California Do Not Track Notice
We do not track our customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party websites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such websites, Safari 5.1+, Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox 5+ and Chrome allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
Are credit card transactions/information secure?
Augie’s Quest cares about the safety and security of your donation transaction, both online and offline. For online transactions, Augie’s Quest uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) through DigiCert to communicate with your browser software when you use your credit card on the Web Sites and thereby provide Augie’s Quest with credit card or similar information. SSL is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept your credit card / transaction and order information that you send Augie’s Quest when you use your credit card on the Web Sites.
Augie’s Quest offers a monthly e-mail service to those who are interested in hearing about the latest news about our events and research. These "eNewsletters" are strictly opt-in.
