What do we use your information for?

We might use your information…

  • to process transactions, such as donations or conference registration. Your information will not be transferred to anyone else, except to do what you asked us to do. Your email address will be used only to send you information about your request.
  • to send periodic emails. If you sign up for our newsletter, we’ll send a message once a week about new materials on our website. We include unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

How do we protect your information?

For credit card and other personal information, we use a secure server (when we collect information, the URL begins with https). Your information is transmitted by “secure socket” technology and may be seen only by personnel with special access rights to our database, and they are required to keep the information confidential.

Your private information will be kept on file until you tell us to delete it.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not transfer your information to outside parties, except to make the credit-card transactions that you have requested, or the hotel accommodations you have requested. We may also release your information when we believe it is necessary to comply with the law, or protect someone’s rights, property, or safety.
