Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

Parsemus Foundation is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. The following statement explains our information-gathering and dissemination practices for our web Site at www.parsemus.org (the “Site”). This policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically. Throughout this policy, “we,” “us,” and “our” will mean Parsemus Foundation.

Parsemus Foundation knows that you care how information about you is used. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.

USE
We value the relationships we have with our users and future users, and we respect their privacy concerns. Parsemus Foundation does not collect your personal information when you visit this Web site.

Parsemus Foundation will not send you any unsolicited information, including email regarding any commercial offers or advertisements at any time.

Parsemus Foundation does not sell, share or distribute personal information of its donors. If you would like to review how Parsemus Foundation collects donor information or if you would like to request a correction to your donor information, feel free to contact us at info@parsemusfoundation.org.

Parsemus Foundation reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

COOKIES
Some web pages created by Parsemus Foundation use ‘cookies’, which are small text files that may be placed on your hard disk for record-keeping purposes. It is essentially your identification card, and cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. It is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. A cookie’s purpose is to tell the server that you returned to that Web page. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify the user’s domain name and host for Internet access; the Internet address of the site from which the user came; the date and time that the user accesses the Parsemus Foundation website and which pages they visit within it; and the user computer’s IP address and information about its operating system, browser and host.

Furthermore, a cookie in no way gives us access to your computer. The use of cookies is an industry standard.

Many major Web sites use cookies to provide useful features for their users. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you’d prefer, you can set yours to refuse cookies. However, you will not be able to take full advantage of a Web site if you do so.

DONATION PAYMENTS
SoapBox Engage is a professional payment processing service that specializes in the needs of nonprofit organizations. SoapBox Engage serves payment pages on our site that are hosted on their PCI-compliant server. They maintain Extended Validation SSL encryption – the most advanced SSL available.

Credit Cards
All credit card payments are processed securely through Braintree, a validated Level 1 PCI DSS Qualified Service Provider. You can verify Braintree’s PCI Level 1 DSS compliance by reviewing Visa and MasterCard’s list of PCI Compliant Service Providers. Go to Visa’s site at visa.com/splisting/searchGrsp.do and search for Braintree Payment Solutions, LLC. Braintree is on MasterCard’s Compliant Service Providers’ list as Braintree Payment Solutions. You can view that list here.

No card information is stored in any system other than the PCI validated gateway, and full card information is not available to users. The web system is hosted on secure computers located in a locked data center. We also require that any personally identifiable consumer information sent to the system be encrypted using SSL encryption.

PayPal
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, their server checks that you’re using an approved browser – one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.

Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the Internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers. Full information on PayPal’s security measures can be found here.

Coinbase
Full credit card data is securely transferred and hosted off-site by a payment vendor in compliance with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). This information is not accessible to Coinbase staff. Complete information on Coinbase’s security policy can be found here.

OUR SECURE DATABASE
Once an individual donates through SoapBox Exchange on the Parsemus Foundation website, Parsemus Foundation stores the individual’s name and address in a secure donor database in order to properly acknowledge gifts for tax purposes. If the individual does not want to be acknowledged, they can contact us at info@parsemusfoundation.org.
