If a user wishes to subscribe to our mailing list and/or newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.
From time-to-time our site may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
The Foundation will not reveal any personal information that users provide to us to any third party. The Foundation uses visitors’ IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. We also use it to gather broad demographic information about our users in general. This information does not contain anything that can identify users personally. We may combine demographic information supplied by a subscriber at registration with site usage data to provide profiles, in aggregate form, about our users and their preferences in the content of the site and advertising.
Using e-mail addresses provided at registration or otherwise, the Foundation periodically sends out e-mail to our subscribers about activities and programs of the Foundation,and our partners. Third parties will not contact our subscribers through the use of our e-mail lists except through message from our partners within the e-mail themselves, or unless users ask to be placed on a list to receive e-mail from our partners on subjects of interest. Upon request, the Foundation will remove users (and their information) from our database or permit them to “opt-out” of any further e-mail or contact.
This web site is not directed to children. Although the Foundation does not specifically seek to obtain any information from children, there are certain areas of our websites that children may visit. the Foundation does not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under 13. If we find that we have inadvertently collected information from individuals under 13 years of age without parental consent, we will promptly delete that information from our database.
The Foundation is not responsible for the content or the privacy polices of websites to which it may provide links.
The Foundation uses reasonable precautions to keep the personal information disclosed to us secure and to disclose such information only to responsible third parties after permission from the user.
