Links to Other Websites

You can donate funds to or purchase products from PCADV to support our mission. PCADV uses third-party affiliates, to collect and process donations and payments. To make this possible, your name, billing address, and donation amount are shared via secure (encrypted) means with this third-party payment processor for the sole purpose of completing your order. PCADV does not retain or see full credit card information. It is important to review the privacy policy of the third-party affiliate and credit card processor prior to providing this information to see if their privacy policy is acceptable to you. Although all donated funds will be routed back to PCADV, the terms of processing your donation will be based on the agreement between you and such designated payment service provider and not an agreement between you and PCADV. Finally, although PCADV has implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.
