The Leary Firefighters Foundation 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 Foundation is the sole owner of and the only organization that uses the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others under any circumstances.
Online Merchandise and Donations
The Foundation collects the following information through our secure online financial-transaction pages: name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and credit card information. This personally identifiable information is used to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes and to include you on the Foundation’s mailing list if you choose to join it.
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. When you purchase an item and it is sent to another individual, that information is captured.
The Foundation provides a separate online form to join our mailing list. The information we collect includes: name, address, e-mail address, and phone number. 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 by regular mail or email 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. To protect your privacy and security, we will take certain steps to verify your identity before granting access to your information or making corrections. Callers will be asked specific questions, including full name, address, phone number, and, if applicable, credit card numbers and/or expiration date, in order to verify their identity and protect the privacy of the Foundation’s donors and members of its mailing list.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.
We restrict access to personal information to Foundation staff. Contractors and Agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services will gain access on a case-by-case review. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
Other than the specific instances outlined in this policy, the Foundation does not collect personal information about users or how they use the site. The Foundation 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.
When you send email or other communications to the Foundation, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services. We also may discard any emails or other communications, without responding, that we feel are not applicable to the Foundation.
