The Embarc website may collect certain information about your visit, such as the name of the Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address through which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the website; the pages that you access while at the website and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site. This information is used to help improve the website, analyze trends, and administer the website.
Control of your personal information
The personal information collected on this website will be used to operate the site and to provide the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized. Except as otherwise described in this statement, personal information you provide on the Web site will not be shared outside of Embarc without your permission. Embarc may send out emails informing you of security issues related to a donation or confirming your requested to donate.
Changes to this statement
We may occasionally update this privacy statement. For material changes to this privacy statement, we will notify you by placing a prominent notice on the home page of our Web site. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect.

Embarc cares about the safety and security of our donors. Accordingly, we have put a number of technological protections in place to ensure that our transaction process is extremely safe and that our donors’ information is secure.
All information provided to Embarc is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Embarc. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information. When buying on any online venue, caution must always be practiced. Protect your credit card information and always ensure that you are using a browser that can use SSL protection. Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla, and Opera all fulfill this requirement.
