All of this information is collected and used only in the aggregate, where we can use it to generate overall reports on our visitors, but not reports of personally identifiable information on individual visitors.
Users can visit the site without revealing any information about themselves. If you have voluntarily provided a name and email address, we may use that information to send you e-mail newsletters, notifications, or other information. You may opt-out of any or all marketing communications from Boston Rising in any commercial e-mail we send or at any time by contacting us by e-mail, mail, phone or fax at:

Our policy is to use the information we acquire from visitors for internal purposes only, and we maintain appropriate security measures to keep this information private.
Online Donations If you choose to make a donation to Boston Rising via our online donation form, you will be asked for personal billing and credit card information. Boston Rising’s online donation form is hosted on a secure site, using high-grade encryption and the industry-standard https security protocol to ensure secure transactions. The donations are processed by Authorize.net. (That company’s web site can be found at http://www.authorize.net.) The credit card information that you provide at the time of the donation only will be used to process your donation and will not be used for any other purposes.
Aside from information necessary to process your online donations, which may be used by Authorize.net, we do not share, sell, or rent your personally identifiable information with anyone. If you make an online donation to us, your information will be added to our database, and you may be contacted about other Boston Rising activities, news, and/or fundraising campaigns unless you specify otherwise in writing.
We do not share, sell, or rent your personally identifiable information with anyone. However, in order to cooperate with legal authorities, Boston Rising may in some circumstances be required to disclose personally identifiable information in response to requests from law enforcement authorities, or in response to a subpoena or other legal process. In such unlikely circumstances, we will provide only the information required. We may also turn over information about you if we believe we must in order to prevent a violation of the law, and by accepting this policy, you consent to our doing so, in our sole discretion. You also consent to our disclosing information about you in the course of legal proceedings if we are legally required to do so, if we reasonably believe that doing so may mitigate our liability, or if doing so will assist us in enforcing our legal rights.
