Stand With Servicewomen Privacy Statement
Effective as of: September 13, 2012
Stand With Servicewomen is committed to protecting the personal information that you provide and entrust to us when using this website. This online privacy statement (the “Privacy Statement”) describes how we treat all user data collected during your visit to the Stand With Servicewomen Site (the “Site”), both technical data that is automatically collected and voluntarily submitted data.
Stand With Servicewomen may occasionally update this Privacy Statement. We will post any changes on this web page, so be sure to check back periodically. If we do make material changes, we will post a notice on our home page that the Privacy Statement has been modified and provide a link to the revised Privacy Statement. Any information that you submit after a change has been posted will be subject to the new provisions.
User Data We Collect
We collect two types of user data: (1) technical data that is automatically collected from all visitors to the Site (“Automatically Collected Data”); and (2) data that you voluntarily submit to us (described below under “Voluntarily Submitted Data”).
Automatically Collected Data. We automatically collect Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses and domain names of the originating visitor’s computer on our server and may know some information you have previously provided through cookies. (See the section on Cookies below for more information.) We also track the number and frequency of hits per page. We do not associate any individual IP address with any other personally identifying information.
In addition, if you come to the Site from a website link, we may also identify the source of that link, so that we can evaluate what content is persuading web users to become involved in Stand With Servicewomen’s work.
Voluntarily Submitted Data. We may collect Voluntarily Submitted Data, including personal data, that you voluntarily provide, such as your name or postal address, e-mail address, and similar information, when you:
- sign up to join Stand With Servicewomen or to receive information from us;
- participate in one of our online petitions;
- submit feedback to Stand With Servicewomen; and
- participate in any activity that requires your Voluntarily Submitted Data.
Some of our website analysis and functionality, such as videos, are provided through third-party functionality and require the use of Short-term Cookies. These Short-term Cookies are set to expire within 30 minutes of their being placed on your hard drive.
We do not use Long-term Cookies but please see the section on “Third Parties—Third Party Functionality.”
How We Use The Data We Collect
In addition to the uses described above, we use Automatically Collected Data to identify the source of user traffic (for example, umich.edu, or aol.com), but we do not tie this information to individual users in our database. We use data on which sections of the Site are most visited, so that we can evaluate the popularity of our different web pages and continue to improve the Site.
We use your Voluntarily Submitted Data for various purposes:
- To fulfill the request for which you specifically provided the data, including to publicly associate you with Stand With Servicewomen if you choose to be associated or to contact you for specific activism opportunities in your area;
- To send you information relevant to Stand With Servicewomen, including updates and requests for participation in our activities, if you choose to receive that information;
- To indicate you as the author of any comment you post, when you opt to identify yourself as the author;
- To offer you other ways to support Stand With Servicewomen; and
- To respond to an inquiry or feedback you made to Stand With Servicewomen.
The Site is hosted by servers in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, the Voluntarily Submitted Data you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By submitting your Voluntarily Submitted Data, you consent to its transfer and storage in the United States and its use in accordance with the purposes for which it was originally collected.
Third Party Sharing
We share your Voluntarily Submitted Data and Automatically Collected Data with third-party service providers who contact you on our behalf or facilitate some other aspect of Stand With Servicewomen activities or services, including those third-party service providers who collect, process, store and transmit information we collect on this website and those third-party service providers we use to assist us in our communications efforts. These service providers have access to your Voluntarily Submitted Data and Automatically Collected Data solely for the purpose of providing these services to us on our behalf, and they are prohibited from sharing your Voluntarily Submitted Data with third parties other than subcontractors assisting them in their providing these services to us.
We may disclose and use Voluntarily Submitted Data regardless of where you reside in special circumstances when it is necessary to enforce our User Agreement or this Privacy Statement, or when we, under what we hope to be extraordinary and infrequent circumstances, in good faith, truly believe that the law requires us to disclose your Voluntarily Submitted Data to third parties.
Except as described in this Privacy Statement, we will not share your Voluntarily Submitted Data with any third party unless we first notify you and offer you an appropriate choice to consent to such further use, for example, through an opt-out or opt-in request.
We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13.
The Voluntarily Submitted Data we collect about you is stored on a secure, password protected server and only authorized personnel have access to your information. We use industry-standard encryption technologies with respect to the receipt and transfer of Voluntarily Submitted Data you submit to us on the Site and only authorized personnel have access to your information. Because standard email is unencrypted, encryption is not used in any e-mail functionality, including Action e-list. Nevertheless, despite our best efforts, no transmission over the Internet and no data storage method can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
