  1. HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

To Provide Products, Services, and Information.  We use your personal information to provide you with information about the Foundation, and to process contributions and donations you make using your credit card or debit card. We provide information to third party service providers that help us run our site and process your credit and debit card transaction.

We may use third parties to help host our Site, send out email updates about the Site, provide marketing and advertising services for us, remove repetitive information from our user lists, and process payments. These service providers will have access to your personal information in order to provide these services, but when this occurs we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to helping us provide the service.

Your Consent.  In addition to the sharing described elsewhere in this Policy, we will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of the Foundation when we have your consent to do so. We will not trade, share or sell a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations unless we have received specific permission to do so.

Legal Proceedings.  We will share personal information with third party companies, organizations or individuals outside of the Foundation if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

  • Meet any applicable law, regulation, subpoena, legal process or governmental request.
  • Enforce applicable Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations.
  • Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
  • Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of the Foundation, our users, customers or the public as required or permitted by law.

Transfer in the Event of Sale or Change of Control.  If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes or we otherwise transfer assets relating to our business or the Site to a third party, such as by merger, acquisition, bankruptcy proceeding or otherwise, we may transfer or sell your personal information to the new owner. In such a case, unless permitted otherwise by applicable law, your information would remain subject to the promises made in the applicable privacy policy unless you agree differently.

  1. ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION AND CHOICES

If you have questions about personal information we have about you or need to update your information, you can Contact Us or call us at (813) 269-0955. You can opt-out of receiving marketing and promotional e-mails from the Foundation by using the opt-out or unsubscribe feature contained in the e-mails.

  1. SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

We process your donation securely using measures that comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (“PCI DSS”) and Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) the credit card industry’s most stringent security standard. Examples of our security measures include: physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards; sophisticated security monitoring tools; documented security policies; use of strong encryption (e.g., TLS) for credit card processing; restricted access to personally identifiable information.

We use industry standard physical, technical and administrative security measures and safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information.  However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot guarantee, ensure, or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.  There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.  It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information.
