8. Data Security
At DU, we believe securing your personal information is important. We use industry-standard controls, technologies, and on-line security techniques to protect your personal information from unauthorized access. All information provided to Ducks Unlimited is transmitted using Norton Secure (Verisign) SSL encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. Additionally, Ducks Unlimited complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for all credit card information submitted on ducks.org. Ducks Unlimited does not store your credit card information on a permanent basis.
