Credit Card Information
We recognize the importance of respecting the integrity of credit card and related contact information that you provide and limiting access only to certain third-party vendors (as discussed below). Also, we utilize software to encrypt credit card transactions, which works to protect card numbers and other confidential information so that it cannot be improperly viewed, intercepted or altered.
Donations in Honor or Memory of Another

Any contact information that you provide about the person or family you designate will be used to honor your request to send a notification.
The Site may offer users the opportunity to take self-assessment tests. All responses provided to self-assessment tests are anonymous. For the purposes of scientific research and usage analysis, responses will be associated with an anonymous numerical identifier that will not be linked to browser cookies or your IP address (see below for information on cookies and IP addresses). If we publicly release user response data, it will only be in aggregate (group) form.
Information We Collect Automatically
Our Web servers and Web servers of third-party vendors (discussed below) automatically collect certain non-personally identified information, such as the pages a user visits, and the domain name of a user’s Internet service provider. We use this information to measure traffic and usage patterns. The servers also may log Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes, as well as for aggregate site usage statistics. Also, in some instances, we may use IP address logs to anonymously track session and website usage and behaviors. We do not share this information with other organizations nor do we link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. However, outside vendors (as discussed below) also may collect this information and use it for their own purposes.
Users who do not accept cookies from our Site can access Site content, but may not be able to use certain website features.
Do Not Track
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in their browsers to let third parties know that they do not want to be tracked online. You can disable or enable this setting by changing the DNT settings in your browser. We do not track users across third party websites, and therefore do not respond to DNT signals, and except in the case of analytics cookies as described above, our Site limits tracking to the internal uses described above. Partnership to End Addiction does not authorize the collection of personally identifiable information about users for third party use through advertising technologies without user consent. However, some third party sites, including potentially those that have content embedded on this Site or to which this Site links, may keep track of your browsing activities and may set cookies on your browser. If you are visiting such sites, your browser may allow you to set the DNT signal so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked. Please review their privacy policies to understand how you may be tracked. As noted, since our Site does not respond to DNT signals you may have set in your browser, we cannot fully control what third parties may do.
