Partners and Affiliates

We may share your personal information with organizations to which you donate, as well as affiliated organizations and other entities working on their behalf.

Service Provider Arrangements

We may transfer (or otherwise make available) your personal information to our affiliates, partners and other third parties who provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use service providers to host our servers or send communications on our behalf.

Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose personal information for their own purposes.
