Online Donation Security:
All online donations are processed through Community First Foundation. Community First Foundation has established and maintains reasonable security procedures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your personally identifiable information. They use a variety of industry- standard security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. When you use their forms to donate through ColoradoGives.org, their website uses Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) encryption. SSL/TLS is a generally accepted protocol that encrypts all communication between your web browser and the site you’re viewing to prevent third parties from eavesdropping or tampering with your donation information.
Common browsers, such as Internet Explorer, make it obvious when information is being passed in a secure manner by using the prefix https:// in the URL or displaying a padlock somewhere in the browser window.
ColoradoGives.org uses a third party SSL/TLS Certificate provider. The level of encryption is determined by your web browser, your computer’s operating system, and the SSL/TLS Certificate.
They then use Braintree, https://www.braintreepayments.com/, and Authorize.net, http://www.authorize.net/, to process payment information. You may learn more about their security practices by visiting their websites.
Changes to your information:
Please contact the SOS Outreach to review the personal information that we have on file and to request changes to your information. SOS will honor all requests for information adjustments.
