Personal Information

RI uses its best efforts 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. For example, we ask for personal information on our online donation pages, and use this information to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes.

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.

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 310-478-1200, or by sending personal checks or money orders to:
