GDUI Privacy Statement

Guide Dog Users, Inc. (GDUI) only has access to information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. GDUI will not sell or share this information. 

Security

We take precautions to protect your information during the acquisition process on the web site and after the information has been collected. When collecting sensitive information (e.g., credit card data), such information is encrypted and transmitted in a secure manner using Secure Sockets Layer encryption(SSL). You can verify that SSL protection is active by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your Web browser or checking to see that the page address begins with "https."

Although we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only individuals who require the information to perform a specific job or fill a request are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers on which GDUI stores personally identifiable information are located in a secure environment.
