Is my contribution secure?
Open Collective doesn't store sensitive payment data (e.g. Credit Card numbers), instead relying on our payment processor, Stripe, a secure solution that is widely adopted. If our systems are compromised, your payment information is not at risk, because we simply don't store it. Learn more.

What's the difference between an individual and an organization profile?
Organizations represent a company or entity, while individual profiles represent a person. Organization profiles can have multiple team members (individual profiles) who have access to edit it and make financial contributions in its name. If a contribution or expense is for a company, it's important to use an organization profile so the correct billing information shows up on receipts and invoices. Organizations can also issue gift cards.
