What personal data we collect and why we collect it

If you sign up to receive our periodic email newsletter and / or program and event information via our MailChimp subscribe form, your first and last name and email address is saved in our MailChimp database. This data falls under the MailChimp data protection policies.

If you shop at the SOAR Store, you will receive an invoice via our PayPal account to pay for the merchandise and any shipping. If you donate to SOAR via PayPal, you choose what information you want to share with SOAR. Please know that your email address and any information you provide is saved in our PayPal account information. This data falls under PayPal data protection policies.

If you mail a donation to SOAR, we add your name and mailing address to our constituent resource management (CRM) database, to be able to send an acknowledgement and a year-end tax receipt. If you donate to SOAR via PayPal, your donation information is integrated with our CRM to provide relevant acknowledgements and year-end tax receipt. Our CRM is Little Green Light.

Little Green Light is accessed through SSL-encrypted connections—the same level of security used by online banks. This type of connection establishes the authentication of the web site and the web server, which protects against man-in-the-middle attacks. Additionally, it provides encryption on both sides of the communications to protect against eavesdropping and tampering with or forging the contents of your transmission. Internal access to Little Green Light servers and customer data is strictly controlled.
