The web servers that host our website automatically collect non identifying information, including IP addresses, the type of operating system in use (e.g., Macintosh or Windows) and the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Netscape or Internet Explorer). When you view the website or use its features, we may collect certain non-identifying information from you by using small text files known as cookies. We use cookies for several purposes, such as, to determine the total number of unique visitors to the website. You are always free to decline cookies, but in doing so you may not be able to use certain features on our website. The “help” segment of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to configure your browser to not accept new cookies, how to have the browser inform you when you receive a new cookie, and how to erase cookies from your hard drive.

We may also use web beacons to count page visits by our users, to determine pages users visit, to access our cookies, and to otherwise improve your experience on the website. Again, this information is collected in the aggregate and in a manner that does not identify any individual user.

We only collect personal information (such as first and last name, gender, home or other physical address, e-mail address, home or mobile phone number) when you voluntarily submit it to us. For example, if you make an online donation, we will collect personal information from you.

We may use information collected from website visitors for any of the following purposes: (1) to send donation requests, marketing and other communications (such as our newsletters) to you; (2) to process and acknowledge your donation; (3) to allow us to notify visitors of upcoming events, promotions, or activities on our site; (4) to fulfill purchases made online through online auctions or other fundraising activities; (5) to respond to specific requests from our visitors; (6) to provide any necessary notices to our visitors; and (7) to protect the security or integrity of our site.

Your personal information will be used only by BKMF or a Service Provider performing a business, professional or technical support function on behalf of BKMF. Also, if you use PayPal™ services to make a donation or any other payment to the BKMF, we will share your name, address, and the amount of your donation with PayPal in order for them to process your donation or payment. We will transfer or otherwise disclose personal information in response to judicial process, to comply with legal requirements, to provide information to law enforcement agencies in connection with an investigation on a matter related to public safety, or to protect our rights, property, this website, or its users. Except as provided in this Policy, we disclose your information only with your permission. We do not sell (or provide) mailing lists to third parties.

We use PayPal™ services for all credit card purchases made on the website. In order to process your credit card transaction we will share your personal information such as your name, address, and amount of your donation with PayPal™. We also will send to PayPal™ your credit card information (such as credit card number and expiration date) that you voluntarily provide on the site. We do not retain or store your credit card information permanently. Once you submit your completed order, we send the credit card information to PayPal™ and no longer retain any credit card information.

If you have a PayPal™ account, you may elect to go directly to the PayPal™ site to complete your donation. The collection, use and sharing of information that you provide to Pay Pal is subject to the terms of use and privacy policy contained on the Pay Pal site.

Your information may be transferred to computers located outside your state, province, country or other jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be deemed as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United States, please be advised that we process and retain information in the United States.
