Please read this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) carefully prior to using the Site.


All Site Users: When donating to our non-profit mission, cause, or vision, on our website or via other means, we may collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address, email address, phone number, purchase history, and other applicable information. We do incorporate a third-party payment provider to collect details on all payments.

Employees: If you are an employee of Le Coeur Etienne’s Heart of Sharing we may ask you for additional information such as your name, age, phone number, address, resume, employment eligibility, employment history, education, and skills (collectively “Employee Information”).

When you visit our website, we will automatically receive your computer’s IP address to help us gain additional insight into your browser and operating system. For more on automatic collection technologies, please see Section 8, below.


We use the information you provide to us through this Site to:

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information if it is required by a legal law enforcement entity or if you violate our Terms of Service. We may also disclose your information to approved third parties to complete purchases, donations, or transactions, as well as serve you with applicable marketing information.


When possible, we prefer all donors to use a credit card to complete their purchase, and upon doing so, our third-party payment provider will gather your payment information to complete the transaction. Le Coeur Etienne’s Heart of Sharing DOES NOT store your, or any donors, credit card information. Your transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted by our third-party provider.


The third-party provider(s) used by Le Coeur Etienne’s Heart of Sharing will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

There are expectations as some third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and payment processors may have their own privacy policies with respect to the information we are required to provide to them.

We do recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

Several providers may have locations that are outside of the State of Minnesota and, as such, are located in jurisdictions that may have laws and regulations that may not be known to you or us. If you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

Upon leaving our Site or you are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our Site’s Terms of Service.


We are not responsible and have not reviewed the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
