Collection of Personal Information
We do not collect personally identifiable information about individual users unless a user voluntarily provides such information to us. We store any information that you provide, such as your name, mailing address or email address, using secure servers. We may share your information with third party vendors who use your information for the sole purpose of fulfilling your request (e.g., charging your donation). Each of our vendors has agreed to keep your information confidential from disclosure to others. We may also share your information within our family of organizations (Alliance for Justice and Alliance for Justice Action Campaign). In addition, we will cooperate with law enforcement, which may include disclosing some of your personal information if necessary. We will never sell any of your personal information to any third party. And we will never post any of your personal information online without your consent.
Protecting Children’s Privacy
We are concerned about the safety and privacy of children online. Therefore, we do not and will not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13. It remains possible, however, that we may receive information given to us by or pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information, we will promptly either obtain parental consent or delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by or about any child under 13, please email us at [email protected]
You may be able to purchase items or donate money via our websites. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission of information you submit to us via our secure forms. All online financial transactions are processed through a secure window hosted by Verisign, a leading provider of digital trust services and transactions. We do not retain, share or use any of your financial information for any purpose other than to process your payment. We have security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information within our control. Only employees with a need to know certain information to perform a specific task are granted access to personally identifiable information of our users. In addition, the servers that store sensitive information are kept in a secure environment.
You may sign up to receive email communications from us. These emails provide information that we think will be of interest to you, for example, information about new features or content on our sites, or calls for action on certain social justice issues. You can always “opt out” of receiving our online communications by following the unsubscribe directions on any of the emails, or by sending us an email at [email protected] asking that we delete you from our subscriber list.
Please recognize that emails are not secure against interception. Therefore, please do not send us sensitive or personal information via email.
