In order to process donations, a functional email address and, of course, a valid street address for credit card validation will be collected.  A phone number is optional.  This data is collected by PayPal and may be used by The Harp Guitar Foundation for the purpose of records-keeping and may be used on occasion to inform you of new features, services and special offers we think you will find valuable.  Your personal and financial information will never be rented, bartered or sold to other users or third-party companies.

Please be aware that The Harp Guitar Foundation will never ask you for a social security number, driver's license number, or other sensitive personal information via email.  If you receive an email purported to be from The Harp Guitar Foundation, Harpguitars.net, Gregg Miner, or any other representative asking for any of this sensitive data, do not reply.  Please notify us immediately.  If you suspect that you may have been a victim of fraud, we highly recommend you immediately take the appropriate steps to ensure your security.
