your donation and generates and sends you a receipt. The third party provider shares your donation
information with the Foundation via secured link but the Foundation only
retains your name, address, donation amount, and the last four digits of your
credit card number. The Foundation uses
this information to maintain its donor database and to answer any questions a
donor may have regarding his or her online donation.

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when
you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server,
administer our site, analyze trends, track users’ movement, gather broad
demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site,
and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to
personally identifiable information.
