PZI uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) when receiving and transmitting your personal information. This technology is the standard for encrypting sensitive information to prevent your data from being intercepted and read while being sent across the internet.

Name and Address
We do not provide your name, billing address, shipping/mailing address, or any other personal information to anyone outside Pacific Zen Institute. This information will not be given to any third-party mailing lists. If you are receiving Santa Rosa Creek Zen Center, Coral Moon Zen, Rockridge Meditation Center, or any other weekly newsletters or other electronic notifications and no longer wish to, please email us at admin@pacificzen.org and we will remove your address from our mailing list. If you give us your mailing (or shipping address) we will use that only for our year-end letter, for your tax records, for donation acknowledgements, and for shipment of items, like DVDs or CDs, you may purchase through us.

Your credit card number and/or checking account information is not stored with your personal information. It is saved in a temporary record until your transaction has been processed, then deleted from our online database. Pacific Zen institute uses Authorize.net, the leading online transaction gateway, to process your credit card and checking account transactions, and the entire checkout process is secured with SSL.
