This policy discloses what information is gathered about you when you visit any of our web sites or correspond directly with us. It describes how we use that information and how you may control the disclosure of such information.
We collect two kinds of information about visitors to our web sites:
a.) Information visitors provide when submitting requests to receive news and project reports; participating in program activities, completing surveys, or donating funds.
b.) Aggregated tracking information (see #3 below) we collect when users interact with and navigate through our web pages.
2. Personal Information:
When you sign up to receive newsletters and/or program and organizational news material online, you must provide your name, e-mail address, and mailing address. We never sell, rent or trade your e-mail address to any third party.
We will attempt to fulfill your inquiries by e-mail as soon as possible and to the best of our ability. Your name and address may also be added to our US Mail list. From time to time, we will send additional information about particular charitable activities that may be of interest to you.
We may use third party commercial vendors to perform activities on our behalf, such as fulfilling mailing campaigns, processing credit card payments, managing mailing lists, and delivering packages. These third parties are prohibited from using your information for any purpose other than the specific purposes for which they have been retained. We may exchange our US Mail address list with similar Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) organizations we deem relevant and appropriate. For information regarding "opting out" of use of your name and address in regard to mailing lists, see section 5 below.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information when we believe such disclosure is appropriate, necessary or required to comply with the law, a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us or to protect the rights, property, or safety of the organization's staff, our patrons, or others. This may include, but is not limited to, exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
3. Aggregated Tracking Information
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
Though, we may use a third party web analysis service to improve our web site performance and visitor experience, no personally identifiable information, such as names or e-mail address, will be disclosed to such service.
