Lauren’s Kids has created this Privacy Statement to demonstrate respect for your privacy preferences and to disclose our information collection and sharing practices. Regardless of whether you provide us with your personal information via our website or in another manner (e.g. text, telephone, regular mail or face-to-face), we strive to honor your privacy preferences.
1) abide by the practices described in this Privacy Statement, as may be amended from time to time, and 2) the transfer, processing and maintenance of your personal and sensitive information in the United States of America.
Depending on the type of communication or transaction, the personal information we collect may include, but is not limited to, your name, postal address, zip code, telephone number, organization name, email address, credit card, bank information or billing information (for donations, product sales).
You will be asked to provide your personal information when making donations, requesting communications, volunteering and/or in connection with other Lauren’s Kids business (whether it is via the website, email, direct mail or telephone communications).
The Protection of Vulnerable Persons Act, which went into effect October 1, 2012, designates all individuals in Florida as mandatory reporters of child abuse. Therefore, Lauren’s Kids is obligated to report to the Florida Department of Children and Families Hotline any disclosure of abuse of a minor, specifically in those cases where the abuse has not already been reported to the DCF Hotline.
Lauren’s Kids uses Paypal for secure online transactions. Complete information about Paypal’s security can be found on their website.
Personal information will be shared internally at Lauren’s Kids to complete your donations or purchasing transactions, to contact you about our ongoing work, discuss volunteer opportunities and ways that you can further support our efforts to help prevent abuse and heal survivors. If you are an educator who uses our Safer, Smarter Kids curriculum, your personal information will also be used to provide you access to the various sections of our website that may be personalized for your needs. Lauren’s Kids does NOT share, rent or exchange donor names and postal address with third parties. Except in the limited circumstances outlined below, Lauren’s Kids will never intentionally share your email addresses, phone numbers or financial information.
Lauren’s Kids reserves the right to share your personal information in certain situations:
Credit Card Transactions, Electronic Fund Transfers, Payments by Check or Money Order and Online Transactions. Lauren’s Kids utilizes third parties to provide credit card, bank, payment and information processing services and order fulfillment services. If you choose to make a donation online, by phone, through the mail or by other means, we will share your personal information with our processing service providers. We require all third party service-providers to hold personal information in strict confidence.
Necessity. If we have reason to believe that there has been some inappropriate interference with or use of our website, communications, charitable services or personal or real property, or if we have reason to believe that one of the Lauren’s Kids website users, donors, employees, volunteers or other related parties may have been injured or may have harmed some other party, we will disclose, without notice to you, personal information as we deem appropriate or if compelled by a legal or regulatory authority (See: INFORMATION RELATED TO CURRENT SUSPECTED ABUSE).
