Do Not Track

We do not track our customers over time and across third party websites, and we do not provide targeted advertising.  Thus, we do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Third parties may have content embedded on our Website (including social media features) or may set cookies on a user’s browser to obtain information about the user’s visits to certain websites, including ours.  However, we have no control over these third-party cookies, and these third parties cannot collect any other Personal Information from our Website unless you provide it to them directly.

Non-Personal Information

This Notice does not restrict our collection, use, or disclosure of any aggregated information or information that does not identify, or cannot be reasonably linked to, any individual.  For example, we may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to our Website, and we may display this information publicly or provide it to others.  We may also share aggregate data with our customer and donors to show program satisfaction and improvement rates.  However, such information is anonymized, and we do not disclose personally identifying information other than as described herein.

Disclosure and Sharing of Personal Information / Third-Party Providers

We may disclose Personal Information we collect from you: (1) to our subsidiaries and affiliates; (2) to contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business; (3) to fulfill the purpose for which you provide it; (4) to a buyer or other successor in the event of a sale or transfer of some or all of our business or assets; (5) for any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information; (6) to comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including responding to any government or regulatory request; (7) if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our clients, or others; or (8) for additional purposes with your consent.  We do not sell or otherwise share personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes.  And when we do share your information with our service providers, they are contractually prohibited from retaining, using, or disclosing your Personal Information for any purpose other than that specified in the contract.

To provide you with our services, we must communicate with our third-party providers.  These third parties may also have privacy policies that differ from ours.  For example, they may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services, and they may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content.  We do not control these third-parties or their privacy practices, and this Notice does not apply to any third-party website or service you may access through our Website.  If you have any questions about a third-party provider’s privacy policies or advertising, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

We will retain your Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for approximately 24 months, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Website or if we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.

Data Processing

We have implemented measures designed to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access and disclosure.  The use of, and access to, your Personal Information by us is restricted to employees and contractors who need to know that information to provide services to you.  We maintain safeguards to limit access to your Personal Information.  Unfortunately, transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure.  Although we do our best to protect all information submitted to our Online Services, we cannot guarantee the security of any such information.  Any electronic transmission of information is at your own risk.
