When an order is processed, which includes the customer’s contact information, email address and credit card information, the customer will receive a confirmation email immediately that says the order is in queue to be processed. As soon as the information is obtained off our secure server, the credit card data is automatically deleted forever from the server and is transferred to our in-house database which is secured and inaccessible to anyone outside of our organization. Internal access is limited to those individuals on a need to know basis in order to service and bill a customer’s account. We have a strict code of ethics and disciplinary procedure in place.


We encrypt credit card and other financial information for even greater protection. However, we are not responsible for unauthorized access by illegal means, in the absence of negligence by Conferencing Tree or its affiliates.

2)       Choose entry and exit tones to notify you when a participant joins or leaves your conference call

3)        Conduct a roll call to find out who is on your conference call.

4)       Lock your conference call to ensure that no one joins after you begin.

5)       At the end of your call, disconnect all lines to ensure everyone leaves at the same time.

6)       Change your conference call passcode regularly or when you suspect misuse.
