Privacy Policy

General Policy of Non-Disclosure

The Armed Forces Foundation (“AFF”) is committed to safeguarding your privacy. This statement explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way the information you provide us is collected and used. For easy and direct access, we provide a link to this statement from our home page and all other pages of the site.

The AFF is the sole owner of and the only organization that uses the information collected on this site. Any personal information provided to us including and similar to your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address will not be intentionally released, sold or rented to any entities or individuals outside of our organization except as noted below.

Government and Legal Disclosures

We may disclose personal information collected through this site, when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law (or a court order or subpoena); to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to enforce our terms and conditions or other agreements that govern your use of this site; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our company, our users, or others.

Mailing List

The AFF provides a separate online form to join our mailing list. The information we collect includes: name and e-mail address. This information is securely stored internally and accessed only when we correspond with our mailing list periodically during the year, either via e-mail or regular mail.

Please contact us directly if at any time you wish to be removed from the mailing list or if you would like to correct or change the personal information you have previously provided.

Online Donations

If you choose to make an online donation to the AFF, you will have to provide your credit card billing information. This information is collected and transferred over the Internet using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to our secure server. If you are making a donation, the credit card information that you provide at the time of donation is used only to process your donation and will not be used by us for any other purposes.

The AFF collects the following information through our secure online financial-transaction pages: name, address, e-mail address, phone number. This personally identifiable information is used to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes and to include you on the AFF’s mailing list.

When you send a donation in honor or in memory of someone and request that an acknowledgement be sent to another individual or a family, we will use the name and address of that individual or family for acknowledgement purposes only.

External Sites

We are not responsible for the content of external Internet sites. You are advised to read the privacy policy of external sites before disclosing any personal information.

Cookies

Other than the specific instances outlined in this policy, the Armed Forces Foundation does not collect personal information about users or how they use the site. The AFF also does not use the information-tracking devices made possible through “cookies,” small pieces of data that may be sent to your Web browser from a server and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

Website Security

The AFF’s website has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. The security measures used on this site include, but are not limited to, industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, firewalls, and internal policies to maintain the security of stored data.

While we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100 percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

While we have taken steps to protect the security of our website, we cannot guarantee information you transmit to us will be free from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. In addition, other Internet sites or services that may be accessible through our site have separate data and privacy practices independent of us, and therefore we disclaim any responsibility or liability for their policies or actions. Please contact those vendors and others directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies.

Changes to This Policy

In the event that the AFF decides to alter its privacy policy, the changes will be added directly to this statement.
