Since 1959, the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation has served as the nonprofit arm of the Lions Clubs of Oregon to provide sight and hearing assistance for people living in Oregon and Northern California. In partnership with the Lions Clubs of Oregon and Northern California, we offer programs that serve the most vulnerable members of our community.
The Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation is a 501c (3) tax-exempt organization. Your donation is tax-deductible in the United States.
OLSHF will not sell, share or trade our donors’, members’, or recipients’ names or personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. This policy applies to all information received by OLSHF, both online and offline, on any Platform (“Platform” includes OLSHF website and mobile applications), as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications. To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation. OLSHF will remove your name from our mailing list, email list or telephone solicitation list at any time, at your request.
What information does OLSHF collect?
OLSHF collects minimal and anonymous information from users when they visit or register on our site, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to a survey or fill out a form. When visiting or registering on OLSHF’s website, users may be asked to enter their name, e-mail address, mailing address or phone number. They may also visit without registering but anonymous statistics on what pages are visited and for how long are made available to OLSHF. Donors’ information is collected by a contracted third party website vendor, not OLSHF. See below.
What do we use your information for?
Information OLSHF or its third party vendor collects may be used in the following ways:
Website visitor and donor information will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company or organization for any reason whatsoever, without a person’s consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the program services requested.
Email addresses voluntarily provided may be used to send people email news, information, and updates pertaining to our mission or the services they have requested. Note: If at any time people want to unsubscribe from receiving email news, OLSHF includes a detailed opt-out or unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email news.
How do we protect your information?
OLSHF implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of personal information when people submit personal information to us. Our online donations vendor offers the use of a secure server. All supplied contact and credit card information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into the provider’s database that is only accessible to those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. After any transaction, a donor’s private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) are deleted and not stored on our servers or databases.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
OLSHF does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer personal information to other organizations or parties. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, processing donations, conducting our business, or providing services, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release personal information if it is required by law. At any time, donors or users may request that they are removed from all databases and mailing lists, and OLSHF will immediately comply with their request. At least once annually in donor appeals, OLSHF will include an option that allows people to request copies of any information that has been collected about them on OLSHF’s website and an option to be removed from our database.
Third party links
OLSHF may link to other websites on its website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. OLSHF, therefore, has no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, OLSHF seeks to protect the integrity of our website and welcomes any feedback about these links.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
OLSHF is in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act). OLSHF does not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. OLSHF’s website and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.
