What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:
Our voluntary registration forms require Users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), residential address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our Users such as social security numbers. We do have a secure online donation capability and use a secure method for credit card payments. Credit card numbers are never stored and the donation process is completed through a secured Verisign site.
We will never share or sell any personal information with any non-Mission company or other third-party organization and will only use such information for purposes of permission-based communication with the User and/or to facilitate the online donation process using the aforementioned secure process.
Internet Protocol Address:
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users' movement within the Site, to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and to deliver customized, personalized content.

Use of "Cookies":
All information provided to the Foundation is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption.

Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee, ensure or warrant the security of such information.
If a User elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our Site, we ask the User for the friend's name and email address.
