Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone and fax numbers is collected in order for FRIENDS to communicate with supporters and potential supporters by mail, telephone or e-mail for purposes that include fundraising, updating you on our activities, and involving you in advocacy initiatives. Financial information such as banking or credit card information is collected in order to process one-time or ongoing contributions. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. We will ask you for personal information when you subscribe to our e-mail mailing list, take part in a fax or e-mail campaign, or when you report a problem with this site. We may also occasionally ask you to complete surveys that we use for research. Personal information collected in submissions to The Dalton Camp Award is used to communicate with entrants and identify and notify winners. If you are not a supporter, we may obtain your personal information from an organization that has obtained your consent to share your information with other organizations, in which case the purposes for which your information was collected by that organization will continue to apply.
