Who We Are
About This Policy
This Policy does not apply to any information you may provide to us through other means; for example, at a live event, via mail, or via telephone. Likewise, this Policy does not apply to information collected directly or indirectly by our third party service providers.
What Type of Information Does The Corporation Collect?
We collect the personal data that you volunteer while using the Site. This includes but is not limited to demographic, contact, profile, registration, medical, and other personally-identifying information.
If you communicate with us regarding the Site or our services, we will collect any information that you provide to us in any such communication.
We use analytic and reporting technologies to record non-personal information such as Internet domain and host names, Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser software, operating system types, page views, clickstream patterns, and the dates and times that the Site is accessed. We may use a variety of methods for automatically collecting such “passive” information. We also contract with third party vendors to help manage, monitor and optimize the Site and to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising, communications and how visitors use the Site. To do this, we may use web cookies.
We are able to determine the IP address from which you access the Site. Essentially, your IP address is a numerical address that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as web pages you want to view) can be transmitted to you. Your IP address does not tell us who you are.
What About Children’s Privacy?
We do not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 18. If you are under 18, you may use the Site only through your parent or guardian.
What Does The Corporation Do With The Information It Collects?
The Corporation uses the personal information collected from you to help us track the use of the Site and to improve the Site to serve you better. The site also permits, but does not require you to share your information with others for purposes of mutual support and education. You agree that we may use your information to contact you to inform you of important changes or additions to the Site, and to send you administrative notices or any communications relevant to your use of the Site.
If you sign up to receive newsletters or other subscription-based communications from us, we will use the email address you provide to send them to you. If you wish to be removed from a subscription list after having signed up, please email us at .
When Will The Corporation Disclose My Information to Third Parties?
The Corporation does not share, rent or trade your personal information with third parties for promotional purposes.
We reserve the right to disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process or government request served on us; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of a user of the Site, or the public.
As needed we may also disclose information we collect on the Site to third-party service providers we retain to provide goods and services to us, including but not limited to reports, analyses, technical support, hosting and maintenance, credit card processing, fraud screening and developing applications. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent such third parties from disclosing your personal information, except for the purpose of providing the services in question. We cannot guarantee that such third parties will not disclose your personal information.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, people who try and bypass security systems, or “hackers,” are often very skilled at breaking through security systems, and therefore we can make no guarantee that your information will be 100% safe. For your own information and protection on the Site and on the Internet in general, please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information, that information can be collected and used by others. Similarly, if you post personal information in public places, you may receive unsolicited e-mail messages.
How Can I Access My Personal Information?
You may contact us to update, correct and request information about the data we collect about you, by sending an email to . We may require proof of your identity before providing any such information. We reserve the right to refuse to provide you with copies of your personal data, but we will give reasons for any such refusal. Appropriate reasons for refusal may include, but are not limited to: administrative burden, expense and security concerns.
You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. After receiving your request, however, all personally identifiable information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media we control will be updated, corrected, changed or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as reasonably practicable.
The Site may contain links to other websites not owned or operated by the Corporation. If you click on such a link, you may be taken away from the Site to an entirely different website. This Policy applies only to the Site and not to any third-party website that may be accessed through links on the Site. It is important to note that such other websites may not follow the same privacy policies as the Corporation and that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage you to be aware when we link to other websites and to read the privacy policies or statements of each and every such website.
We welcome feedback regarding this Policy. If at any time you believe that the Site has not adhered to this Policy, please contact us and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly investigate and, if necessary, correct the problem.
