Payment processing will be performed by third party vendors which have their own security policies that relate to the data it processes.  For information about how third party vendors’ collect, maintain and use your payment information, please view that third party vendor’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

To help maintain the security of your personal information, CCD asks that you please notify it immediately of any unauthorized access or use of the Site, its features, or its content.
