Your consent is not an obligation to receive any of our services or participate in any of our programs.
How is the information used?
Non-personal information (non-PI) is collected to allow us to analyze how our website is used and to improve the content and service the website provides.
PI is collected for analysis to improve the content of the website and the services we provide the user.
Gift of Life International owns the collected information and will not sell, trade, or rent the information to others. We may use the information to continue contact with the user. This may include contact such as follow-up calls, e-mail correspondence, or mail correspondence to follow-up on the contact or to provide marketing information about promotions, new services, or important website changes. Gift of Life International may share this information with its business partners for the specific purpose of a promotion or service offering. We may also use your information to evaluate or conduct a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about our website users is among the assets transferred.
We will not use PI for purposes other than to provide you with our services or offerings, or as otherwise expressly permitted by applicable law.

How is the information disclosed?
Where applicable, we may disclose your PI to any affiliated business entities or third parties necessary to provide our services and/or offerings to you. This includes, where applicable, third parties involved in the administration and operation of our services. We may also disclose your PI to other third parties, such as:
- Where we sell or share any or all of our business and/or our assets to a third party, whether through bankruptcy proceedings or other sale or merger.
- Where we are legally required to disclose your information, including, but not limited to, pursuant to a valid subpoena, order, search warrant or other law enforcement request.

Are “Cookies” used on the website?
We do not track our users across time or across websites. We do not use flash cookies.
How is personal information safeguarded?
Gift of Life International utilizes commercially reasonable methods and mechanisms such as firewalls, intrusion monitoring, and passwords to protect electronic information. Physical security methods such as locking devices and 24 hour premise monitoring are also employed. Finally, access to PI is limited to personnel with a need-to-know basis. Nonetheless, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically on our website, and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.
