Sharing of Information. When you donate, purchase tickets for events, or otherwise contribute financially, personal information is collected. We use third parties such as PayPal for the collection of funds. They require personal information including name, address, phone, email, order specifics, and credit card numbers to process payments. We, in turn, receive all this information except the credit card numbers. We share that information with nonprofit organizations who formally co-host our events (tours with Preservation Durham, for example). We do not share that information with sponsors, for-profit corporations, or other third parties. We will occasionally send emails on behalf of other nonprofits.

For example, we may tell a sponsor that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women came to an event, but we do not disclose anything to identify those individuals.
