INFORMATION COLLECTED AND HOW WE USE IT
You always remain in control of the information you provide to the Company. We may collect two types of information about visitors: personally identifiable information (such as name, address, telephone number, email address, etc.) which you have voluntarily submitted to us, and aggregate information (such as information about how many visitors log on to our sites, the pages they access, etc.).
In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing personal information about yourself, in which case you may, however, be unable to take certain actions, such as make a donation. We may collect, maintain and use personal information you have voluntarily submitted to contact you, including via email, to respond to your comments or requests for information, or to contact you if needed in the course of providing information about our services that you may have requested. To better meet your needs, we may supplement the information we collect with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.
DATA SHARING AND TRANSFER.
The Company will not trade, sell or share your personal information for use by any third party without your consent, unless required by law or as disclosed to you when the information is collected.

Your personal information will generally be stored in the Company’s databases, which are located in the United States. Specific information is provided on the Site’s consent or registration form, where needed. Our policy is to ensure that your information is always granted the same level of protection no matter where it is stored. In the event that the Company is involved in a transaction such as a merger, stock purchase or sale, or sale of substantially all of the Company’s assets, your personal information may be transferred to the other party in such transaction.

Upon our collection of your personally identifiable information, the Company may use such personally identifiable information internally, separately or in combination with pre-existing information, for the following purposes:
