The Children's Foundation Online Privacy Statement
The Children's Foundation is committed to respecting your online privacy and security. We've structured our website so that, in general, you can visit us on the Web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information.

What we collect

The types of personal information collected on these pages are name, contact and billing information, transaction and credit card information. In order to tailor our subsequent communications to you and continuously improve our services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experiences as a sponsor, and contact preferences.
How we use it

Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, communicate back to you, update you on your sponsored child and special events. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for other purposes. From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research or provide you with information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to decline such direct marketing or market research contact. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable. Data collected online may also be combined with information you provide when you register online as a sponsor.

As previously stated, you may let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials from us, and we will do everything we can to honor such requests.
