What Information We Collect
In general, when you visit our Sites and access information, you remain anonymous. We do not require you to register or provide personal information to us to view our website.
The Foundation may ask for and collect from you personally identifiable information at various points throughout the site. Depending on the information and/or services you request, you may be asked to provide your name, email address, address, phone number, payment details, and similar information. For example, personally identifiable information will be collected in order for you to subscribe to the Foundation’s electronic newsletter or blog. Once you provide your personal information, you are not anonymous to the Foundation.
We do not store sensitive information from our visitors on our Website, such as credit card and social security numbers.
Credit Card Information: If you choose to provide your credit card information to the Foundation we will use that information for the purposes for which it was provided. Afterwards, we will shred any corresponding materials that may contain confidential information.
How the Foundation uses collected information
The Foundation may use your information:
- To process and respond to inquiries and for the purposes for which you provided the information, such as to process donations, register or renew you as a member, purchase merchandise, or receive information about a project.
- To send you information about the Foundation and our programs.
- To personalize your interactions with the Foundation, such as to customize your web and email content based on your interests, and improve the navigability of the Website.
- To alert you to new projects, site features, special events and services.
- To facilitate social sharing functionality
- To conduct surveys to measure your satisfaction with our service.
The Foundation processes your information on servers located in the United States.
Where and when the Foundation collects information on the Website: In addition to the information you knowingly provide, the Foundation also collects the domain names and IP addresses used by people that visit us, as well as site usage statistics such as web browser types and page requests. This data is not usually personally identifiable, and is used to more efficiently operate the Foundation’s programs, prepare for network load demands, promote our organization and administer the Website.
How we protect information: The Foundation has taken certain physical, administrative and technical steps to safeguard customer information, both online and offline, which may include but are not limited to password restricted access to personal information and encrypting data where applicable. We take efforts to help ensure the security, integrity and confidentiality of customer information; however, no transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
Children:This Website is not directed toward children under 13 years of age nor does the Foundation knowingly collect information from children under 13. If you are under 13, please do not submit any personally identifiable information to the Foundation.
Donations and Purchases
In order to make a donation or purchase on this website, a user must first complete a donation or order form, on which the user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes, to fill supporters’ orders, and to provide donations receipts. If we have trouble processing an order or donation, this contact information can be used to get in touch with the user. This information will be used to send the user materials, a tax receipt (if a donation is made), or purchased items. The user will be added to the Foundation’s mailing list, unless previously indicated otherwise. If you would like to be removed from the Foundation’s mailing list, please send us an email or simply unsubscribe. We use a credit card processing company to fulfill orders using that payment method. The credit card company does not retain, share, store, or use personal information for any secondary purposes.
This website takes every precaution to protect our donor and users’ information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our donation or order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry — SSL. While on a secure page, such as our donation page, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Internet Explorer will become locked.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our supporters’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
