Keys Privacy Policy

Keys to Understanding Life ("we" or "our") values your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains our information collection practices through (“Website”), and via email through the Website's "Contact" page. From time to time we may update this Privacy Policy. Notice of any updates that contain any material changes will be posted on our Website on the "News" page, and we encourage you to check our Website periodically for any such changes.


The Information We Collect

This notice applies to all information collected on or submitted to the Website and/or via email (through our Contact page). We collect non-personally identifying information concerning the usage of our Website by visitors, such as the date and time the visitor accessed our Website, information concerning the visitor's web browser, the visitor's general geographic location, and other access-related information. In addition, we (or a third-party acting on our behalf), may use "cookies" or other tools in order to learn how a visitor uses our Website, such as which pages are viewed and for how long, and whether a visitor returns to our Website.

We also collect data that you personally enter or submit to us using the Website. We may collect this personally identifiable information in connection with online forms and inquiries, and email correspondence.

If you choose to make a donation through the Website's "Take Action" page,  we are required by law to collect and retain your name and mailing address for the purpose of sending you a Statement of Donation for your personal tax purposes. We are also required to maintain that information in our secured files as part of our accountability to the IRS.


The Way We Use Information

We use access-related and usage-related information to create summary statistics and to determine the level of interest in information available on our Website. We also use personally identifiable information provided by you internally, as appropriate, to handle your requests, which may include responding to communications received by you, maintaining or improving our products or services, marketing purposes, enhancing our Website, and meeting any legal concerns or obligations. We may use cookies and similar tools to improve our Website and to provide better service to return visitors of our Website and our customers.

If you provide us with your email address or mailing address through any online forms we may have, inquiries, or by Snail Mail, we may contact you if you so request and if our resources permit, or to send you a Statement of Donation at the end of the year. If you donate, you will receive one Statement of Donation only at the end of the year in which you made your donation.

We will not use any personally identifying information, stories, email or mailing addresses or other material that you provide to us through any online forms or inquiries on our Website or in our publications unless you give us your expressed permission. In addition, please note that your use of the Website and any material received by us through the Website is subject to our Terms of Use.


Our Information Sharing Practices

We may provide certain third-party service providers such personally identifiable or other information as may be necessary for those third-party service providers to perform services for us, including database management, Internet services, and marketing services. We will not provide your email address, mailing address or other personally identifiable information to any third parties for the marketing of third parties' goods or services without your consent. However, in the event of a merger or acquisition of our organization, the sale of substantially all of its assets related to the operation of our Website, or other change of corporate control, all information we have collected online may be transferred to or controlled by the surviving or successor entity.

In addition, we may provide personally identifiable or other information in response to a lawful request from a law enforcement or government agency or in response to a formal request in a civil action that on its face meets the requirements for such a request. In other respects, we will not share personally identifiable information with any entity for commercial purposes without your consent.


Our Commitment to Data Security
We employ reasonable security measures to protect sensitive information, including personally identifiable information, in our possession. However, no electronically stored information is completely secure. Consequently, while we strive to secure the information we have collected online concerning you, we cannot guarantee such security, and you ultimately provide such information at your own risk.


Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important to us. For that reason, we do not knowingly permit anyone under the age of 18 to communicate with us via our Website without parental consent. Our Website is not intended for children under the age of 18. We encourage parents to supervise and participate in their children's Internet activities, and we urge children to exercise caution and consult their parents before providing any personally identifiable information on the Internet.


Contact Information and Opt-Out Methods
You can correct errors in the personally identifiable information we have concerning you (which would only come from your email contacts with us or by you making a donation) by sending us a request via our Contact page. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access or making corrections.
