Privacy Policy

Secure Ordering Online

Your online credit card transactions are secure with SisterCities.org. We use Secure Socket Layering (SSL), the industry-standard encryption technology (128-bit encryption) that ensures safe internet transmission of your personal information. Typically, your browser will provide an indication that you are entering a secure area (e.g. an icon on the browser window; a pop-up message on your monitor or an "https" in the URL indicator on the browser). A credit card purchase on our website is as safe as it is by telephone, mail or in person.

If You Send Us Personal Information

SisterCities.org will only collect personal information which you knowingly provide by purchasing merchandise, registering on the site, becoming a Sister Cities International member or some other voluntary action. If you provide personal information, we will use it to respond to your inquiry, answer your question and fulfill your order as you specify. We may also mail you information about Sister Cities International programs, activities, membership and support opportunities, product updates and special events. From time to time, you may also receive information on opportunities or offers from organizations outside of Sister Cities International. If at any time you do not wish to receive information on these opportunities and related offers, simply call 202.347.8630 to let us know.

We will not provide your email address to anyone outside of Sister Cities International membership without your permission to do so. With your permission, you may receive information about programs, activities, membership and support opportunities, product updates and special events from Sister Cities International, our members, our partners, affiliates and sponsors. When you receive any e-mail, you will always have the option to decline future electronic communication.
