In general, the Foundation uses the personally identifiable information it collects to pursue its mission and operations and to engage in the activity (and related activities) for which it was collected.  The Foundation may use it to communicate with you through periodic messages regarding services, events and other information and notices we believe you may find interesting or useful.  We may use it for confirmation of donations, registrations or other actions you take on this web site and for related customer service needs.
