The personal information that we need to respond appropriately may include name, address, zip/postal codes, email address, interests and similar information. This information is available to Brother’s Brother Foundation and third-party service providers involved in the operation of this site. Brother’s Brother Foundation will not identify you as a donor in our print newsletter and other publications without your express authorization.

We may use IP addresses to help us diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users’ movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personal information and are not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes at any time.

Protecting your information is of great importance to Brother’s Brother Foundation and something we take very seriously. BBF uses CAPTCHA verification on all forms and maintains a secure website protocol. Our methods are the accepted industry standard for security protocols but no data transmission over the internet, is ever 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

Brother’s Brother Foundation does not rent, sell or exchange your personal information. BBF will release personal information involving instances where disclosure is required by law or regulatory authorities.
