Our Privacy Policy

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.
As part of our commitment to maintain the privacy of our web users, this privacy policy discloses the privacy practices for FriendshipSeniorOptions.org. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the web site, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  4. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

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.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via mail, telephone, and/or email if you are interested to tell you about news, promotions, upcoming events, or changes to this privacy policy.
If you supply us with your postal address online, you may receive periodic mailings from us. In addition, if you supply us with your telephone number, you agree to be contacted by a Friendship Senior Options, Friendship Village or GreenFields representative at the telephone number you have provided. 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.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

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:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.


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.


Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on this page.
If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately via telephone at (847) 884-5300 or via email at info@myFSO.org.
