Users understand that btr.org uses Stripe or PayPal to process payment in exchange for providing our services. Users understand and agree that we cannot control nor can we be liable for the acts of Stripe or PayPal and you agree to hold BTR harmless from any liability for security incidents or damages which may be incurred suing the third party payment processing services.

btr.org uses reasonable safeguards to protect personally identifiable information about Users.

Only btr.org administrators or employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to such personally identifiable information. All administrators and employees are trained on the importance of User confidentiality and kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our administrators and employees are trained in the policies.
