Does Shop to Give sell my data?

We do not sell or share data with third parties outside of the partner networks, payment network, and other third parties contracted to perform the services and deliver the functions within the Shop to Give application. You can read our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use for more information. 

Does Shop to Give store my credit card information?

No - Shop to Give does not receive or store your bank account, payment card, or online payment service credentials on any systems that we operate. Shop to Give uses a process called Tokenization.

The primary difference—and benefit—of using tokenization vs. encryption is that tokenized data cannot be returned to its original form. Unlike encryption, tokenization does not use keys to alter the original data. Instead, it removes the data from an organization's internal systems entirely and exchanges it for a randomly generated nonsensitive placeholder (a token). These placeholders can be stored within an organization's internal systems for business use while sensitive values are safely stored outside of its environment.

So, in the event that a tokenized environment is breached, no sensitive data or compromising keys/credentials would be revealed—only the non-sensitive tokens. Because no sensitive data is being stored, none is available to be stolen. In effect, the risk of data theft is virtually eliminated.

What cybersecurity does Shop to Give have?

Shop to Give uses industry-standard AES-256 encryption algorithm to encrypt your data.

What is a browser extension?
