CCBill Joins Community in Support of AIDS/LifeCycle Ride

By Rhett Pardon

TEMPE, Ariz. — CCBill announced today its continued support of the fight against AIDS by sponsoring the upcoming AIDS/LifeCycle bike ride event with a charitable donation to a community peer.
Specifically, the global processing company is sponsoring Cybersocket's Morgan Sommer’s participation as a rider. Sommer is president of the company.
“It is our privilege and honor to make this contribution for Morgan’s participation, and in doing so, also assist in the advancement of the greater cause as a whole,” said Gary Jackson, managing vice president of sales and Internet markets for CCBill. “AIDS continues to have a major impact on the nation and world, and this event continues to play an important role in increasing public awareness about HIV/AIDS, and also providing direct help for those who need it most.” 
AIDS/LifeCycle 2014 is a 545-mile distance bicycle ride between San Francisco and Los Angeles, taking place between June 1 and 7.
This year's event will be the fourth one Morgan has participated in, and also the fourth one in which CCBill supports his efforts.
Donations directly affect the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS and are used to provide essential medical, treatment, and education services to the communities served by the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the many smaller organizations around the U.S. that receive funds from the beneficiaries. 
 “This event is truly amazing. It brings people together from all walks of life with a common goal of helping others and in an atmosphere of fitness, fun and cooperation. Donations go directly to help people who need and cannot afford treatment for AIDS/HIV,” Sommer said.
"Many members of our industry supported me in this and for this I am immensely grateful. Our industry community is filled with good hearted and generous people. I like to think about the people who have demonstrated their support while I am pedaling up hour long climbs, it is incredibly motivating. CCBill and others help to keep me inspired to continue doing the training and finish this year’s ride.”
Jackson noted that CCBill is "humbled by Morgan’s dedication to this ride and cause."
"We are cheering on he and his teammates and we encourage others to join in offering their support,” he said.


For more information about how to get involved or make a contribution, visit Morgan Sommer’s participant page on the AIDS/LifeCycle website.

Notice Regarding Keeping Merchant Data Safe

You may have read or heard about the Heartbleed bug that has recently been in the news. As your trusted payment processing provider, we wanted to share with you some of our action plan regarding events like this, to help reassure you that your data is safe and to relieve any apprehensions you may have regarding Heartbleed.

The CCBill Information Security staff was fully aware of the Heartbleed issue upon its release and immediately began checking our infrastructure. Through these efforts, we have verified that we are not susceptible to this bug as we do not use the affected software. Furthermore, we have a number of additional safeguards in place to prevent any such attacks.

Should you have additional questions regarding this issue, feel free to contact our Support Team at 800-510-2859 if you are calling from the U.S. or Canada, or +855-588-3585 if calling from other locations.

As an Arizona business, CCBill joins the call to veto SB1062

During our 15+ years in business, we have watched legislation around the world impact individual civil rights – both online and in the real world, and when we see legislative attempts in our own backyard which damage civil rights progress, as well as have a potential impact on our business, we have to speak up.

We have respectfully joined other business leaders asking the Governor of Arizona, the honorable Jan Brewer, to veto the Senate Bill 1062, and to make a clear and definitive public statement that Arizona values all of its citizens and warmly welcomes all of its visitors.

As a global online business, CCBill relies on objectivity, as well as policies which support open business in order to thrive. Already, mass and social media have spread the message that Arizona’s legislature sanctions business discrimination against certain individual and groups. This is contradictory to the Arizona we know and love, and contradictory to what we see as a requirement of fairness and equality to do business in a global and local market.
As CCBill has matured as a business, we take pride is our business culture and belief in working with any business or any customer without regard to race, religion, ability or sexual orientation.  We support the right to the free exercise of religion, but that right must not encroach on the dignity and well-being of others as they seek participation in open commerce and in open society.

We stand in wait for our governor to make the right decision.
CCBill
