Privacy Policy

M-LISADA created this Privacy Statement to demonstrate respect for your privacy preferences and to disclose our information collection and sharing practices. Regardless of whether you provide us with your personal information via our website or in another manner, such as telephone, regular mail, or face-to-face, we strive to honor your privacy preferences. 

By accessing and/or using our Website, you have agreed to 1) abide by the practices described in this Privacy Statement, as may be amended from time to time, and 2) the transfer, processing and maintenance of your personal and sensitive information in the United States of America.

The personal information we collect may vary depending on the type of communication or transaction. It may include, but is not limited to, your name, postal address, zip code, telephone number, organization name, e-mail address, credit card, bank information or billing information.

You will be asked to provide your personal information when making donations, requesting communications, applying for a job with M-Lisada, and/or in connection with other M-Lisada business (whether it is via the web site, e-mail, direct mail or telephone communications). In the future you may be asked to provide information when making purchases at our on-line Gift Shop.

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to provide us with their personal information. If you are under 18, do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. In the event we learn that we collected personal information from anyone under the age of 18, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about anyone under the age of 18, please contact us at 

Information Security:  M-Lisada has a layered security in our systems and only designated employees have access to hard copies of your personal information. All on-line transactions are done on a secure server. This means that information entered on the transaction page is encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) before transmission. On secure pages, a "closed" lock symbol is displayed in the bottom part of your browser screen and the website address in the address bar at the top of the browser screen starts with an "https" instead of an "http". Donation pages are verified by PayPal and transactions are processed using a PayPal merchant account.

M-Lisada will share your personal information to complete your donations or purchasing transactions, to contact you about our on-going work, discuss employment opportunities and ways that you can further support our efforts to help the children of M-Lisada. Your personal information will also be used to provide you access to the various sections of our website that have been personalized for your needs. M-Lisada will not rent, share or exchange donor names and postal address with third parties. Except in the limited circumstances outlined below, M-Lisada will never intentionally share your e-mail addresses, phone numbers or financial information.

Exceptions: M-Lisada reserves the right to share your personal information in certain situations:

1. Credit Card Transactions, Electronic Fund Transfers, Payments by Check or Money Order and On-line Transactions. M-Lisada hires third parties to provide credit card, bank, payment and information processing services and order fulfillment services. If you choose to make an application for employment, make a donation on-line, by phone, through the mail or by other means, or make a purchase from our on-line Gift Shop we will share your personal information with our processing service providers. We make an effort to require all third party service-providers to hold personal information in strict confidence. While we believe these other companies are upstanding and will treat your personal information responsibly, we do not own or control them and cannot guarantee your privacy.

2. Necessity. If we have reason to believe that there has been some inappropriate interference with or use of our website, communications, charitable services or personal or real property, or if we have reason to believe that one of the M-Lisada website users, donors, employees or other related parties may have been injured or may have harmed some other party, we will disclose, without notice to you, personal information as we deem appropriate or if compelled by a legal or regulatory authority.

You may always change your privacy preferences by e-mailing us at

Website Links: In order to provide certain services and goods at our website, we contract with other companies and individuals. These additional services and goods may include "links" to other websites from our website. M-Lisada’s privacy practices may not be applicable at any third-party sites. Anytime you leave the M-Lisada website, we have no control regarding what information may be collected about you, nor do we control what third-parties might do with the information. For example, when you click on a merchant's name at the M-Lisada site, you will be connected with the third-party merchant's website (even if the M-Lisada name/logo is on the screen). This merchant website should have its own privacy statement applying to transactions at their website. It is important that you review any privacy policies on third-party sites carefully, BEFORE you use any services or programs offered.

Changes to Privacy Practices: From time to time, M-Lisada may revise its privacy practices to address changing technology, security measures and website functionality. We strive to provide you with timely notice of these changes. Please contact us if you have any questions about changes to our practices.

If you wish to change your privacy preferences or have any questions please contact us.
