Support Our Mission

Your donation of $25.00 or more can help us reach our goal of providing free service.




Our privacy policy is straightforward:
  • We don't collect detailed personal information
  • Email addresses are used to provide our service
  • Mailing addresses are used for our service, and for tax-related notification
  • Session cookies are used to help secure the web site
More detailed information is provided below.

Personal Information

The only physical mailing addresses maintained in our database are those for the sponsored recipients. As the account owner, you are the only user on this web site with access to that information. Date of birth for recipients is optional information, and we collect it to support planned future services. Names and nicknames are stored in the database and used only to provide our web site services. None of this information is shared with third parties in any way.

Email Addresses

Email addresses are required information for you (the account owner) as your login name, and for all friends and family. We store these email addresses in our database for validating incoming email and for communicating with you and friends/family as a normal part of providing our services. No email addresses in our databases are shared with third parties in any way. We also collect email addresses from anyone making an on-line donation via PayPal, to enable us to provide applicable end-of-year tax information regarding the donation.

Mailing Addresses

We require mailing addresses for Write2Them recipients because it is required for mail delivery. We also collect mailing addresses from anyone making an on-line donation via PayPal, to enable us to provide applicable end-of-year tax information regarding the donation. We may also use your state of residence to generate reports that summarize donations. No mailing addresses in our databases are shared with third parties in any way. Account owners specify the mailing addresses for their loved ones in basic training, and are the only people allowed to see it. Friends and family that account owners invite to use our service do not have access to the mailing address through our web site -- only the email address.

Cookies

Our web site uses "session cookies" to maintain information that helps us secure our web site and your account information. Cookies are small pieces of information passed back and forth between your web browser and a web site. Our cookies are set to expire if your session is inactive for "too long", in which case you are returned to the login page. This lessens the risk of other people using your session if you forget to logout. Session cookies are not stored on your computer's disk drive, and our cookie only contains information that our web site places in it.

We do not use cookies to collect personal information -- end of story.
