Protecting Personal Information
When you give StartingBloc Personal Information, we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely. StartingBloc uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving sensitive visitor data via the Site. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, StartingBloc cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems, and to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we have collected. When you make on-line donations, these transactions are handled by a third party to which we link and StartingBloc does not see or take possession of your credit card information. Therefore, StartingBloc disclaims any responsibility for such credit card information and other information handled by third parties.
