We only disclose personal information about you to the following types of nonaffiliated third parties: Financial services providers, such as companies engaged in banking, credit cards, and consumer finance.

By way of further example:
In order to apply for a campaign on this website, a user is required to give their full contact information. This information is used to evaluate the application and contact the user about the campaign location where they have expressed interest. In order for this website to properly fulfill its obligation, it may be necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.
We request information from users making donations through our shopping cart and order processing interfaces. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and address), financial information (like credit card number, expiration date), and identity information. This information is used to process users’ donations, for notification purposes for automatic contributions, and to verify the identity of the consumer to protect against fraud. If we have trouble processing a donation, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track usage, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We partner with other parties to provide specific services including credit card processing. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use nonpublic personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. We do not otherwise disclose nonpublic information to anyone, except as permitted by law.
This web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we, 40 Days for Life, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site. Operators may be subject to the FTC’s privacy regulations and if so, (i) the FTC’s regulations contain sample disclosures that operators may consider; and (ii) operators may be required to send annual notices in addition to initial disclosures to their customers.
This website takes precautions to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our donation and application forms ask users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. While on a secure page, such as our donation and application forms, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our accounting or administrative representatives) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers’ information is protected.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Site and service updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates. We may close an account and/or refuse additional services if users unsubscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email, fax, or phone.
Correction / updating of personal information
If a user’s nonpublic personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can usually be done by calling our headquarters at 888-543-3316 or by emailing email@example.com for more instructions.
As provided in this policy, we only provide your nonpublic personal information to a nonaffiliated third party in conjunction with the services that you have requested that we provide to you. All nonaffiliated third parties to whom we disclose your nonpublic personal information are contractually prohibited by us to disclose or use the information other than to carry out the transactions that you have requested. Accordingly, there is nothing for a user to opt out of with respect to how we currently use their non-public personal information.
