The Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC goes to great lengths to protect the confidentiality and integrity of any personal information you share with us over the Internet.
We treat personal data such as credit card information as critical assets that must be guarded at all times against loss and unauthorized access. To ensure the security of credit card and personal information, this Web site employs industry-standard security methods, including the Secure Socket Layers (SSL) protocol for the encryption of transmitted data.
Online donations and other financial transactions completed through the Blackbaud Luminate (formerly Convio) powered donation pages on our website are PCI DSS Compliant. PCI DSS is the payment card industry security requirement for entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data, and has been endorsed by all the major card brands — Visa Inc., MasterCard Worldwide, Discover Network, American Express and JCB. PCI DSS Compliance gives consumers the confidence they need to know that organizations accepting electronic payments or donations are doing so in a verified, secure, and consistent fashion. Convio, our software provider for online marketing, fundraising and advocacy, received Level 1 PCI compliance - the highest level validation. This means that the processes, procedures, network configuration and overall environment used to process your financial support of our organization have met the stringent guidelines of a third-party audit and are in compliance with the high standards set by the industry.
In addition, Blackbaud Luminate (formerly Convio) complies with applicable portions of FACTA: the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act and utilizes VeriSign SSL Certificates for the highest level of encryption available. These comprehensive standards are intended to help our organizations proactively protect your account data - a responsibility we take very seriously.
