OUR PRIVACY POLICY: At Great Western Reserve, we understand the necessity and importance of protecting your privacy. To this end we take every precaution to keep whatever personal information you share with us confidential and secure. All credit card and/or banking information is transmitted through a Secured Socket Layer (SSL) which is the most protective technology used on the Internet today. Our online store, store.gwrcfundraising.com (“our website”), will never allow your information to be used by any other company or organization whatsoever. You may be assured of our continual efforts to earn and retain your trust. We want your experience with our website to be a worry-free, hassle-free, long-term relationship.

Security Issues:
SSL Certificate Our site is protected with a state of the art SSL Certificate. This SSL certificate ensures your private information such as name, address, credit card information and so forth is encrypted with a 256-bit encryption key before being sent over the Internet. According to Wikipedia, this means anyone snooping on communication between the web server and your browser would spend a billion-billion years attempting to crack this information on the best computers currently in existence. Bottom line, your personal data is safe! Trustwave Websites that collect credit card information are required by merchant banks to be scanned on a regular basis and correct any issues found to remain in what is called “PCI Compliance”. Our website is scanned monthly by an organization called “Trustwave” and when issues are found, they are taken care of immediately. Trustwave helps insure our website is safe and has not been tampered with or monitored by outside sources, this in turn, keeps your data safe.

Childrens’ Privacy
Protecting childrens’ privacy is especially important to us. It is our policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. We recommend that children ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to us, or to anyone else online, and will not sell products to anyone under the age of 18.

If our information practices change, we will post the policy changes on our site to notify you of these changes.
