This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private. All online donation transactions are handled by Payment Card Industry (PCI), -compliant vendors. PCI refers to the technical and operational standards that businesses must follow to ensure that credit card data provided by cardholders are protected. These security standards are in place for The CLEO Institute to protect your information.
