Dallas Baptist University respects the privacy of its students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and other customers. DBU makes every effort to protect personal information that it collects from conducting business.

When processing E-commerce transactions, such as credit card, debit card or ACH payments, it is necessary to collect personal financial information. DBU has taken great efforts to process these transactions in the most secure means possible.

By policy, Dallas Baptist University itself does not collect personal information like credit card numbers; instead, we partner with an outside service provider that collects the information and processes the transactions on our behalf.

The policy specifies that the provider must be PCI DSS certified, which means that it has demonstrated its systems and procedures meet the stringent security standards of the payment card industry. The provider is also required to certify in writing that it will keep this information confidential and, will not share it with any party unless that party needs it to complete the transaction.
