Because we care about the safety and privacy of children online, we comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulations establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and we have designed our sites to block our knowing acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age-related information is requested.
When you make an ecommerce transaction through our site, any credit card information provided is only used to immediately process your transaction. We do not retain your credit card information once the transaction is processed. We have put in place appropriate security measures to protect your personal and financial information. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving financial data from our site.
We use log files and Google Analytics to assess the aggregate level of traffic on www.thelugarcenter.org, including what pages people are visiting, and to diagnose any potential problems with the website. This log file does contain an IP address that gives us insight on the general geographic area that visitors are coming from but not information on a specific individual.
