Information Shared on Third-Party Sites

Except as otherwise expressly discussed in this Privacy Policy, this policy only addresses the Foundation’s use and disclosure of information we collect from you.

We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose any personal information.

Cookies 

Cookies are small files used to send information from our Sites to your web browser. The Sites use session cookies, which are destroyed when a user closes the Internet browser, and permanent cookies, which remain on the user’s hard drive until manually deleted by clearing the cache. Permanent cookies allow users to utilize the “remember me” feature to avoid having to log in to the sites after closing the previous Internet browser session. Cookies are also used in user analytics, and the user’s personal identity is not tracked.  Cookie settings can be controlled in your Internet browser to reject some forms of cookies automatically.  If you view the Sites without changing your cookie settings, you are indicating your consent to receive all cookies from the Foundation’s Sites. If you do not allow cookies, some features and functionality of the Foundation’s Sites may not operate as expected.

Children

We do not knowingly collect personal information from or market to children under the age of 13.

Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, the Foundation cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk. The Foundation will not be liable for disclosures of your information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we do our best to ensure its security on our systems by making reasonable efforts to protect the information.

Security

Our Sites’ donation, registration, form request, and ecommerce systems use SSL encryption to protect sensitive data transmissions from your computer to our Sites. You are able to see when the SSL encryption is active either by the “padlock” icon at the top or bottom of your browser. In certain areas, password protection is used to protect your privacy and security. Any information provided to the Foundation is treated with care and discretion. The Foundation will take a proactive approach to ensure the information is kept private and not misused.

Breach 
You will be notified immediately, and pursuant to applicable laws, in the event of a breach of unsecured protected health information or personally identifiable information.

Data Retention and Destruction

The Foundation retains information only as long as needed to fulfill the purpose for which the information was collected unless a longer retention period is permitted by law.  In some jurisdictions, there are limits on how long we may retain your personal information. The Foundation disposes of information within a reasonable amount of time after it is no longer needed for business purposes by erasing electronic media so that the information cannot be read or reconstructed. If you have any questions about the retention periods for holding your personal information, please contact us.

Questions about the Privacy Policy

Your privacy and security are important to us all. We pursue a full-disclosure approach to responsibly care for the information you have entrusted with us, and we depend on information sharing as our principal means to best serve you. This is why we are committed to building a trusting relationship with you. We will continually monitor feedback and seek to improve our services to meet your needs.
