What Information Is Collected? 

We collect PI from individual visitors, volunteers, or donors when you provide it, from third parties and automatically through our Site.

Our payment card processor may collect data necessary to process your payment if you make purchases, such as your payment instrument number (such as a credit card number), and the security code associated with your payment instrument. That information is provided directly to our third-party payment processors whose use of your PI is governed by their Privacy Policy. 

We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use or navigate the Site. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information), but may include device and usage information, such as your IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, general location, information about how and when you use our Site and other technical information. Like many businesses, we also collect information through cookies and similar technologies.
