Bloom has a layered security in our systems and only designated employees to have access to hard copies of your personal data. All online transactions are done on a secure server: information entered on the transaction page is encrypted using a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) before transmission. On secure pages, a “closed” lock symbol is displayed in the address bar to the left of the web address and the website address in the address bar at the top of the browser screen starts with an “HTTPS” instead of an “HTTP.” Authorize.net verifies donation pages, and transactions are secured using a VeriSign merchant account.

We make an effort to require all third-party service providers to hold personal information in strict confidence.

COOKIES AND PIXELS:
A “cookie” is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from Bloom’s web server and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies collect non-identifying information about the user, such as web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific website. Bloom uses two different types of cookies – session-based and persistent cookies. Session-based cookies expire at the end of a browser session, so the cookie terminates once you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you remove them. Persistent cookies provide internal website analytics. You can manually delete all cookies, including persistent ones, within your browser privacy. In addition, Bloom uses “pixels,” or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These pixels do not collect identifying information.
We may occasionally include “links” to other websites from our website. Bloom’s privacy practices may not be applicable at any third-party sites. Anytime you leave the Bloom website, we have no control regarding what information may be collected about you, nor do we control what third parties might do with the data. It is important that you carefully review any privacy policies on third-party sites before you use any services or programs offered.
CHANGES TO PRIVACY PRACTICES:
Bloom may revise its privacy practices to address changing technology, security measures, and website functionality from time to time. We strive to provide you with timely notice of these changes.
