Chamber PCI Compliance
We take precautions to protect your data. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. The Chamber provides a secure environment for members to make online payments by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. This means that wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that data is encrypted and transmitted to the credit card processor in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. Credit card information is stored in a Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant secured off-site server.
We also protect your data offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or member service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. Passwords are provided only to those who have a need to use them.
Print copies of membership applications and other documents containing sensitive information are kept in a secure file cabinet. If those print documents contain credit card information, the credit card information is redacted. Documents that do not need to be retained containing credit card information are shredded.
