This personally identifiable information is used to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes and to include you on the Consortium's mailing list if you choose to join it.

Security
We care about the security of your transactions and apply industry-standard practices and technologies to safeguard your credit card information. We use high-grade encryption and the secure https protocol to communicate with your browser software, which guards against interception of the credit card information you give us.

The web servers for the Consortium are located in a locked, secure environment, and computer systems are maintained in accordance with industry standards to secure information.
