Your gift amount or other personal information will not be included in this recognition. If you choose to make your gift anonymous, your name will not appear in any acknowledgements or lists that we make public. We use the information you provide about someone else when requesting a card be sent to them only to only to fulfill that request. We do not share this information with outside parties. We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

To further protect your personal information, we do not store any bank account information and we only have access to the last four digits of your credit card number once it processes through our Transfirst online payment system.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
