Privacy Policy


Your online credit card transactions are secure on SCAWILMINGTON.ORG under the terms of its service contract with our selected vendor (PayPal). PayPal uses Secure Socket Layering (SSL), the industry-standard encryption technology (128-bit encryption) that ensures safe internet transmission of your personal information. Typically, your browser will provide an indication that you are entering a secure area (e.g. an icon on the browser window; a pop-up message on your monitor or an “https” in the URL indicator on the browser). A credit card purchase on our website is as safe as it is in person. Information security policies and controls are reviewed by independent third parties. 

SCAWILMINGTON.ORG will only collect personal information which you knowingly provide by purchasing tickets, becoming a Sister Cities Association of Wilmington member or some other voluntary action. If you provide personal information, we will use it to respond to your inquiry, answer your question and fulfill your request. We may also mail you information about Sister Cities programs, activities, membership and support opportunities, and special events. We will not provide your email address to anyone outside of Sister Cities Association of Wilmington (SCAW) membership without your permission to do so. With your permission, you may receive information about programs, activities, membership and support opportunities, and special events. When you receive any subscriber e-mail, you will always have the option to decline future electronic communication. This service is provided by Vertical Response which participates in and has been certified for compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield as set forth by the US Department of Commerce.
