Security

We value your trust in providing us your Personal Information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it.

HTTPS or Secure HTTP is an encryption method that secures the connection between users’ browser and your server. This makes it harder for hackers to eavesdrop on the connection. Every day we share our personal information with different websites whether it’s making a purchase or simply logging in. In order to protect the data transfer, a secure connection needs to be created. That’s when SSL and HTTPS come in. Each site is issued a unique SSL certificate for identification purposes. If a server is pretending to be on HTTPS, and its certificate doesn’t match, then most modern browsers will warn the user from connecting to the website. We adhere to best practices for cybersecurity through the implementation of https:// and an SSL certificate for encryption of data transfers.

Save Mount Diablo does not store any payment information on our website or its database. All payment processing is securely transmitted through our 3rd party merchant processor and credit card payment gateway provider (Blackbaud). But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security. In the event of a significant security breach, Save Mount Diablo will take specific measures to notify the public through a variety of communication channels, such as social media, email newsletter, and/or press release.
