What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:

Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers. We use contact information from the registration forms to send the user requested information about our organization. We never sell, share or trade any of our user information with other companies or organizations.

Users will provide information about themselves or their organization when registering for fundraising, donations or opt-in lists. This information is not used for any other purpose than to fulfill your request and is not shared with outside parties. However, donors and visitors should be aware that information collected online or offline may be subject to examination if such information is a public record. This policy applies to all information received by the organization, both online and offline.

Internet Protocol Address: We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users’ movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Donor Privacy Policy

We will not sell, share or trade our donors’ names or personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations.

This policy applies to all information received by Prevent Child Abuse America and Healthy Families America, both online and offline, on any platform (including the preventchildabuse.org and healthyfamiliesamerica.org domains) as well as any other communication, whether electronic, written, or oral.

To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider (such as CrowdRise or Text2Give), our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.

Use of “Cookies”:

Our Site may use cookies to enhance your experience while using our Site. Cookies are pieces of information that some Web sites transfer to the computer that is browsing that Web site and are used for record-keeping purposes at many Web sites. Use of cookies makes Web-surfing easier by performing certain functions such as saving your passwords, your personal preferences regarding your use of the particular Web site and to make sure you don’t see the same ad repeatedly. Many consider the use of cookies to be an industry standard.

Your browser is probably set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our Site will not function properly when you view them.

Security:

All information provided to Prevent Child Abuse America is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Prevent Child Abuse America. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

Tell-A-Friend:

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our Site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. Prevent Child Abuse America will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the Site. Prevent Child Abuse America stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
