Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
EGF collects information that personally identifies you, such as your name, email, phone or postal address, which you voluntarily provide to us. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. We will use your personally identifiable information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us.
When you make a secure donation online, we use your information to process your donation and to verify credit card data. For example, we use your mailing address to send your tax-deductible receipt and acknowledgment and to keep you informed about what we are doing. We may use your phone number to contact you if we need to verify information and occasionally to thank you for your support.
From time to time we may hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, for example, for software or database development support and hosting purposes. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. These companies are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information, and they are prohibited from using the information for any purpose other than the service they are providing to EGF.
We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with laws or regulations.
We may collect information that is not personally identifiable, such as “cookies,” to help us track and target the interests of our website visitors and to enhance the user experience on our site. This may include information about browser, page visits, and referring sites.
