What information is collected by Little Hands Can?

We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us.


For example, donors may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information).  If a donor, or a website visitor, contacts us by email they may provide us with their email address, and name. Providing data is required in these contexts in order for us to process your donations, requests, or respond to inquiries.


We may also collect personal information when you subscribe to our newsletter, sign up for our email list, or sign up for our events/activities.  Providing your name and email in these cases is required so that we may get you the information necessary for events, activities, volunteer opportunities, and other relevant information regarding our organization.

Our commitment to data security

To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. For example, we use industry accepted tools and techniques such as SSL and double opt-in for our email subscription to protect against unauthorized access to our systems.  

All information provided to Little Hands Can is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Little Hands Can. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure.  While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
