What do we use your information for?
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. You may be asked to give us individual information to receive information, to make a donation, or register as a volunteer. We may use the information to personalize your experience and improve our website.
You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates on our events and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless a registration form is filled out.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purposes and are not shared with outside parties.

How do we protect your 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 closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
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, distributing volunteers) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
If you have registered to receive communications from us and later change your mind, you may contact us to have your name and contact information removed from our distribution lists.

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.
