Is Credit Card Information Secure?
We care about the safety and security of your transaction. We use encryption and the https security protocol to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you sent to us. Companies we work with to process credit card transactions also use high grade encryption and security protocols. Contributions may also be made by calling 1-302-764-6170.
The Police Athletic League of Wilmington employs error checking procedures to make certain transactions are processed completely and accurately. As necessary, changes are made to improve our systems. And, independent external and internal audits are conducted to ensure the privacy, security and appropriate processing of your information on our site.
In addition to maintaining privacy and security controls over information you share with us, the Police Athletic League of Wilmington also protects the privacy of the youth featured on the website. PALW obtains consent from a parent or guardian prior to posting images on the website.
