The Information We Collect from Donors
The only personal information that we collect from donors is the information that is voluntarily provided to us. For example, if you opt to make a donation by “clicking” the “donate” button on our Website, we will collect (or such other website or venue will collect on our behalf) certain personally identifiable information, which may include your name, email address, postal address and payment information. In regard to processing your donations – whether or not processed through a third-party payment processor - the payment information you provide to us will only be used to process your donation. If you opt to make a recurring donation, then required payment information will be stored to facilitate future donations; otherwise, your payment information will not be stored or used for any other purpose. Please note, that except as specified below under the heading “How We May Share your Information,” we do not sell, rent, share, trade or otherwise make available the names and personal information of our donors with any other organization or entity. Additionally, we do not send emails to our donors on behalf of other organizations or entities.
How We May Share Your Information
Also, as noted above, ADAA works with a variety of third-party partners in order to allow us to collect and process your donations. Except as stated in this Donor Policy, we do not reveal personally identifiable information about you to third parties for their independent use unless: (1) it is necessary to allow ADAA and it’s service providers or agents to provide services on ADAA’s behalf, or (2) it is necessary in connection with a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of ADAA or the merger of ADAA into another entity or any consolidation, share exchange, combination, reorganization, or like transaction in which ADAA is not the survivor, or (3) otherwise as ADAA is required or permitted to do so for any or all of the following reasons: (i) to comply with a subpoena, legal process, government request or any other legal obligation, or (ii) to investigate or prosecute criminal offenses.
Payments and Payment Processing: Rules for All Payments
You can make an online donation to ADAA. ADAA has engaged the services of third party payment service provider(s) to process all donation/payment transactions. ADAA is not affiliated with any such third party payment service provider(s), and neither is the agent or employee of the other, and ADAA is not responsible in any way for the actions or performance (or lack thereof) of such third party payment service provider(s). Accordingly, ADAA expressly disclaims responsibility and liability for all payment processor services, and you hereby agree that ADAA shall not be responsible for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as a result of such services. Additionally, since such third party payment service provider(s) will have access to the information you provide to them when making a donation, you should not make a donation if you are not comfortable with sharing your information with these third parties.
You hereby acknowledge and agree that, for all donations, (1) you will not use an invalid or unauthorized credit or debit card or other payment method; (2) all donations are final and non-refundable. If you have any questions regarding any donation, please contact us by phone at 240-485-1016 or by email at [email protected].
We reserve the right to revise this Donor Policy at any time by updating this posting. Please check back regularly and to see if there have been any changes to this policy, which you can determine by reviewing the Effective Date listed below. By continuing to donate to us after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Donor Policy.
This donor policy is effective as of November 19, 2020.
