We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
We request information from the visitor on our donation form. A visitor must provide contact information (such as name, e-mail and mailing address) and payment information (such as credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and for sending receipt of the donation. If we have trouble processing a donation, the information is used by us to contact the visitor. If the visitor has given permission for the information's release, the visitor's name and contact information may be shared with carefully selected organizations and charities we feel our donors would want to know about. Where requested, we will provide information on larger donations to appropriate charities and donors for tax purposes. Financial and credit card information are NEVER released.
If you supply us with your postal address or e-mail address on-line you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on our programs and services. If you do not want to receive postal mail or e-mail from us in the future, please let us know by sending email to us at: (email@example.com) or writing to us at the above address and telling us that you do not want to receive postal mail or e-mail from us. Some mailings are prepared well in advance, so please allow up to three months for your request to be properly reflected on our mailing lists.

From time to time our site requests information from visitors via interactive features, such as surveys or quizzes. Participation in these features is completely voluntary and the visitor therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and e-mail), and information on the visitor's interests. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site and providing pertinent information to participants. Visitors' personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties.
If a visitor elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's name and e-mail address. Akshaya Patra will automatically send the friend a one-time e-mail with an introduction to Akshaya Patra and an invitation to visit the site. The one-time e-mail will include the name of the person making the referral. Akshaya Patra stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail and tracking the success of our referral program. The friend may contact Akshaya Patra at unsubscribe (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request the removal of this information from our database.
