Under no circumstances will Camp Fire Alaska il sell, rent or give your personal information to anyone or to any company for marketing purposes.

Camp Fire will send personally identifiable information about you to other companies or people when:

1. We need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested.

In certain areas, Camp Fire uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions. Security of credit card numbers and other personal information is a top concern to Camp Fire Alaska. Camp Fire’s online donation form has sophisticated encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your credit card information.

To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal financial information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Address line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from “http” to “https.” To help ensure that others will not have access to your credit card information while on Camp Fire’s website, please close your browser window when you have finished your visit, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.

Children’s Privacy

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and rule (COPPA) protects the personal information of children under the age of 13. This applies to individually identifiable information about a child that is collected online, such as full name, home address, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child. The Act and Rule also cover other types of information—for example, hobbies, interests and information collected through cookies or other types of tracking mechanisms—when they are tied to individually identifiable information. It is important for you to understand this law; we encourage you to read more about COPPA.
