You can always visit the Site without revealing who you are or providing any personal information. However, when you visit, we do learn your Internet Protocol address and may associate it with your record in applications such as Google Analytics and CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) software. By using your data, we can better understand, for example, how the Site is navigated, how many visitors arrive at specific pages, the length and frequency of stays at the Site, and the types of browsers and computer operating systems used by our visitors. We may use this information to improve the Site’s Content and ease of use.

When you expressly provide us with your personal information, whether by sending us an email or by providing information directly to the Site by signing up for one of our programs, we may learn your name, email address, zip code and other contact information. In addition, we will learn your contact information and the amount of your gift when you donate through the Site. However, we will never have access to any credit card or other financial information you provide in connection with your donation, such information being obtained directly and used only by our third party service providers charged with managing our donations. We will take all reasonable measures to protect your contact information, and we will not share it with third parties, such as direct marketers, without your request or consent. However, you acknowledge and agree that we or our authorized agents may provide your personal information (a) to third-party providers of services to the Site, such as computer programmers and technicians, to maintain or update the Site, or to help improve the Site’s Content and ease of use, or (b) to other third parties when compelled by a court order or other legal process. With respect to (a) above, we will provide your information only to third parties that are under obligation to reasonably protect this information.
The Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We safeguard the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and other procedures. However, it is not possible to guarantee the security or integrity of information disclosed online. Because no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet, including when you are using the Site.
