Privacy

 

What we do with personal contact information

When you are making a donation or performing other online transactions with us, we ask you for personal contact information such as your name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address. We may use this contact information to provide you with a receipt or financial report; to contact you to clarify or obtain information about an order you placed, or a donation you made; or to send you additional information about Lakeside.

 

If you make a donation, we may contact you from time to time (in writing only, never by telephone) to offer you an opportunity to make another gift. Personal contact information may also be shared with our agents. These are reputable companies we use for services such as shipping products or sending mail. We routinely assess the reputability of these agents in order to ensure the confidentiality of your information, and if we find that this confidentiality is not maintained, we will no longer use the services of that agent, and we will pursue any legal options available to us in that instance.

 

What we do with personal billing information

In addition to personal contact information, we ask for billing information, such as your billing address and credit card number, when you make a donation or purchase a product. We use secure servers to gather and process your billing information. These secure servers are hosted by our agent, PayPal, Inc., which is bound by our site policies. Your billing information is not shared with any other organizations.

 

What we do with other contact information

In some instances, we ask for contact information for people other than yourself including, for example, the mailing address of someone you wish us to notify of a donation you have made. The information we collect is used to send the donation notification or information you requested and/or to inform the recipient of updates and opportunities to get involved. Such contact information is not shared with any other organizations.

To request a refund, send an e-mail to help@monroelakesidefire.com, or write us at the address above. Refunds will be issued as a credit to the credit card used for the original donation.
