Measuring our visitors
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
We use Google Analytics to track and analyze user behavior on our Site. Google Analytics collects information about your use of our Site, the pages you visit, and the actions you take. This information is used to analyze user behavior, improve our Site and services, and measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
To learn more about how Google collects and processes data, please visit https://policies.google.com/privacy.
You can opt-out of Google Analytics by using the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
How we protect your information
We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site.
Sensitive and private data exchange between the Site and its users happens over a SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures. Our Site is also in compliance with PCI vulnerability standards in order to create as secure of an environment as possible for users.
While we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.
Sharing your personal information
We do not sell, trade, or rent user's or donor's personal identification information to others.
We will not share or sell donor's information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.
Users and donors may additionally opt-out of any electronic marketing communications and/or mail from us at any time by using the "Unsubscribe" links in any of those correspondence, contacting us at 603-369-3858, or by emailing our support team.
We may share generic, aggregated, and anonymized demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners and trusted affiliates for the purposes outlined above. We may use third party service providers to help us operate our business and the Site or administer activities on our behalf, such as sending out newsletters or surveys. We may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes provided that you have given us your permission.
Third party websites
Users may find other content on our Site that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our Site. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our Site, is subject to that website's own terms and policies.
Facebook, Twitter and other social networks
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.
To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function, their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.
Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change).
