All PII collected on behalf of our customers is retained until the customer removes it or 18 months after the customer has ended its relationship with Donating Cryptos, whichever occurs first.

Donors may choose to donate a gift in memory of someone, or in honor of someone. This particular information is shared with the Organization, only if the donor chooses to enter this information on the payment form. Otherwise, the system will neither share the information with the Organization, nor will this data be save or stored.

Donors may choose to send an email to a friend about a listing on any of the catalog checkout pages. This email is considered a private communication between the donor and the friend. The Organization will not be notified of this communication, and no data will be saved or stored.

Donation / Order

We request information from a customer on our donation/application form. A Customer must provide contact information here (name, billing, and shipping address) and financial information (credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the donor.
