Site and Forms Security Information

Night to Shine Silicon Valley uses the forms provider, http://www.wufoo.com/ which controls and enforces the secure collection of data. Forms will be served across a protected, 256-bit SSL connection that encrypts the data before it is sent to the Wufoo.com servers. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. SSL ensures that any wrong-doer who may be listening in to our network traffic is not able to read the data being submitted to the form. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remains private and integral (complete and uncompromised).
 
In addition, Night to Shine Silicon Valley uses Wufoo.com’s encrypted data storage for key fields on our forms. The SSL offering transmits the data securely, and Wufoo.com is confident data will remain secure. However, some data is so sensitive that stricter requirements are in place. That is where encrypted data storage comes in. Night to Shine Silicon Valley has elected to utilize this encryption for key data storage. Encrypted fields are stored with additional security on Wufoo.com servers, ideal for fields that are collecting extra-sensitive data (e.g. Social Security #). Encrypted data can only be read by a machine with a specific key and password that Wufoo.com keeps hidden and protected, so if the data were to be compromised it could not be read.
