The Catawba Nation is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect against foreseeable hazards such as data loss, destruction, misuse, and improper disclosure.
Sensitive information that is collected (such as credit card data or other information) is encrypted before it is transmitted online to our server. Online information is protected by the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. You can check the security of your connection by looking at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. An unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser) means the SSL is active and the server is secure. You can also look at the URL address. If the first characters of the website address change from “HTTP” to “HTTPS,” then you have accessed a secure server.
Sensitive information that is collected is also protected offline and retained by Catawba Nation. Such information is accessible only by specific employees or affiliates who need direct access to the data to fulfill the originally intended purpose or request. All associated records and equipment (computers, servers, etc.) are operated and stored within a secure environment.
Some firewalls and versions of web browsers do not allow communication through secure servers. In that case, you won’t be able to process your information through an insecure connection. If you cannot access the secure server for any reason, please print the form, fill it out and mail it to the address presented above.
The Catawba Nation will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13, consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.
If we become aware that a subscriber is under the age of 13, we will remove his or her personally identifiable registration information from our files. Please note: we may maintain a record of the person’s name and address in a “do not register” file to avoid subsequent registration by a child under 13.
