Wishlist Foundation is respectful about the privacy concerns of the visitors to this site. Wishlist Foundation also recognizes the valuable potential of technology to help people communicate with the companies whose web sites they visit, particularly through user databases. WishlistFoundation.org is committed to providing our customers with a secure web site to donate and will only collect the personal information that is necessary to process your donation. Our users should feel assured that access to this information will be limited to the appropriate employees and will never be sold or given to any other company.
Our users should feel confident that the personal information is transmitted over secure servers. This information is necessary to properly process your donation. Our systems limit access to this information only to employees who may need it to process your order.

WishlistFoundation.org guarantees that our users will only pay for those items, which they have actually authorized.
Please read the following information to learn more about how and why we collect information and how the information is safeguarded.
What & When Personal Information is Collected
Wishlist Foundation will ask you for your information, including some personal data, if you use one of services below: Note: If you decide not to provide information, you may not be able to use some of our services.
Registration: In order to register, you need to share some personal information, such as your name and e-mail address. You do not have to be a registered user to visit WishlistFoundation.org’s web pages. But, you will have to register if you want to make a monetary donation or take advantage of the full features of our site.
Making a Donation: When a user places a donation through our web site, we will ask for your donation payment method preference, credit card account number and expiration date (if applicable), name as it appears on your credit card, “bill to” address, daytime phone number, and e-mail address. By making a donation, you become a registered user of WishlistFoundation.org. You can choose to store information needed to make a donation, such as your credit card number, shipping and billing addresses. If you change your mind about storing this information, you can amend or delete it by going to the relevant area of the My Account page and following the instructions. You can access this section using your registration password.
Sweepstakes, Contests and Surveys: Contests are open only to U.S. residents who are 13 years of age or older. If you are a teen under 16 years of age, you must have your parent or guardian’s permission before providing any personal information. When signing up for contests, we will ask for your name, address, state, zip code, phone number, gender, date of birth and e-mail address. This information will assist us in contacting and validating the winners. Contest sponsors may utilize your personal information based on which opt-in(s) you have selected on the contest entry pages to receive future information from them. In addition to the information stated above, we may also request information regarding customer preferences such as favorite brands or music. Providing answers to these questions is optional. This type of information assists us in providing products and services that might interest our users.
Newsletters: WishlistFoundation.org likes to keep its users informed about charitable events, latest donation gift items, special offers, contests and auctions through our online newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the e-mail newsletter at any time. If you would like to unsubscribe from the newsletter, you may do so by clicking on the unsubscribe link included in each e-mail or by e-mailing us at info(at)WishlistFoundation.org.
IP Addresses: WishlistFoundation.org uses IP addresses only to resolve system problems and deter unauthorized access to our web site.
How Wishlist Foundation Protects Your Information
We realize that our users trust us to protect their personal information. We take that task seriously. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. For example:
We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) authentication to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet help protect your online transaction information from third party nterception.
Unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions. This reality is true of all Internet use. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk.
How Wishlist Foundation Uses Your Personal Information
Wishlist Foundation collects personal information primarily to make our services more rewarding for you to use. We usually use this information for internal purposes, such as studying our users’ preferences. We may also use your information to contact you for account and promotional purposes.
Who Views Your Personal Information
Wishlist Foundation may only share your personal information with companies that perform services for us, such as fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mails, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, investigating fraud, conducting customer surveys, and providing customer service. They have access to information needed to perform their functions, but may not disclose your personally identifiable information for other purposes. Wishlist Foundation may share your personal information with other web sites for research and promotional purposes.
Some personal information is stored on servers owned by other companies. Only Wishlist Foundation has the right to access this information.
Children Under 13
Wishlist Foundation.com does not intentionally collect information from children under the age of 13. This policy is designed to protect children. Federal law requires us to take special steps to safeguard children’s privacy. If you register with us and we discover that you are under 13, we will delete your registration. We will not send you a message if we do this. If you are under 13 and want to make a donation, please ask a parent to place the donation for you.
Note to Parents:
If your child is under 13 and has become registered using a false age, please notify us, we will immediately close the account and nullify all personally identifiable information collected from them.

These cookies track information such as how often you visit our web site, what pages you view, and where you go after you leave the site. The cookies track your computer, not you. They are not connected to any personal information about you. This information will be in the form of a “Cookie” or similar file and will help us in many ways. For example, Cookies allow us to tailor a web site or advertisement to better match your interests and preferences or make shopping and purchasing merchandise more convenient for you. With most Internet Browsers, you can erase Cookies from your computer hard drive, block all Cookies, or receive a warning before a Cookie is stored.
