Security of credit card or other financial information
WHWF uses carefully selected service providers to process credit card transactions on our behalf. When you provide credit card information through our website, your information goes directly from your device to a server operated by our service provider. That service provider uses your credit card information only to process your transaction and is bound by contract to treat all of your personal information you provide as confidential when you complete a transaction. For your security, our service providers only share the last four digits of your credit card number with us.
When you provide WHWF with your full credit card information directly by mail, our practice is to process your gift and unless you have requested multiple future gifts using the same credit card, upon completion of the transaction, we redact all but the final four digits of the credit card number before the information is stored in secured electronic files.
