Each time you make a donation, however, we will give you the opportunity to tell us not to share your personal information in the ways described above (except in the case of employer matched donations) by selecting to be “anonymous” during the checkout process.

If Sinnhug merges with, or becomes an affiliate of another organization, we will ensure the confidentiality of any personal information involved in such transactions and provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Aside from the purposes described above, we will not disclose your personal information without your consent, unless: (1) we need to respond to a subpoena, court order or legal process; (2) an emergency situation requires disclosure before your permission can be obtained (e.g., situations involving potential threats to personal safety), or; (3) we determine that disclosure is needed to protect our rights or property, or the rights or property of another person.

We may share aggregated demographic and statistical information with our other partners. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

Information about Children Under 13

Sinnhub.org is a general audience website, and does not collect information about a visitor’s age.
