Personal identification information

We may collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our Site, make a donation, fill out a form, or access any other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address, and/or credit card information. Users may, however, visit our Site anonymously. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personal identification information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities.

We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer, and technical information about Users’ means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.

Web browser cookies

Our Site may use “cookies” to enhance the User experience. The User’s web browser places cookies on his/her hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about him/her. The User may choose to set his/her web browser to refuse cookies or to alert him/her when cookies are being sent.  However, doing so may cause some parts of the Site to malfunction.

How we protect User information

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage, and processing practices, as well as security measures, to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of any personal information, username, password, transaction information, and data stored on our Site.

Sharing User personal information

We do not sell, trade, or rent Users’ personal identification information to others. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and Users with our business partners, trusted affiliates, and advertisers for the purposes outlined above.
