It is highly unlikely that any of your personal data has been compromised. All
donations are processed by PayPal through their payment gateway Payflow Pro as
a way to securely process online credit card transactions. In addition, our
tech team does regular security checking to verify that everything stays

Our donation portal (the page where you entered the donation amount) and our
Thank You page (after you had completed your donation) do not collect any
personal information and therefore do not need to be secure. However, the page
where you entered your credit card number and billing information is secured
with industry-standard 256-bit encryption.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any further questions or
comments, please feel free to contact us at
