Security is very important to us and uWalk addresses security in three main areas:
Data Storage And Protection Of Personal Information
In terms of data storage, and specifically for security reasons, uWalk stores only the minimum information
needed to track donations per student and be able to contact the donar if necessary. So for each donation
made, uWalk will only store:
- Donar's name
- Donar's email address
- Donar's phone (if they entered one)
- Student's name (if they entered one)
- Teacher's name (if they selected one)
Clearly nothing that that is too sensitive in terms of identity theft... but still that data is stored on
our own secure, dedicated server.
In terms of payment information, uWalk utilizes an interface to PayPal. This means that any payment information is actually collected
on the official PayPal website... and that payment information stays on the PayPal website. That is PayPal's specialty... so let them
handle all of that!!! All uWalk gets is a confirmation from PayPal as to whether the payment was successful or not.
