Privacy and Information Security Policy
Effective Date: December 15, 2008
Welcome. This Privacy and Information Security Policy (“Policy”) covers information collected through www.thrivewa.org (“Site”) and information relating to the subject matter of the Site.
Who We Are
We are Thrive Washington (“we” or “us“), a Washington nonprofit corporation formed by a public-private partnership working to help ensure that all Washington children succeed in school and life, and if you have questions or concerns you may e-mail us at email@example.com.
Provided Information That We Collect
We collect your personal information that you provide to us, such as your name and email address when you are requesting to be added to our mailing list, when you request our newsletter, or when you send us an email or letter. You represent and warrant that you are providing only your own personal information and not anyone else’s personal information.
Information That We Collect Automatically
We routinely learn certain information about visitors to the Site such as:
- the domain name and host from which you access the Internet and the Internet address of the Web site from which you direct-linked to the Site;
- the date and time you access the Site and pages you visit;
- your computer’s IP address and information about its operating system, and the Web browser you use; and
- information to combat fraud or misuse.
Our Site is not directed to children and we will not knowingly allow anyone under the age of 13 to use the Site to provide us with any personally-identifying information. Children always should get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses and phone numbers) over the Internet. If you are under 13, please do not provide any information about yourself to this Site.
Our Uses of Information
What We Will Not Do
We will not sell or rent your personal information to a non-affiliated third party for their for-profit marketing purposes, absent your specific consent to do that.
What We May Do
We may use your personal information to respond to communications from you and to communicate with you about materials you may submit to us.
We also may send you our newsletter, and contact you to inform you of important changes or additions to our Site or the services offered over our Site, or to send you administrative notices or any communications relevant to your use of our Site. We reserve the right to share your information with non-affiliated third-party charitable or non-profit organizations for their promotional purposes. If you do not want to receive any of the communications mentioned in this paragraph, please see “Opting Out” below.
We reserve the right to release personally identifying information about visitors to our Site when we believe that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to comply with law (including responding to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process), or to protect the safety or property of visitors to our site, the public, or Thrive Washington, our affiliates or our personnel. We also reserve the right to disclose personally identifying information about visitors to our Site to third-party contractors we engage to assist us with the operation of our Site or other aspects of our business when our contractors need access to such information to perform the services we request.
We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information for purposes such as measuring the number of visitors to sections of our Site, making our Site more useful to visitors, and other purposes.
You will have the opportunity to review, update, or delete the information you have provided us at any time (except, of course, any information that we do not store or that is not maintained in a retrievable form). Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may keep a record of all information that is changed (including deletions) and disclose it for any lawful purpose, and in certain circumstances we may decline to change information (e.g., if we are required to keep track of certain kinds of transactions, you may not change relevant information).
Security and Related Notices
- Your e-mails to us are not necessarily secure against interception so do not include sensitive information in them—we generally will not ask for passwords or the like in an email and you should assume that if you get such a request, it might be fraudulent.
- We believe that the security we have in place is appropriate to the subject matter of our Site, but WE DO NOT GUARANTEE SECURITY. Neither people nor security systems are foolproof, including encryption, and people can commit intentional crimes, make mistakes or fail to follow policies YOU ASSUME THE RISK OF ANY INADEQUACY OR FAILURE OF SECURITY AND AGREE TO DO WHAT YOU REASONABLY CAN TO PROMOTE SECURITY (such as by guarding your password if one is used). If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty, you agree that the standard used to measure our compliance with that duty will be one of intentional misconduct.
- You agree not to enter information on the Site if you desire a higher level of security.
- Your Consent to Email Notice: If we are required to disclose or provide notice of invasion of certain security systems, we will do so when required by posting notice on our Site or, in our discretion, by giving it to any e-mail address provided by you.
We may amend this Policy at any time and will post any revised policy and effective date on the Site.
