To Opt-out send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please reference "Opt-Out" in your subject line and state in the body of the e-mail that you wish to have your name removed from the distribution lists.
What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail 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 this information to acknowledge participation and promote other programs we offer to interested parties. We will use this information for internal purposes only and will never sell our lists to other organizations, sponsors or vendors. In some instances we may share your personal information with our sponsors for the sole purpose of promoting Share Our Strength events.
Internet Protocol Address
We collect Internet Protocol ("IP") address from all visitors to the Website. 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 Website, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the Website, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are never linked to personally identifiable information.
Use of "Cookies"
All information provided to Share Our Strength is transmitted using Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") 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 Website that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Share Our Strength. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warranty the security of any such personal information.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our Website, we ask them for the friend's name and e-mail address. Share Our Strength will automatically send the friend a one-time e-mail inviting them to visit the Website. Share Our Strength stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail.
Our Website contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website over which Share Our Strength has no control and will bear no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such websites as their policies may be different than ours.
We may disclose personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Share Our Strength.
