What information do we collect and how do we use it?
When you visit our website, we collect some non-identifying basic information. This includes total number of visitors, pages viewed, and other non-identifying information. We use this aggregate information to improve our website and to make your experience as smooth as possible.
When you donate online, we ask for your name, address, daytime phone, e-mail address, and credit card information. We also collect donor information through other means such as direct mail, call centers, e-mail communications, and personal visits. We use your information to process your donation(s) and to verify credit card data. We use your mailing address to send your tax-deductible receipt(s).
How can you protect your personal information?
You can send anonymous donations simply by sending a money order to us at the address found at the bottom of this section. However, if you do not provide your name and address we will be unable to send you a tax-deductible receipt.
Please contact us, using the contact information at the end of this section, if you would like to (a) review your personal information, (b) request corrections to your personal information, or (c) request deletion of all or a portion of your personal information. We will consider each such request as required by applicable law.
How Do We Provide a Secure Environment for Online Transactions?
Our on-line order processing system allows you to make safe donations and purchases. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect your information as it travels to our ordering system.
Our on-line credit card verification system is handled by a third party, which collects your name, address, phone, and credit card number and expiration date in order to process your transaction. Their encryption technology offers an extremely high level of security. They also have state-of-the-art firewalls and other security technology in place to ensure the confidentiality of your transactions.
