Security of our customers' personal information is Housing Development Fund, Inc. 's top priority. Housing Development Fund, Inc. Compass is hosted on a secure Amazon Web Services (AWS) server using HTTPS, which forces the use of SSL and will not store user information. SSL or "Secure Sockets Layer" is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This encrypted link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. In other words, when you enter and save your personal information into Housing Development Fund, Inc. Compass, it is encrypted to ensure no one other than Housing Development Fund, Inc. can see or receive that data.
In addition to SSL, Housing Development Fund, Inc. uses secure-flagged, session-based cookies to store only language preferences and user names. Passwords, personal data and payment information are not stored in cookies in order to maximize our customers' data protection.

When you book appointments through Housing Development Fund, Inc. Compass, you engage with Setster. Setster allows our customers to see when our staff members are available to meet individually depending on the customer's needs. If that service has an associated cost, Setster works in concert with Stripe to securely process both the appointment booking and the payment for that appointment. Setster runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS), each customer implementation is run within its own VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) with its own security controls to isolate it from others. This means that, when you book an appointment through Housing Development Fund, Inc. Compass, the minimal personal data required in order for Setster to correctly and securely book that appointment is kept separately and securely from anyone else's data as they book an appointment.
