Lung Association. E-communications from the American Lung Association are only
issued through the direct consent of each unique visitor.
Online donors are also offered the option of choosing to let the American Lung

The "ALA Survey":
During any number of site promotions (want to win a t-shirt?), visitors may
be encouraged to fill out an online survey for the American Lung Association
of Minnesota. This survey asks for contact information and user profile information
like sex, age, education, internet connection, whether a family member has lung
disease, area of lung health interest and occupation. We also ask if the visitor
has ever donated online, and if so, how much, and whether the visitor has ever
done any volunteering in the past year. These questions help us define the needs
of our users.
We also ask if the visitor would allow the American Lung Association of Minnesota
to contact them in the future via email.
The American Lung Association of Minnesota reserves the right to offer an
