Personal contact information we collect and what we do with it:
When you are making a donation, expressing an interest in LINK, or making an inquiry, LINK asks you for personal contact information such as your name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address. We may use this contact information to provide you with a receipt or information; to contact you to clarify or obtain information about a donation you made, or a LINK student you have referred; or to send you additional information about LINK.
If you make a donation, we may contact you from time to time (in writing only, never by telephone) to offer you an opportunity to make another gift, or to offer services from third parties that will directly benefit LINK. We will always give you the opportunity to opt-out of future communications from us.
Personal contact information will not be shared with any other outside agencies. As The LINK Program is under the umbrella of the Seattle Chapter of AIGA. AIGA, a non-profit, will have access to your contact information, but will not solicit you for more information nor donation.
Personal billing information we collect and what we do with it:
In addition to personal contact information, if you elect to make a donation, we may require billing information such as your billing address and credit card number, when you make a donation or purchase a product. We do not currently gather this information online. Your billing information is not shared with any other organizations, and your credit card number is not retained once your transaction has been authorized and processed.
Financial transactions do not currently occur on the LINK site.
How to view or change your information:
If you wish to modify the frequency of future communications from LINK, please write to us at our headquarters or e-mail address below.
Also, with the exception of credit card numbers, which are not retained, you can view and request changes to all the information you have given us, including any mailing lists you may be on, by contacting us.
