When you donate to the RAF, sign up for our newsletters, or purchase products, you agree to provide the RAF with certain personal information. This information includes, but is not limited to: full name, postal address, phone number and email address, financial information (credit card number, etc., for donations or product orders placed with the RAF) and demographic information (e.g., zip code, postal code, hometown, gender, purchase history information and age). Please review this privacy policy periodically as we may update it from time to time. This privacy policy was last revised on February 1, 2011. Each time you provide us with information, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy at that time. You agree that you are expressly and affirmatively consenting to our use of the information that you provide, and consenting to receive mail & emails, and occasional phone calls as necessary as described below in this privacy policy.

  2. Changes to Privacy Policy

    This policy may be revised over time as new offerings of services are made by the RAF or as we incorporate suggestions from our members.

  3. How Your Information is Used

    1. Order and Payment Processing, Customer Service, Credit Card Issuers and Quality Assurance: We use contact information to help us efficiently perform transactions, to deliver the services you have requested, to perform quality assurance, sales analyses and other business analyses, and to contact you in connection with any orders or donations you have placed with us. We may also provide your contact information to your credit card issuer or to credit card processors for their purposes. No other use of your financial information will be made except to satisfy any law, regulation, governmental request, or judicial order. If you make a purchase through our website, or register with our website, you will provide us with an email address where we, or these service providers, may contact you for the purposes described in this paragraph.
    2. Contacting You for Offers and Promotions: You agree to allow the RAF to use your personal information to send you marketing and promotional materials. The RAF may also send you marketing and promotional materials. These materials may include, but are not limited to: newsletters providing you with current information about the RAF, and promotional offers for goods and services from the RAF or third parties. You have the option to opt out of receiving these offers at any time.
    3. Use of Demographic Information: The RAF may use your demographic information to perform business analyses or to tailor communications to your interests.
  4. Disclosure to Governmental Entities

    The RAF may disclose specific contact information when we determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with law, to cooperate with or seek assistance from law enforcement or to protect the interests or safety of the RAF.

  5. Information from Other Sites

    The RAF may place links to other web sites operated by other parties and from time to time may include information and links to third party web sites in our promotional email. Some of these other web sites contain our brand names and trademarks and other intellectual property that we own; others do not. When you click on these links and visit these other web sites, regardless of whether or not they contain our brand names, trademarks and other intellectual property, you need to be aware that we do not control these other web sites or these other web sites’ business practices, and that this privacy policy does not apply to these other web sites. Consequently, the operators of these other web sites may collect different kinds of information about you, and may use and disclose that information in different ways than we would if it were collected on the RAF website. We encourage you to review their privacy policies and remind you that we will not be responsible for their actions.

  6. Non-US Users

    If you are not a resident of the United States, you understand and agree that the RAF stores and processes your information on computers located in the United States, and by providing any data to the RAF, you consent to the transfer of such information to the United States.

  7. Security Precautions

    The RAF has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We use secure socket layer (SSL) technology to help protect the security of commerce transactions. We encrypt your contact information and financial information as it travels over the Internet. After we process your credit card information, we delete all but the last 4 digits of the credit card number, date, amount and transaction id. Your information may be transferred to and maintained in whole or in part on computer networks which may be located outside of the state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction in which you reside, and may be stored on equipment or in facilities leased or licensed from third parties. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information and make all commercially reasonable efforts to do so. The RAF cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. This privacy policy does not apply to any information, including such photographs, that you submit for use in publicly available areas. We ask that you do not submit any personal information, including contact information or financial information, for display in public areas, as other people who use the Services will see it. If you submit such information for display in public areas, the RAF cannot prevent it from being used in a manner that violates the law, your personal privacy or your safety. By submitting such information for display in public areas, you assume the risks and sole liability arising as a result of such information being displayed.
