Is Credit Card Information Secure?

Companies we work with to process credit card transactions also use high-grade encryption and security protocols.

How Do We Use "Cookies"?
ODS welcomes children to learn more about our organization and, where appropriate, find opportunities to serve their communities through ODS volunteer drives. However, we encourage this to be done only with their parent's knowledge and supervision. For this reason, ODS follows the guidelines for interactive electronic media published by the Children's Advertising Review Unit of the Better Business Bureau.
