Additionally, we may collect Personal Information about you from other third-parties and combine it with our records, for example, to update your contact information.

How We May Share Your Personal Information
We may use third-party vendors to help us maintain and operate our Website and for general operation of the organization, and those vendors may receive your Personal Information for those limited purposes. We may also disclose Personal Information about you in connection with legal requirements, such as in response to a subpoena, government request, or investigation, or as otherwise required by law. In certain instances, we may agree to allow a vendor to use aggregated data about activity for general improvement or benchmarking purposes, generally in an anonymized or aggregate form.
We may also share your Personal Information with third-parties for any legitimate business purpose, or if we believe the law requires us to do so, or to protect our property or the property of our affiliates. Additionally, in the event of a corporate restructuring (such as a sale, merger, or other transfer of some or all of our assets), we may share your Personal Information with a third-party. We may also disclose de-identified information in aggregate form to our partners or affiliates.
Anonymized donor information is used for promotional and fundraising activities. We allow donors the option to have their name publicly associated with their donation unless the donor explicitly requests we recognize their gift as anonymous. When donating online, this request can be communicated to us in through the online donation form. Comments given in donor forms are published in public lists and may be used in promotional materials while comments sent to us via email, fax or telephone, are kept strictly confidential.
Security of Personal Information and Online Transactions
We implement reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to help us protect the Personal Information you provide to us from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. We contract with a third-party organization to run our donation platform, which may collect Personal Information.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
