We collect information from you when you subscribe to our newsletter, join a group, respond to a survey, fill out a form, or make a donation. When registering or donating on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, street address, email address, phone number, or credit card information.
What do we use your information for?
To process transactions: Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the service requested.
To send periodic emails: The email address you provide for registrations or donations will only be used to send you information and updates pertaining to these registrations or donations.
How do we protect your information?
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway provider's database only to be accessible to those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
We use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs, or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you register with our site or services, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information such as your address.
When you return to the same site, the information that you provided previously can be retrieved, so you can easily access the features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.
