The Way We Use Information:We use the information you provide about yourself when making a request, volunteering, or donating only to complete that request, fulfill your volunteer requirements or complete your donation. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete those requirements except in the case of Team Affiliations, in which case we share your name and email address with the person designated as the Team Captain or Team Leader.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive or to send information to you about our upcoming activities. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties except as indicated above for Teams.
You can register with our website if you would like to receive our newsletter communications as well as to receive updates on our activities. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form, volunteer for our programs or make a donation or purchase.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and, potentially in the future, to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our Commitment to Data Security:To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Our Commitment to Children's Privacy:Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Information:You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by sending an email to us at the address below. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
