We contract with outside providers, including Wild Apricot and its affiliate AffiniPay, to process credit card transactions. These providers use secure servers, so your credit card number and other Personal Information will be encrypted and will remain confidential.
At any time, you may contact us or access the website directly if you wish to update, modify or delete the information in your personal profile or if you wish to be removed from any of our mail or email lists.
