This information is to be used solely to further our mission and to support Lions clubs worldwide in serving their local communities and the world community. Visitors, donors or Lions may opt out of any of our direct marketing activities at any time. We may use service providers, such as Web site traffic consultants, to carry out certain activities on our behalf.

Online donor privacy
If you make a donation or make a purchase via LCIF’s online forms using a credit card, these details are transferred to a secure, online payment service hosted outside of LCIF. Any payment information collected is protected by software during transmission, which encrypts all of your personal information so that it can be safeguarded over Internet channels. We reveal only a limited part of your credit card number when confirming a donation, order or other transaction. We do not give out your credit card or other account information to third parties unless you authorize us to do so or if it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities, including, but not limited to, acknowledging a donation by sending a recognition.
LCIF protects personal information by using password-protected areas and by restricting access to such information. It is important that you protect your password. Paper files containing personal information are kept in areas with restricted access.
