RI makes every effort to respect the privacy of its online visitors. At our site, we do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means we do not require you to register or provide information to us in order to view our site. RI only gathers personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e-mail addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. We ask for personal information on our online donation pages, and use this information to process your donation and to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes. We ask for personal information when you voluntarily sign up to receive our email updates so that we can send you these emails.
Your information is used by staff at RI who create and send email updates. RI's lists are not sold or traded to third parties. We will not share personally identifiable information with third parties unless authorized by the person submitting the information or required by law.
Credit Card Information Security
RI uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption to protect the security of your transaction and the confidentiality of your personal information. This makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send to us.
We use a credit card processing firm to process donations from you. This company uses your personal information solely to process the credit card transaction. The data is encrypted and stored to process recurring transactions. Your credit card information is not sold or traded to third parties. We will not share credit card information with third parties unless required by law.
If you still have concerns about the security of your credit card information, contributions may also be made by calling (202) 639-8660 or by sending personal checks or money orders to:
