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
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.
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.
