What Data We Collect
Sharing Our Smiles collects contact information including name, email, phone, address, and involvement preferences on various sign-up or other forms throughout our website.

Financial information is collected during the online donation process but is not stored by Sharing Our Smiles. When placing a donation online, you will be re-directed to an external vendor that receives your payment information and processes the donation. The vendor stores financial information you provide to it according to its privacy policies. Sharing Our Smiles only receives and maintains a donor’s contact information, including name, email, phone, and address.
