What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Information you provide to us directly: We may collect personal information such as your first and last name, phone number, postal code, billing information, and e-mail address when you sign up for our mailing list, volunteer with us or make a donation. We may combine this information with information collected from third party sources, such as third parties we partner with to provide our charitable services.

Information we collect from social networks: We may receive information about you when you interact with our site through various social media, for example, by logging in through or liking us on Facebook or following us on Twitter. The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to the MJSF website.

We use this information to operate, maintain, and enhance our organization and our services. We may use this information to communicate with you, such as to send you email messages, newsletters, and to follow up with you to offer information about MJSF. We may also send you service-related emails or messages (e.g., account verification, transactional communications, change or updates to features of the service, technical, and security notices).
