We use encryption technology to protect credit card numbers, bank account numbers, passwords and registration information while they are being transferred over the public Internet. Remember to sign out of your Strong Homes Strong Families account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account by using your computer when you are away from it.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Except as discussed above or otherwise designated, this Site does not use security encryption measures.

Once we receive your transmission, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
Although we undertake commercially reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized access, loss, and misuse of information, third parties may nevertheless unlawfully or clandestinely intercept or access information or other confidential transmissions. We also ask Users to carefully review their accounts and immediately report any unexpected activity to us and their issuing bank or credit card company. Additionally, we ask all Users to take measures to help protect personal information in their online accounts, including the following:
