online giving and credit card purchases
We are committed to the privacy of all our parents and donors, and we take every precaution to protect our users’ personal information. Donations and payments to Cape Fear Academy are managed by secure third party vendors. If you make an online purchase or donation, upon submission that information is encrypted using SSL (Secured Sockets Layer), an industry standard secure technology designed to prevent the theft or interception of the information you provide. Credit card billing information is used only to obtain payment from the appropriate credit card firm and to fulfill the user’s request, and is not stored or otherwise retained by Cape Fear Academy after the transaction is complete.
