If you make a donation, either online or otherwise, we will request certain personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, and credit card information). This information enables us to process your donation and communicate with you about it. In addition, we may use such information to keep you updated about our work, analyze website usage, and improve our website’s content, layout, and services. We do not share this information with other organizations.
Boomerang employs companies to assist us with such functions as processing online donations and credit card payments. These companies have access to personal donor information as needed to perform their functions. Boomerang requires that these companies keep such information confidential.
Through our website or otherwise, you may decide to submit personally identifiable information (such as your name, postal address and email address) for purposes other than donating (such as receiving an email newsletter or further information as to a particular topic). We collect and store this information and use it for the purposes for which you submitted it. We do not share this information with any third parties except those that assist us with certain functions, as described above.
Please be advised that we may disclose your personal information to the government or to third parties pursuant to law enforcement inquiries, court orders, subpoenas and similar requests, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law or may expose us to liability.
