How We Use Cookies

 

We send “cookies” to your computer and use other technologies to enhance your online experience.  A “cookie” can be either permanent (i.e., it remains on your computer until you delete it) or temporary (i.e., it lasts only until you close your browser).  A “cookie” is a small text file that helps us recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor’s ongoing access to and use of the site, and track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that can lead to web site improvements.  If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you can deny or accept the cookie feature using a simple procedure available in most browsers.  If you block cookies, however, you may lose some website functionality.

 

Is My Credit Card Information Secure?

 

We use a variety of safeguards to protect the security of your credit card transactions.  We use technologies and processes such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, physical security and other measures.  These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you send to us.  When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other security measures.

If you provide Yoshiki Foundation America with personal information when you visit our web site, we may use the information in our programs and activities.  We may enter your name into one of our databases so we can contact you to obtain your input, provide information about our programs and events, or request contributions.

 

Yoshiki Foundation America may share financial donor postal mailing lists with other non-profits.  On occasion, Yoshiki Foundation America may share information about you with vendors and service providers who assist us with our activities and programs.  These vendors and service providers help us with functions such as fulfilling orders, managing data, and processing donations. In addition, we make disclosures as required by law.
