Online and Offline Donations
Sing for Hope collects the following personal information through our secure online financial-transaction pages as well as offline when appropriate: name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and credit card information. This personal information is used to communicate with you about your donation and to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes. In addition, we may use such information to improve our marketing efforts or to contact you and send you information regarding Sing for Hope through email updates and mailings.
When a user of our website makes a contribution or volunteers in one of our programs, we must have the information necessary to process the transaction: name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and, when applicable, credit card number. For reasons of security, no credit card information is shared with any third parties or stored permanently on our web server. If a user registers at our site but does not make a purchase or volunteer commitment, this same information is collected with the exception of credit card information. In addition to using your name and contact information to process your transactions, your name and contact information will be added to our database, and we may perform statistical analyses of user behavior to measure interest in the various areas of our site.
