Collection of information
The Coast Guard Foundation web servers automatically collect non-identifying information from your visits to coastguardfoundation.org to help measure our website activity and improve the user experience. Non-identifying information includes session cookies to track usage through coastguardfoundation.org, and IP addresses for viewing internet domains and monitoring time spent on our website.
We also collect information that you provide online and offline such as your name, age, gender, contact information, and credit card details. This online information is gathered when you, for example, visit coastguardfoundation.org to register for an event or make an online donation. This information is transmitted via a secure server using encryption technology. Offline information is gathered through physical registration forms and postal appeals.
We do not sell your information to other organizations or individuals, and our mailing lists are never sold to third parties. We may share financial donor postal mailing lists with other non-profits for one-time use by the other non-profit. Occasionally, we may send mailings on behalf of other organizations we have partnerships with to benefit the Coast Guard Foundation.
If you are a financial donor to the Coast Guard Foundation, you may request that we withhold your mailing information from any list exchanges with other non-profits. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and in the subject field type "Mailing List Opt Out" and provide us your name, email, or postal address depending on how you made your donation to our organization.
Coast Guard Foundation’s email marketing program complies with anti-spam regulations and all email correspondence includes necessary language to allow recipients to opt-out of email correspondence. We honor all requests to be removed from our database and/or mailing list. Opting out occurs when a person or company simply prefers to be removed from the mailing list for a non-specified reason, as well as when the Coast Guard Foundation is notified by a family member that a donor is deceased.
