We use essential and non-essential “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site. Essential “session cookies” are necessary for certain website functionality including administrative login and retaining order and donation information.

By using this website, you agree to let us use cookies.

Certain information is automatically collected when you visit our website such as your ip address, browser information, Internet Service Provider (ISP), operating system, location and date/time stamp. This information is used for website security, analytics, and for improving website experience.

Information Sharing:
We will not sell or rent your information to anyone.

We do not share your information with any third party outside of our organization other than as necessary to process your donation, fulfill your order or request, respond to contact form and email inquiries, or improve our website user experience, functionality, and security.  3rd parties that we share information with include our website hosting and email provider, order fulfillment service, credit card processor, accounting and bookkeeping provider, website analytics provider, website developers, and video hosting provider. These organizations do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond those stated above.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page. Credit card information is not stored on our website after transaction has been completed.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The website is also hosted in a secure environment.
