We offer the use of a secure server.

After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will neither be stored on our web servers nor accessible via any public facing systems.

No method of safeguarding information is 100% secure. SCSA has employed physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. Personal information is accessible only by staff designated to handle online complaints or requests. All employees and contractors with access to personal information are also bound to adhere to this policy. To protect the security of information supplied by users in order to access restricted areas, users must provide email addresses and passwords to access their information.
