When you register on our website, we might store some information on your computer in the form of a “cookie” (i.e. a small piece of text that stores information on your browser in your computer’s hard drive) or similar file. We do this to collect information about your activities on the website, make it possible for you to keep track of items you wish to purchase on our website, deliver to you content that is specific to your interests, and/or to prevent you from re-entering all your registration data at each connection. We also use conversion tracking cookies as part of our ad campaigns in order to analyze trends, gather broad demographic information, and monitor site traffic patterns that can help us further develop and improve the design and functionality of our site. The cookies shall only be used to obtain non-personal information to improve your online experience. No other information is stored in these cookies.

HOW SECURE IS THE ASTRAEA LESBIAN FOUNDATION FOR JUSTICE’S WEBSITE?
Our website has industry standard high encryption security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. The Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice makes every effort to protect your online order information by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts your order information to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone other than the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice. We do not store your credit card information.
Protecting the privacy of minors is important to Astraea. For that reason Astraea does not collect information from those Astraea knows are under 16 and no part of the Website is intended to specifically attract anyone under 16. If Astraea becomes aware of having information about anyone under 16, Astraea will promptly delete the information.
