Law Enforcement: We may share your personal data with law enforcement, other government agencies or authorities or third parties as required by applicable law, court order, subpoena, or legal process served on us.


Data that you provide about yourself: We collect your personal data when you voluntarily provide it to us. For example, you might give us your name, email address, and physical address if you choose to participate in a Foundation event, complete a “Request Information” Form, or email, text, or contact us through our sites. Participation is voluntary and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to disclose information to our sites. Information collected from the Request Information Form may be shared with third parties to perform administrative or marketing functions. You may always opt out, now or in the future if you do not wish to receive our messages or marketing information. 

It is always your choice whether to provide your data. Some personal data must be provided to participate in some of our programs, activities, or events.

Data we receive from third parties and other sources: We may receive personal data about you from other sources, including your company/organization, professional references, publicly available sources, third-party analytics providers, or other third parties. By way of example only, we might receive your data if someone at your company designates you as a contact person for that company.

Cookies: The Foundation avoids the use of cookies whenever possible, but cannot guarantee that we will not use them. A “cookie” is a small file placed on your hard drive by our web server that helps our site to be much more intuitive when you request information. For example, cookies are required to help protect the privacy of a member’s transactions by automatically terminating online sessions if the member forgets to log out.

Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to a user’s email address, obtaining data from the user’s hard drive, or gaining confidential or sensitive information about the user while on the Foundation’s website. Additionally, a cookie cannot be read by any website other than the one that set the cookie. We do not use the information collected by these “cookies” for any other purposes. If you reject the cookie, you may still use our website, but our website’s general inability to verify you as the user may result in your inability to use certain functionality of our website. Cookies also enable a website to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on each website.

However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.
