Emails from NWFFACIM:
NWFFACIM has found that attractive, graphics-rich emails are a quick, effective and low-cost way to communicate with the community about the current activities and state of affairs of the Foundation, like new Raj materials becoming available for consumption. We maintain an opt-in, subscription service of email addresses of people requesting to be on our mailing list. We do not want to send emails to you if you would prefer not to receive them. Therefore, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘unsubscribe’ in order to be removed from our mailing list.
For credit card contributions, NWFFACIM adds security by using VeriSign, a leading Internet security organization, as the gateway for your online contributions to be processed. They implement Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, a means by which the credit card information you send is encrypted by your computer, and then decrypted again on a secure server within VeriSign, preventing others from accessing your private information in between. So, when using an SSL capable browser, contributing via the Foundations web site is the safest kind of contribution possible with a credit card. In addition, all credit card numbers are maintained in an encrypted format in VeriSigns credit card processing database. Only the first four digits and the last four digits of your credit card number are accessible by fully authorized Foundation personnel. All other details about your credit card are discarded once your contribution has been processed (usually within seconds of you submitting it.
