We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us, to guard against potential fraud, and to comply with laws and regulations.  We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to provide assistance to you (such as to collaborate with experts to fulfill a technical assistance request or to contact potential referral resources on your behalf) or to complete a transaction upon your request (such as submission of your online payment or donation information via a third party payment processor) or as stated below.

We may disclose information you have provided to us if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to: (1) comply with the law, government action or with legal process served on us; (2) protect and defend our rights or property, including without limitation this Website; or (3) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public (by way of example, if you provide false information or pretend to be someone else, information about you may be disclosed as part of an investigation).  If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with prior notice (unless such notice could result in harm to others) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure.  We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail, if you have given us a postal address.  If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.  In addition, we may independently object to requests for access to information about users of our Website that we believe to be improper.  You may opt out by contacting us as provided below.
