What information is collected and why:
When a donor pledges money as a donation, the Foundation requests certain personally identifiable information from them in order to process the donation. Donors must provide contact information (such as name, email, and billing address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date, or checking account information). This information is used for billing purposes and to fulfill donations. Credit card information is only used for specific or pre-authorized recurring transactions and is destroyed or encrypted. In the event we have trouble processing a donation, we will use this information to contact the donor.
Our commitment to donor privacy:
The Foundation does not sell, trade, rent or share names, addresses, telephone numbers or email addresses of our donors to any outside party without the individual donor’s express written consent. For purposes of this policy, an outside party includes, but is not limited to, the Board of Directors (including any former, honorary, or founding members), Advisory Board members, other donors, third-party vendors, or other organizations.
To the extent necessary, the Foundation will use the contact information of donors for the following purposes only:
- Acknowledging donors for their contributions (with their express written consent);
- Producing receipts for donations;
- Internal analysis and record keeping;
- Mail and/or email communications regarding upcoming events, campaigns, the Foundation’s mission and program;
- Reporting to relevant U.S. agencies or as required by courts, laws or legal process and to the extent required to permit the Foundation to investigate any suspected fraud, harassment, or other violations of any law, rule, regulation, the Foundation’s rules or policies, the rights of third parties, or to investigate any conduct which the Foundation deems improper.
Donor’s right to view or restrict their information:
- Donors are welcome to request and receive a complete copy of their records.
- Donors who wish to remain anonymous and not be included in published lists of donors must state so at the time of the gift. Completion of the donation remittance envelope or mention of name on any correspondence accompanying the donation is deemed written permission to be included in published lists of donors unless otherwise stated in writing.
- Donors and prospective donors may opt out of fundraising mailings via telephone, letter, e-mail, or in person. A statement providing opt-out instructions is included in all annual campaign correspondence.

Our site uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor’s contact information (e-mail address) and financial information (credit card numbers) through our fulfillment partner, Blackbaud Merchant Services. Contact information from the order form is used to send our customers’ orders and information about our company and about companies we choose. The customer’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary and may be shared with other select companies who want to contact the user. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Financial and contact information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services and may be shared with companies that help us operate our site, such as the credit card companies that we use.

In addition, LoneSurvivorFoundation.org collects and stores statistics and other information about the online activities of our users on an aggregated (collected) basis. For example, we track the number of people who view each page, the order in which pages are viewed, and other information to learn which features are the most popular and to refine our design and marketing efforts.
You agree that we may assign, sell, license or otherwise transfer to a third party your personal information in connection with an assignment, sale, joint venture or other transfer or disposition of all or substantially all of the assets or capital stock of LoneSurvivorFoundation.org or its affiliated entities.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Our database servers are protected from intruders by a Cisco firewall router and your credit card transactions are enacted using 128-bit SSL encryption. We may be required to release personal information about you as a result of a lawsuit or subpoena or as immediately necessary to protect our rights or the rights and safety of others. Additionally, “perfect security” does not exist on the internet.
LoneSurvivorFoundation.org strongly encourages parents and guardians to supervise their children’s online activities and to consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers to help provide a child-friendly online environment. These tools also can prevent children from disclosing online their name, address, and other personally identifiable information without parental permission. Tickets for sale are intended for purchase by adults. By making a purchase on the site, you agree that you are at least 13 years of age. Although the LoneSurvivorFoundation.org site is not directed to children under the age of 13, LoneSurvivorFoundation.org does:
NOT collect online contact information from children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent or parental notification, which will include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. Without prior parental consent, online information will only be used to respond directly to the child’s request and will not be used for other purposes without prior parental consent.
NOT collect personally identifiable offline contact information from children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent.
NOT distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information with respect to children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent.
NOT give the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information with respect to children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent.
NOT entice children under the age of 13 by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity, to divulge more information than is needed to participate in the activity.
Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having their information used for purposes not directly related to the Site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our order form has an ‘opt-out’ mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don’t want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.
Users who no longer wish to receive our e-mail newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out simply by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the e-mail. You may also unsubscribe at any time by e-mailing info@LoneSurvivorFoundation.org. Type UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line. We will update your records as soon as possible, but no later than 30 days from your request.
