Security of Your Personal Information

All credit card and profile information provided to ESUCP or our Internet software partner, Blackbaud, Inc., is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption using Verisign as a payment gateway. SSL is a proven coding system that allows a browser to automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before it is sent.

ESUCP also protects account information by placing it on a secure portion of the ESUCP Online Network that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of ESUCP. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure and no security system is impenetrable. ESUCP takes commercially reasonable measures to protect your personal information, however ESUCP cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
