USE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may use your personal information for our own marketing and non-marketing purposes. For example, we may use personal information to inform you of events, send you WRLC newsletters, request monetary contributions, send you promotional updates, respond to your requests, process your contributions, or fulfill your online orders. We may use non-personal information for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to, statistical or demographic analysis and improvements in the design and content of our website. We may merge your personal information with non-personal information and with other publicly available information to help us identify your preferences or interests.
We may share your personal information with our affiliates, vendors, or with unrelated third parties, including, but not limited to, other charitable organizations and contractors who provide services to us for marketing and non-marketing purposes. For example, we may provide your personal information to third parties that assist with the operation, administration, or maintenance of our website. We may also provide your personal information to third parties if we believe that our site is being used to commit unlawful acts; if disclosure is required to comply with applicable laws or regulations; or if disclosure is necessary to protect your safety or security, or the safety and security of our website or third parties. When we provide personal information to third parties we require them (to the extent feasible) to exercise reasonable care to protect your personal information and restrict the use of your personal information to the purposes for which it was provided to them. WRLC does not rent or sell any personal information.
We may share or transfer your personal and non-personal information if WRLC enters into a business transaction such as a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of substantially all of its assets.
We recognize that you may wish to limit the ways in which we use or share your personal information for marketing purposes. WRLC offers the following options:

Personal information that is collected online is stored on secure servers, which are protected by firewalls and other industry standard security measures. These security measures are intended to protect our servers from unauthorized access. However, no security system is impenetrable, and these systems could become accessible in the event of a security breach. In situations where you provide us with a credit card number, your credit card information will be temporarily stored on a secured server only for as long as necessary to process your payment. Please note that we cannot enforce or control the security of the computers, electronic devices, or electronic communication method that you may use to send emails and submit information to us over the Internet. You are responsible for ensuring that the computers, electronic devices and electronic communication methods you use will provide adequate security for communicating with us. We are not responsible for the disclosure or interception of information that you send us before we receive it.
