INFORMATION SECURITY: Partners for Youth with Disabilities has a layered security in our systems and only designated employees have access to hard copies of your personal information. All online transactions are done on a secure server. This means that information entered on the transaction page is encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) before transmission.

  • Credit Card Transactions, Electronic Fund Transfers, Payments by Check or Money Order and On-line Transactions.

If you choose to make an application for employment, make a donation on-line, by phone, through the mail or by other means, or make a purchase on-line, we will share your personal information with our processing service providers. We make an effort to require all third party service-providers to hold personal information in strict confidence.
