How We Secure Information
Doubleknot protects information in several ways.
When you send confidential personal information to us on our Web site, such as a
credit card information, member name or user ID and password, secure server software
which we have licensed encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us.
The information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches our Web site.
By default, when signed on or making a payment, all communication with us is
encrypted. Our secure communication can be verified when clicking on the secure
communications seal on our payment screen and at log on.
We also use encrypted communications to transmit information between us and our
service providers. For example, to process credit card payments we have a
secure connection to our payment processor.
For software, secure communications and service providers we only use well known
and established companies generally recognized a leader in their field. For
example, we use GeoTrust, Inc. technology for secure communications and Authorize.Net
and PayPal for payment processing.
We do not allow the transmission of sensitive information thorough insecure or unencrypted
channels like email.
To safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect from unauthorized
access or disclosure our servers are housed behind a firewall in secure, restricted
access facilities and we fully comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security
Standards (PCI DSS). Only authorized representatives of Doubleknot or our facility
management companies can physically access our servers. To secure data from
accidental loss, alteration or destruction we back up data on our servers every
All settlements for online payments taken on behalf of our member organizations
are securely transmitted to our bank account via Electronic Funds Transfer.
This account, with Wells Fargo Private Bank, has specifically been established
to house funds from our member organizations. Withdraws on this account
require the approval of two company officers and internal policy requires a documented
funds remittance request.
