We depend on our supporters’ generosity to continue our work and believe that this type of communication is a legitimate interest of ours that also respects our supporters’ rights and freedoms.

We are committed to ensuring personal information is secure. We have put security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personal information under our control. For example, we use secure server software (SSL) to encrypt financial and personal information we collect online. We do not store credit card details. Unfortunately, the transmission of data across the Internet is not completely secure and while we do our best to try to protect the security of your information, we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur while data is being transferred. We also put administrative procedures in place to, for example, only allow authorized personnel to access systems containing personal information. If you have access to parts of our websites or use our services (our institute, for example), you remain responsible for keeping your user ID and password confidential.

We will keep personal information only for as long as we need it to maintain our relationship with you, provide you with the products, services or information you requested, to inform our research into the preferences of our supporters, to comply with the law, and to ensure we do not communicate with individuals that asked us not to. When we no longer need the information, we will dispose of it securely.
Personal information is stored by us on computers located within the USA and/or Canada. We may also store information in paper files. We may transfer personal information to reputable third party organizations situated inside or outside the European Economic Area.
