Notice of Privacy Practices
ONLINE DONATIONS AND PURCHASES
If you make an online donation to, or purchase material from, HealthQ, you will be asked for your credit card information. Our donation and purchase pages are stored on a secure server (evidenced by https://healthq.org/) that is designed to protect sensitive information. After you click “submit”, your information is encrypted before being sent to HealthQ.
HQ’s third-party vendors employ SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry-standard.
The information you provide is used only to process donations or materials sales and will not be disclosed, sold, traded, or rented to any other third party.
