PCBC.com recognizes your concerns about Web commerce and transactions using bank and credit card information. Therefore, PCBC.com is committed to keeping personal information secure during commerce transactions by using a secured SSL encryption with all direct transactions that involve using credit card or banking information. This process allows PCBC.com to send your credit card number and personal data over the Internet securely. These encrypted data files are securely stored on California Building Industry Association-owned servers. Once encrypted, only the credit card's authorization company has the ability to decrypt it. PCBC.com never displays your credit card number online. Additionally, we store any personal information you have submitted on forms (i.e., your address, e-mail and billing information) on our secure server. Our server is tightly monitored and controlled. Only those with proper authorization have access to this information.
We are committed to quickly correcting any factual errors or errors in interpretation. PCBC staff members will address any errors brought to their attention and make an appropriate correction as soon as possible. This includes misspellings as well as factual or information errors identified in blog posts or archival articles after they have been published. The goal is to correct all content so that no errors remain in our permanent archive. We also will provide clarifications in cases where, in our judgment, the wording or the headline on an article may lead to misinterpretation.
