Personal contact information we collect and what we do with it:
Our website does not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it to us. Any time that you provide information to our website, you are providing consent to the collection of information.

When you make a send a message through our website, make a donation, purchase a product, or subscribe to our online newsletter, Aiken Women’s Heart Board may ask you for personal contact information such as your name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address.

If you make a donation, you may be contacted by us on occasion to offer you an opportunity to make another gift, or to inform you of promotions involving third-party sponsors that will directly benefit AHWB.

We do not use third party telemarketers or other outside vendors to solicit funds or otherwise communicate with our donors on our behalf. You will always have the opportunity to opt-out of future communications from us.

Personal billing information we collect and what we do with it:
In addition to personal contact information, we ask for billing information, such as your billing address and credit card number, when you make a donation or purchase a product from the Site. We use secure servers to gather and process your billing information. These secure servers are hosted by our agent, Blackbaud Merchant Services (BBMS), which is bound by our site policies. Your billing information is not shared with any other organizations, and your credit card number is not retained once your transaction has been authorized and processed.

Financial transactions and our secure servers:

Moreover, once your transaction has been completed, your credit card number is not retained.
