Privacy Statement

The Lisa Lopes Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization. This privacy statement covers the website.

Sharing Information
We do not have any third party advertisers on our website. And, we do not share personal information with any third parties.

For some of our special events we may offer online registration. During registration a user is required to give contact information in order to be contacted if there is a change in the date or venue.

We request information from the user on our online donation form. A user must provide contact information and financial information. This information is used for billing purposes. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.

Information Use

We do not track individuals' use of our website. No information that a user chooses to give us is correlated with their activity on our website.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We do not use cookies in our site, except in the donation portion of our site. There, the cookie keeps track of the data you enter during that single visit. When you exit from your browser the cookie is deleted from your computer. Your donation activity is in no way correlated with your activity on the rest of the site. However, all donations from a single name/address are correlated in our database.

Log Files
Like most standard website servers, we use log files. These include total page views, total hits, total files sent, total files cached, other response codes, total KB request, total KB transferred, total KB saved by cache, total unique URLs, total unique sites, total user sessions and total log file entries read/processed. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. No information collected in our log files is linked to personally identifiable information.

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line. When our donation form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the industry standard, SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked or open.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is maintained in a restricted environment in our offices. Only employees who need information to perform a specific duty are granted access to personally identifiable information. If users have any questions about the security at our website, users can send an email to

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
