We recognize the need to provide further privacy protections with respect to personal information we may collect from children under the age of 13 on our Website and in conjunction with the use of our Services.

Notifying parents about our information practices with regard to children, including the types of personal information we may collect from children, the uses to which we may put that information, and whether and with whom we may share that information;
In accordance with applicable law, and our practices, obtaining consent from parents for the collection of personal information from their children, or for sending information about our products and services directly to their children;
Limiting our collection of personal information from children to no more than is reasonably necessary to participate in an online activity; and
Giving parents access or the ability to request access to personal information we have collected from their children and the ability to request that the personal information be changed or deleted.

Although the Website has certain security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information you provide, no email or web transmission is completely secure against interception or incorrect routing.

All credit card transactions processed through the Website occur in via a secure area payment gateway to protect you from any loss, misuse, or alteration of information collected. When you make a donation, your credit card information is protected through the use of encryption.
Keeping your account information and preferences up to date is very important to us. You have rights over your personal information may include the right to review your information, request that we stop using it, or update account information. You can do this by logging in and accessing the account profile section of each online service for which you have registered. If you cannot locate, access or make desired changes to the information or permissions online, you may send a request by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, we cannot track down “de-identified” information to change it or undo any prior use of data we already used with your actual or implied consent.
