We are committed to using our best efforts to maintaining the security of your Personal Information. When users submit Personal Information for a newsletter signup or a donation, the information is stored in a password protected database on the TROFIE server. In addition, some elements of the request are forwarded via email to the appropriate department within TROFIE. While the online donation process does require entry of a credit card account, that account information is only used to seek approval from the donor's bank. Once the transaction is complete, no portion of the account information is retained or forwarded. The balance of the Personal Information is stored in our permanent donor records. Although we use our best efforts to protect the security of your Personal Information and our system, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, no transmission via the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of this and other factors beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the security of the information that you transmit to or through our Website. Therefore, you assume that risk by using the Website.
We use aggregate information collected by cookies to track site usage by volume. We use email addresses that people enter through queries or through newsletter signups to send out our newsletter and to update people on TROFIE information, as well as to solicit donations. We use donor records for tax purposes and periodic mailings soliciting donations. Contractors working on our site or emailing our newsletters or other communications may use the information under contract to us.
If you do not want to receive email and/or mailings from us in the future, please let us know by sending an email to us at the contact address below in the paragraph "How to Contact Us", requesting to be removed from our email/mailing list. In addition to this, all email correspondence that we send you will include a link which when accessed by you, will enable you to remove yourself from our mailing lists. Please note that there might be a brief delay between when you submit your request to opt-out and when it is processed and reflected in our systems; accordingly you might continue to receive communications from us for a limited time after you unsubscribe.
