Is YourVolunteers Secure?
No system on the Internet is entirely secure, but we do our very best to protect your
information. We use SSL to transmit information. We protect our login information like
it was the last box of Twinkies on the planet. Just Google "data breach" to see that even
the world's biggest companies can be breached.
Do you contract out to firms in other countries?
First and foremost, we have worked with firms and individuals in other countries on other
projects in the past and we do not believe that the quality of their work or their
character should be judged
based solely on the fact that they live in Country A or Country B. With that said, YourVolunteers
has always been an in-house project and every line of programming code was written on
machines owned by Primary Key Technologies, Inc. in Washoe Country, Nevada. No one outside of the
company has access to the programming code or database. Also, we write really good code.
What Questions Should I Ask Other Volunteer Services?
Do your contractors have access to user data? If you do use contractors, have you had your
source code independently reviewed for security holes and quality? Do you allow your contractors
to have direct access to the live database? Are your servers in secure facilities and can
you describe the steps you take to protect them? How often are your databases backed up?
Who has access to my information?
The staff of YourVolunteers has access to your information primarily for the purposes of support. The
volunteer managers of the organizations with whom you are a volunteer have access as well and you will
need to contact them to see how they use your information.
I have a feeling that you sold my personal information. Am I right?
If you are sure that your personal information has been sold, contact your volunteer manager to see
what they do with your information. If you want to test us or your manager, register as a
pseudonym that you only use on our system and see if you start getting emails. For example, you could
sign up as Carlos Danger and then see if you start getting SPAM related to little blue pills.
