Information we may collect

The GLJF Websiite does not automatically obtain any individually identifiable information, such as e-mail addresses, from visitors. However, your Internet connection address ("IP address," a number assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Internet) and details about your computer such as its operating system, the browser you are using, and similar details, are recorded in our server logs. The only personal information We will collect is the information you provide when you contact Us or make a pledge or a donation. When you do, you will be asked to provide your name, postal address, e-mail address, other contact information, and, for donations, credit card information.

How we use this information

When you provide Us with your personal information, you are authorizing Us to use that information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We will use the information you provide to Us to communicate with you regarding any requests for information you may submit. We may use it for confirmation of donations and/or pledges. We will never sell, rent, trade, or otherwise share any personal information you may provide with any other organizations, except when required to do so as a result of a court order. We will not disseminate to third parties any personal information you provide to Us, except for your donation information, which is processed by an organization with which We have contracted to provide this service. We may use the information obtained from your computer's connection to our site to evaluate—anonymously and in the aggregate—statistics about usage of Our Web site as well as to analyze the design and functioning of Our site in order to make site improvements.


The GLJF Website makes limited use of cookies. A "cookie" is a small text file that is saved in your computer's browser cache that contains information related to your use of a site. We use cookies during your connection to the secure server when you make an on-line donation.


Our donation-processing contractor uses appropriate procedures to ensure the security of your personal information and to protect it from unauthorized access. When We ask you to enter your payment information, all industry-standard security protections, including data encryption, SSL transmission protocol, and secure data-storage servers, are used. Once your credit card account has been processed, your credit card information will not be retained.
