In a word: yes.
We use industry-standard SSL (secure socket layer) technology to protect your information and provide a safe and secure environment for online donations.
PayPal uses Secure Sockets Layer technology to encrypt all data submitted to and from our donations web page. SSL renders donors’ personal information, including credit card information, unreadable to any outsiders.
SSL is supported by all major web browsers, including Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. (To find out if your browser is connected to a secure transaction server, look for a locked gold padlock in the lower right-hand corner of your IE or Firefox browser.)
Additionally, your personal information will be stored on PayPal’s servers, which are heavily guarded, both physically and electronically. To further shield your credit card numbers, PayPal does not directly connect its firewall-protected servers to the internet.
Open Minds Foundation respects the confidentiality of its supporters and we do not lend, rent or sell our lists of donors at any time.
