Contact Information: For example, we may collect your name and street address. We may also collect your phone number or email.
Payment and Billing Information: For example, we collect your credit card number and zip code in the event you donate to the Foundation.
Demographic Information: We may collect information about you for the purposes of surveys.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”): May be used to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site and pages viewed as well as to diagnose problems with our servers and to administer the Site. We may then use this information to analyze and improve the features and functionality of this Site. In addition, we may share information with third parties that are not part of the Foundation on an aggregate or other basis that does not disclose any of your PII (defined below).
In some instances, we may combine Non-PII with PII (such as embedding email addresses in cookies). If we do combine any Non-PII with PII, the combined information will be treated as PII as long as it is so combined. This “combined” PII is not shared with third parties, except as described in this Policy.
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”): When you supply information about yourself to make a donation, we use the information solely for that purpose. We may enter the PII into our donor database and contact you in order to supply you with information, including Foundation newsletters, program updates, events and fundraising opportunities. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete the transaction or ship the purchased item. Please note that, at times, forms on the Site may be pre-populated with your PII in order to facilitate a transaction between you and the Site.
The Foundation reserves the right to notify you of administrative matters in connection with the Site (e.g., contacting you to facilitate, complete or confirm a transaction). Because this information may be important to your use of the Site, you may not opt-out of receiving such communications.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS THE PRIVACY OR INFORMATION PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTIES.
If you would like to update or delete the information we received from you, you may contact us directly at [email protected]. The Foundation endeavors to keep your PII accurate and up to date. If your PII has changed, you may submit your new information there as well. We keep PII for as long as we think it is necessary or advisable and reserve the right to retain such information to the full extent not prohibited by law. We may discard your PII in our discretion, so you should retain your own records and not rely upon the Foundationʼs storage of any PII or other data.
The Foundation employs reasonable security measures consistent with standard industry practice, for PII collected through this Site, including physical, electronic and operational measures to maintain security and prevent unauthorized access. While the Foundation takes all appropriate steps to safeguard PII under our control, unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or method of storing data can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As such, we cannot guarantee that PII supplied by users will not be accessed on our servers, or intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. We assume no liability for any damages you may suffer as a result of interception, alteration or misuse of information during such transfers. If you have reason to believe that there has been any breach of the security of the Site, please contact us at [email protected]. You will be responsible for all uses of your donation, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify the Foundation of any unauthorized use of your PII at [email protected]. If we are required to provide notice of unauthorized access or other invasion of certain security systems, you agree that we may do so when required or (voluntarily) by posting notice on our Site or sending notice to any email address we have for you, in our good faith discretion. You agree that notice to you will count as notice to others for whom you are acting on behalf of and agree to pass notice to them.
If you have any questions concerning this Policy, you may send them by email to [email protected]. Please note that email communications will not necessarily be secure; accordingly you should not include sensitive information in your email correspondence with us.
We appreciate your assistance in keeping your PII up to date and accurate. You are entitled to verify update your PII collected by the Foundation. If you have a concern regarding the collection, use or disclosure of your PII by the Foundation, please contact us at the address below:
