Updated as of March 7, 2024

This Privacy Policy explains how information about you is collected, used, and disclosed by Friends of Lisa Gore ("FOLG") with respect to your use of the website located at www.gorefordc.com and the other websites, mobile sites, and online services that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Site”) or when you otherwise interact with us.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Site to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

Information Collected About You

We collect a variety of personal information about those who register on our site, make contributions through our site, or use other functions or features on the site. Personal information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a name, address, telephone number, credit card information, bank account information, e-mail address, or information about activities that are directly linked to that person.

We collect the information you give us when you register on our site, contact us, or make an online contribution. For example, when making a contribution, in addition to providing us your name, address, occupation, and name of employer, you will need to provide us a billing address and credit card or bank account information and answer a series of brief questions to make sure we may legally accept your contribution.

Automatically Collected Information: We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us online. For example, when you visit our site, our systems automatically collect your IP address and the type of browser you use. Information may be automatically collected through the use of “cookies” (more information below). 

Text messaging opt-in data, consent, and related collected personal information will not be shared with or sold to any third parties unless required by law.

 

Network And Information Security

We employ a variety of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information. For example, we use commercially reasonable tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. Also, we restrict access to personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide services to you. In addition, we work to protect the security of your personal information by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information you input and allows you to view your information in a secure manner.

You should be aware that we have no control over the security of other sites on the Internet you might visit, interact with, or from which you buy products or services. Further, we store the personal information we collect from you behind a secure firewall and place the transaction site on a secure server.

Tracking technologies used are beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze our site. You can instruct Your browser to refuse all Cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
