Payment Information We Collect When You Donate Or Buy Through the Site
Our online payment system is powered by Stripe and PayPal. They provide us with the payment technologies that allow us to accept donations via credit card and in a variety of other ways such as Apply Pay and Google Pay.

The information that Stripe and Paypal collect will include payment method information (such as credit or debit card number, or bank account information), purchase amount, date of purchase, and payment method.
Different payment methods may require the collection of different categories of information. The payment method information that we collect will depend upon the payment method that you choose to use from the list of available payment methods that are offered to you on the site. When you make a transaction, Stripe and PayPal may also receive your name, email, billing or shipping address and in some cases your transaction history to authenticate you.
