Effective date: Oct. 15, 2007

Thank you for reviewing our Privacy Policy and Use Agreement. We recognize that visitors to our site may be concerned about the information they provide to us and how we treat that information. This policy addresses those concerns and may be updated periodically.

This website is owned and operated by Special Olympics Minnesota. You may contact us at:

We strive to respect and protect the privacy of our online visitors. For each visitor to our site, our server automatically recognizes only the visitor’s domain name, not the email address.

For purposes of improving our website content, aggregate information is collected on what pages of the website are visited. We only gather personally identifiable data (such as names, addresses, zip codes, email addresses, etc.) that are voluntarily submitted by a visitor, and we only use such data to provide requested services. To provide such services, it may be necessary for third parties performing services for us or the site sponsor (technical auditors, developers, order fulfillment operations, contractors, etc.) to have access to the personally identifiable data to perform their jobs. Website visitor information is used for internal Special Olympics Minnesota purposes only. We do not rent or sell the personally identifiable data of visitors and donors, but we may share such information with the third parties that the website operator believes may offer services of interest to the visitor, upon government or court requests (voluntary or involuntary) or in connection with a merger or similar transaction.

Security of Credit Card Information

We care about the safety of your credit card transaction: secure server technology is used throughout the online transaction process. We will have to share your credit card and other information with our vendors and credit card companies to process billing. We use the https security protocol to communicate with your browser software, which is the industry standard. Contributions may also be made by calling 800.783.7732. Or, if you would prefer, mail us your contribution to the address provided above.

Refund Policy

Special Olympics Minnesota will allow for the cancellation or refund of a credit card transaction within 30 days of the date of purchase. Either the purchaser’s card will be credited or a check will be mailed via U.S. Post to the purchaser. Questions and concerns can be directed to 800.783.7732.

Cookies and Pixels

A “cookie” is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from Special Olympics’ web server and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are used to collect non-identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific website. Special Olympics Minnesota uses two different types of cookies: session-based and persistent cookies. Session-based cookies expire at the end of a browser session, so once you close your browser the cookie simply terminates. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you remove them and are used to provide internal website analytics. You can manually delete all cookies, including persistent ones, within your browser privacy settings menu. In addition, Special Olympics uses “pixels,” or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These pixels do not collect identifying information.

Third Party Advertising Cookies Opt-Out

Special Olympics allows third parties to place cookies on our site for advertising purposes. This Privacy Policy does not cover the collection methods or use of the information collected by these vendors. These vendors have their own privacy policies and may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To remove yourself from some or all NAI member advertising programs, please visit the NAI Opt-Out Page and follow the relevant instructions. Please note that if you delete, block, or otherwise restrict cookies, or if you use a different computer or Internet browser, you may need to renew your opt-out choice.
