Is CharityTracker legal?
- CharityTracker's database technology and security uses 256-bit encryption and is audited monthly by an independent security firm to ensure continued security and industry best practices. These are the same security standards utilized by banks and the Federal government.
- The United Way of Northwest Alabama was a key player in the creation of CharityTracker. Before they allowed the system to be used by their member agencies, they sought legal counsel. The program and its documentation were reviewed by a lawyer to ensure compliance with federal and state laws.
- CharityTracker was reviewed by the Alabama Attorney General's office and approved for use by DHR and DHS.
- Several DHS and DHR offices in the US use CharityTracker.
