Collection and Use of Personal Information
We will not collect your Personal Information without your knowledge during your visit to our website. We may ask for your Personal Information, so that we can use it to provide you with various features, services, or products. When you provide such Personal Information to us, you are acknowledging your consent to our collection and use of such Personal Information. You can also choose not to provide it; however, in some cases this may limit the features available to you on our website.

On our website, you are able to create an account and/or provide contact information. Creating an account may also be required to enable you to engage in certain transactions and activities on our website, such as purchasing products, accessing and downloading content, registering to attend events, making donations, and volunteering.
Updating Your Account and Preferences / “Opt In/Out”
We may provide you with the option to sign up for newsletters and other such items. You are not obligated to sign up, however, and you can unsubscribe from any of our electronic communications.

Third Party Websites and Information
Cookies and Technology
When we collect your Personal Information, we employ industry-standard security measures, including technical, administrative, and physical security steps to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of Personal Information under our control. For example, our website may use a Secured Socket Layer (SSL) server, which enables us to protect the Personal Information you provide during transactions (such as when you download materials, participate in certain programs, purchase resources, register for events, make donations, etc). We also use technology to protect your credit card number when we store your order and whenever we transfer that Personal Information to participating merchants or service providers (including your financial institution). We cannot guarantee that the security measures we implement in connection with the operation of our website will absolutely prevent others from accessing or acquiring any Personal Information that you provide to us when you are visiting our website.
You can also do some things to help protect the security of your Personal Information. For instance, you should never give out your account information (user id, password) since this provides access to your account Personal Information. Also, remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you finish visiting our website, so that other people using the same computer will not have access to your Personal Information.
