VISITING THE SITE
You can view many portions of the Site anonymously. In this case, we may collect anonymous information (i.e., information that cannot, separately or combined, be used to personally identify you) about your visit as set forth below. If you submit a request for further information about our programs or services, request to volunteer at one of our programs, make a donation to us or otherwise communicate with us, you may provide certain personally identifiable information, which we may collect. Additional details on the specific information we collect and how we use the information is provided below.
COLLECTION AND USE OF ANONYMOUS INFORMATION
When you visit the Site anonymously, we may automatically collect anonymous information about your visit that will not be used to personally identify you. This information may include, but is not limited to, your IP address, operating system, client type, whether you came to our Site from one of our advertisers, whether you have previously visited our Site, how long you stayed on our Site, what you viewed on our Site and browser type and version. This information is used for administrative purposes, such as to generate usage statistics, to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Site, and to ensure that the Site and Service are accessible to the widest possible audience. Information collected while using the Site anonymously is never tied to a user account or otherwise associated with the identity of a user.
We may also track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information (“Aggregate Information”) from all Site users. This Aggregate Information is used to help us diagnose technical problems, administer the Site and Service, and improve our offerings and marketing. This Aggregate Information is never linked or otherwise associated with any personally identifiable information that we may collect.
COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Collection of Personal Information
We receive and store information you enter our Site, when you call or email or communicate with us through social media (Twitter, Facebook, et al.), or participate in events or other promotions. This may include information you provide when you engage in a transaction, such a donation or volunteer submission, or otherwise contact our office. In order to complete a donation or volunteer form submission, you must supply us with personally identifiable information about yourself, which may include, without limitation, your email address, password, name, phone numbers, credit/debit card numbers and expiration dates, billing address, and other billing information.
We use your personal information to administer the Site, process your donations, facilitate and organize our programs and services and send you important communications and as otherwise described below.
Other Uses of Your Personal Information:
We may use your personal information to periodically send information that we think you might find of interest from our company or its affiliates such as coupons, bonuses, new products and services, special offers, or other important product changes.
You always have the option to opt out of our internal marketing communications by contacting us via email, phone or the “unsubscribe” link in our email communications. Please note that opting out of receiving these communications will not remove your personal information from our files and we will still contact you as necessary to carry out your requested transactions.
We do not sell, share, or rent your personal information to third parties for purposes other than as discussed below. We will only provide your personal information:
- to certain third-party providers whose software or services interface or otherwise may receive information from, or provide information to, the Site, or to our third-party program partners.
- to our third party vendors who provide services on our behalf. These services may include, but are not limited to, payment services and customer or technical support, and analytics. We will only permit these third parties to access, use and maintain the information that they need in order to provide these services on our behalf and subject to confidentiality obligations. They are prohibited from using the information for any other purpose.
- to a third party that may acquire our business.
- to comply with any legal obligation, subpoena or other court order, and as necessary to enforce any of our Terms of Service or to protect the rights, property or safety of our systems and network for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We take your privacy and the protection of your personal information very seriously. While no service provider can guarantee absolute security when communicating over the internet or wireless networks, we are committed to taking steps to help secure any personal information that may be in our possession. For example, we use electronic security measures, including SSL network connections, which are reasonably designed to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure, consistent with industry standards.
You should always be mindful and responsible whenever disclosing information online that the information is potentially accessible to the public, and consequently, could be collected and used by others without your consent.
