Collection of Information, use and sharing

You will be prompted to provide Faith and Law with personal information on some areas of our website, for example when you make a donation, register to receive newsletters, or register to attend an event. The personal information we collect; names, addresses, emails, credit or debit card information, etc., is strictly limited to the information you voluntarily provide to us via email, sign up forms, online donation, or other direct contact from you. This information will only be used to fulfill your specific request, unless you give us permission to use it in another manner. We are committed to using the personal information you provide only to support your relationship with Faith and Law.

This personal information will not be rented, sold, or shared with anyone outside of Faith and Law or our service providers without your consent, unless we believe that it is necessary to comply with the law, protect a person’s safety, or address fraud or security issues. This applies to information collected both online and offline.

When you sign up to receive emails, your data will be processed by a secure third-party service provider (Mailchimp). When you give a financial donation, your payment is processed through a secure third-party service provider (NeonCRM). All sensitive financial data is encrypted and is not kept or seen by our staff. Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards are implemented during financial transactions initiated via our website.

Changes to Personal information

When you sign up for one of our mailing lists, we collect your name, postal address and email address. If you want to make corrections, or opt out of any future messages from us, you can do so by contacting us at

Online Contributions

Contributions given to Faith and Law support year-round programs providing Christ centered lectures and discussions for Capitol Hill staff. We are committed to good stewardship of your donations, and follow industry guidelines in processing your gifts.
When you make a donation on our website, the personal information you provide us is used to process your donation and add you to our customer relations management system (NeonCRM). The collection and transfer of sensitive data such as credit card information is protected using Internet Encryption Software, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol. Payment information is securely transmitted to our payment processor and it is not stored on our end. We maintain your name, email address, and donation amount in order to comply with accounting requirements, manage receipting and donation history.

To request a refund, email us at or call (202) 643-7685. Refunds are returned only upon Faith and Law validating your information. Refunds will be made using the original method of payment - except cash donations which will be returned via check. No exceptions to this rule will be made. Please allow 30 days for your request to be processed.

If you feel there is an unauthorized transaction on your credit card account, please contact your credit card merchant to dispute the charge directly.

If you unintentionally mailed a check to Faith and Law and it was not made payable to Faith and Law but inadvertently deposited, you will need to dispute the transaction with your bank directly. Due to regulatory banking guidelines Faith and Law is unable to refund these types of transactions.

Children’s Online Privacy

Protecting the privacy of children is extremely important. Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.

Data Security

We take significant precautions to ensure that your personally identifiable information is kept secure both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information such as credit card data, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way by using Internet Encryption Software, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol. Any information you enter is encrypted at your browser, sent over the public Internet in encrypted form, and then de-encrypted at our server. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page. The only time we collect this information is when you make an online donation or register for an event that has a registration fee.

We also protect your information offline. Only authorized employees from Faith and Law, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to personally identifiable information.

Changes to this Policy

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version will always be posted here. By continuing to use our website and apps, and by communicating with us via this site and email, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy.
