect access to accounts you may have with us and to transactional information through our on-line services. You can also help maintain the security of your financial information by not sharing your UID or password with anyone, by changing your password regularly, and by remembering to sign off of our website when you have finished your session.

We may preserve the content of your e-mail, your e-mail address, and our response so that we can more efficiently handle any questions you may have and also to meet legal and regulatory requirements.
