We have created this statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. We do not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. This policy is your guide to how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our Web site.
1. Use of Links
Throughout our Web pages, we provide links to other servers which may contain information of interest to our readers. We take no responsibility for, and exercise no control over, the organizations, views, or accuracy of the information contained on other servers. Creating a text link from your Web site to our site does not require permission. If you have a link you'd like us to consider adding to our Web site, please send an email to email@example.com with the subject "Link Request."
2. Reading or Downloading
We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account, or princeton.edu if you are connecting from Princeton University's domain), the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked to our site. We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.
3. Online Profile Updates and Donations
If you complete the Profile update form and share your personally identifying information, this information will be used only to provide you with more targeted content. We may use your contact information to send further information about our organization or to contact you when necessary. You may always opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the "Opt Out" section below.
We use a variety of safeguards to protect the security of your credit card transactions and personal information. YouthCare’s online and offline donation processing systems comply with PCI Security Standards, a set of comprehensive requirements for enhancing payment account data security. Our online donation processor hosts our secure giving pages on PCI Compliant servers and uses high-grade encryption and the industry-standard https security protocol to ensure secure transactions. This secure server software, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. In addition, all transaction data and contact information is protected with industry standard computer/network security, following the recommendations of our outside auditors and is protected from outside access with Cisco Firewalls.
4. Sending us an Email
You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a Web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer you questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest.
We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties.
If you sign up for one of our email lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have requested. We won't share your name or email address with any outside parties.
5. Opt Out or Change Your Contact Information
Our site provides users the opportunity to opt out of receiving electronic communications from us through a special online form. You may also update your contact information previously provided to us through our online registration form.
