Privacy Policy

The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc. (HJF) is committed to safeguarding your privacy. This statement explains our online information practices, and describes what personal information we collect and how it is used.

Making a Donation

When you make an online donation on we collect personal information such as your name, billing address, and email address. This personally identifiable information is used to acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes and possibly to include you on HJF's email mailing list unless you elect to be removed from that list. When you send a donation in honor or in memory of someone and request that an acknowledgement be sent to another individual or a family, we will use the name and address of that individual or family for acknowledgement purposes only.

Credit Card Payments

Credit card or bank account numbers are collected by third-party payment vendors such as VeriSign and/or PayPal. The use of this information is based on the policies and procedures of the applicable third-party payment vendors, and not this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to read each company's privacy policy before submitting any personal information on the HJF website. HJF will not collect or have access to any complete credit card numbers or bank account information our third-party vendors (VeriSign and/or PayPal) collect to process online transactions.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Except as otherwise expressly noted in this Privacy Policy, HJF will not (1) disclose your personal information without your consent, unless we need to respond to a subpoena, court order or legal process, or (2) share your personal information with third parties by selling, giving, trading or any other method.

Links to Other Websites

Other websites, including links to other websites that appear on from time to time, have their own privacy policies. When you provide personal information at any one of those sites, you are subject to the privacy policy of the operator of that site, and not this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to read each such privacy policy before submitting any personal information.

Privacy Policy Updates

Our privacy policy is reviewed from time to time to make sure we continue to serve the privacy interests of our customers. If our information practices change materially, we will post the policy changes on the privacy page of this website to notify you of these changes. Please check our website periodically for more information on how we use the data we collect.
