1.6.4 Online Security

EFFECTIVE: 6/22/2011 · REVISED: 5/18/2022


The University of Tennessee Foundation Inc (UTFI), through The University of Tennessee, licenses Anthology Encompass Online Community (the site) for a variety of purposes, including online giving, online event registration and payment, and online communications management. The site incorporates reasonable measures to protect and keep information secure. For example, Secure Socket Layer or “SSL” and firewalls are used to protect information from loss, misuse and alteration.

Only those UTFI employees who require access to information to carry out legitimate UTFI business functions are allowed access to data collected by and stored in Encompass.

Security policies will be reviewed periodically and revised as required.

All credit card information is processed via Elavon’s Payment Gateway, which is seamlessly integrated with the Anthology Encompass and is compliant with PCI DSS and PA DSS. See 1.6.2. PCI Compliance Certificate.

The Director of Constituent Management will annually ensure that Elavon still maintains its VISA CISP/PCI compliance. This is verified through the following steps:

  1. Go to the Visa PCI Compliance website:
  2. Search the Visa Global Registry of Service Providers:
