What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information
Our registration, donation and eCommerce forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, mailing address, interests, credit card numbers and similar information. However, we do not store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card numbers.
At times, in order to expand our list of prospective donors, Seva will buy lists of like-minded organizations from a trustworthy third party. To maintain our costs, we on occasion will exchange our mailing list with other like-minded organizations, through the same reputable third party. Email addresses are never shared or sold. Seva supporters may opt out of having their names shared by sending an email with the subject "Do not share" to email@example.com.
All information provided to Seva Foundation is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our website that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Seva Foundation. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
