Friendship Senior Options is committed to ensuring the privacy and accuracy of your confidential information. We do not share personal information gathered from our web servers.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. ship a brochure.
If you supply us with your postal address online, you may receive periodic mailings from us.

You agree that we may call you at the telephone number provided, even if you previously registered on a Do Not Call registry.
Friendship Senior Options partners with Forte Payment Systems for online donations to the Friendship Senior Options Foundation. Personal information is shared with third party banks to the extent necessary for Forte Payment Systems to complete the e‑check transaction. We also may release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law or verify information with other companies for fraud protection and risk reduction.
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data for donations), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the web page. Firewalls and other security technology are used to prevent system servers and computers from being accessed by unauthorized persons. It is the merchant’s responsibility to protect against unauthorized access to the system through misuse of individual Merchant ID, User Name and Password. To assure of no unauthorized access, please be certain you log off the system when finished with your session and protect your Merchant ID, User Name and Password used to access your merchant account.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or residency counselors) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
If you have any questions about your dealings with Forte Payment Systems for online donations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (866) 290‑5400.
