If you are making a donation, the credit card information that you provide at the time of donation is used only to process your donation and will not be used for any other purposes.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics will not disclose this information to anyone except in accordance with any rules you agree to as a contestant and, as described above, to manage safecosmetics.org and database.
Information You Provide: When you use safecosmetics.org, you may be given an opportunity to post comments, biographical information or your personal story. If you choose to include any personally identifiable or other information in a Site forum accessible to others, you do so at your own risk. By submitting such a story to us, you give us permission to edit it, post it on safecosmetics.org and use it in appropriate settings designed to illustrate the impact of our environment on human health. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is not responsible for the disclosure or use of any information that you choose to post or otherwise make available to others through safecosmetics.org.

Use of Information
Neither the Breast Cancer Fund nor the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics sells or rents any information you provide us through safecosmetics.org.
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics uses the anonymous information you provide for the purposes of evaluating how safecosmetics.org is used. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics will disclose this information, without notice, only if required to do so by law, to comply with any legal proceeding, or to protect and defend the rights or property of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
In addition to the uses specified under the relevant sections above, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics may disclose personally identifiable information to third-party vendors or law enforcement officials in order to prevent abuse of, or harm to, our systems, services, members, sponsors, users, or other members of our community. We also may cooperate with law enforcement agencies in providing personally identifiable information to identify anyone who may be using safecosmetics.org for illegal activities. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics also may disclose your personally identifiable information as otherwise required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order.
Security of Personally Identifiable Information
We attempt to protect your personally identifiable information from theft, loss, or alteration with security measures that are reasonable and consistent with industry standards. For example, we use encryption technologies whenever transferring certain types of sensitive information, such as credit card data. However, due to the nature of the Internet and wireless networks, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics cannot guarantee that personally identifiable information will be kept 100 percent secure, despite our efforts. Information may be viewed or tampered with while in transit to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, while being stored at the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, or when the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics transmits such information to third parties. The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics assumes no responsibility for the security of your information that we may transmit to third parties once that information is in their possession.
Because you can access your personally identifiable information in your Campaign for Safe Cosmetics account through your username and password, it is important you not share your password with anyone. Also remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit to safecosmetics.org. This is to help ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer or mobile device in a public place, such as a library or café. You are entirely responsible for any use or disclosure of your information by anyone to whom you have given your password.
Because the Internet is global, information about you that we collect or that you submit to us may be transferred, processed, stored, and use in countries (including the United States) other than the one in which you live, where laws regarding processing of your personally identifiable information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. By using safecosmetics.org, you explicitly consent to such transfer, processing, storage, and use of your information.
