What information we collect:
You are not required to share personally identifiable information in order to use LIAAC's website. Personally identifiable information is information that can be linked to a specific individual, such as a name, address, phone number or email address. You can view most portions of our site without telling us who you are and without revealing any personally identifiable information. LIAAC uses numeric Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to analyze trends, manage our website, track visitor movement and click-through behavior and gather broad demographic information about our audience that is not personally identifiable. This information helps us better understand site usage patterns as well as the types of content and information that may help improve your experience on our site.
We gather personally identifiable information when you make a donation to LIAAC online, and when you request additional information from us to be delivered electronically or via mail. We never collect personally identifiable information without permission and we never collect information beyond that which is absolutely necessary to take the requested action.
We recognize that parents/guardians and caregivers are concerned about the privacy of their family and especially that of their children online. Though not geared towards children, LIAAC's website meets the guidelines of the http://www.TRUSTe.com children's program as well as the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We define children as those who are under the age of thirteen. We will not collect online contact or personal information about children without their prior parental consent or parental notification, which will include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. Without prior consent, online information will only be used to respond directly to the child's request and will not be used for other purposes. This information will not be distributed to third parties, be publicly posted or otherwise distributed without prior parental consent. Nothing will be done to entice, by the prospect of a special game, prize or activity to divulge more information than is needed to participate in the activity.
How we use personally identifiable information:
We use the personally identifiable information you give us to process your requests for information and to process donations you make via credit card on our site. LIAAC, its Internet Service Providers (ISP) and web host employ a variety of security measures designed to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. All databases containing personal information are securely stored on a separate system that is not connected to the Internet.
When you make an online donation to LIAAC, we will acknowledge receipt of your donation for tax purposes via mail and, unless you ask us not to, include you on LIAAC's mailing list. If you do not wish to be added to our mailing list, please let us know and we will honor your request.
When you send a donation in honor or in memory of someone and request that an acknowledgment be sent to another individual/family, we will use the name and address of that individual/family for acknowledgment purposes only.
Email you send to LIAAC:
If you choose to correspond with LIAAC through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone. Any email we receive is read only by those individuals who are essential to answering the question(s) presented. You should never send personal health, financial or other sensitive information via email.
Disclosure to third parties:
Personally identifiable data can only be accessed by authorized LIAAC personnel. We preserve the confidentiality, security and integrity of that information. We do not share, sell, transfer or disclose personal information to third parties. Users, however, are subject to applicable laws regarding proper decorum and use of the website. Improper message board behavior or other violations, as well as criminal acts directed against others via our website or reported to LIAAC staff, may be reported to law enforcement personnel.
As a convenience to our visitors, we may provide links to third-party websites. It is our hope that these sites provide users with current, relevant information in a responsible manner. However, the linked sites are not under our control, and we make no representation and are not responsible for the quality, suitability, functionality or legality of any sites to which we may provide links.
