Information Security

We are committed to ensuring the privacy of your personal information and have established
safeguards to help protect such information. For example, to protect your privacy, Special
Olympics Kansas uses passwords to help verify authorized user identity before granting access
anywhere your personal information is stored. All online monetary transactions are done on a
secure server. This means that information entered on the transaction page is encrypted using
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) before transmission. On secure pages, a “closed” lock symbol is
displayed in the bottom part of your browser screen and the website address in the address bar
at the top of the browser screen starts with an “https” instead of an “http.” Though we strive to
ensure the security of your information on our systems, no security measures are perfect or
impenetrable and data transmission over the internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100%
