Due to the unique nature of Internet transactions, we have additional policies and procedures in place to protect your personal and financial information on the Internet.
Email and email addresses
We collect your email address when you provide it to us. Unless you send us your email address, we don't collect it. If you do give it to us, the Foundation will never provide that address to anyone other than our affiliates or service providers. We will only use your address to communicate with you regarding the servicing of your accounts or to make you aware of products and services that may be of interest to you. When you send the Foundation an email, we may retain your message and our response for quality assurance purposes. It is important to remember that regular (nonencrypted) email is not secure.
Planning tools and calculators
Information that you input on the website while using any of our planning tools and calculators is not captured, stored, or used in any way other than to provide you with the information you're looking for at the time you use the tool or calculator. These calculators were built only for the purpose of helping you.
We recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of children online, and we recommend that all minors ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet. We do not knowingly collect personal information from consumers under the age of thirteen without appropriate parental consent, and we are committed to protecting our children's privacy.
