What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Website visitors can submit forms on the site for general contact, for Foundation gratitude/story submissions, for hardship applications, and for donations. We collect the data shown in the respective form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. This data is needed in order to process the various interaction points for the Foundation, and is submitted voluntarily by website visitors.
Depending on visitor interactions with the site and forms mentioned above, cookies may be used to help make the site functional for visitors and to facilitate form submissions. The techniques we employ do not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address or telephone number in these cookies.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
This site tracks overall traffic and usage through website analytics. This analytics tracking does not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address or telephone number.
Who we share your data with
Third Party Distribution of Data
It is not our practice or policy to share your information with an outside organization or company. Only in those instances where we have authorization from you to release information to an agent acting on your behalf will we do so. Submissions may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Distribution of Data Within the Foundation
In general, only Foundation governance committee members and website administrators can view any submitted information. The information that we collect that is both general and specific will be shared within our organization to perform the activities you’ve asked us to do. In addition, individual data will be aggregated and analyzed in order to understand usage trends and requirements so that we can continue to provide a service that is reliable, responsive, and efficient.
How long we retain your data
If you submit a form on this site (e.g. hardship application, donation, etc.), the form submission and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize any follow-up activity for each submission, and track the overall Foundation activity over time.
