THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Personal Information You Provide And How It Is Used: You may freely visit our Website anonymously and without being required to provide us with any personal information. However, a few requests and features do require that you provide us with some personally identifying information as more particularly described below. Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact you. Please do not send confidential information to us directly via the contact email addresses listed on this Website.
Contact Us: The Website provides a “contact us” web form for questions visitors may have about the work we do and our Website. If you contact us via this web form, we will collect your name and email address, and any other personal information that you provide to us. We will use the information you provide to contact you and to respond to any requests and/or questions.
Donate: We accept donations via both credit card and PayPal. If you make a donation through the Website via the “donate” button, you will be asked to provide certain personally identifying information, such as your name and home address, as well as your credit card billing information/PayPal information, in order to process the donation. The payment information that you provide at the time of donation is used only to process your donation and will not be stored or used for any other purpose. However, if you opt to make a recurring donation, your payment information will be stored and used for the purpose of processing your recurring donation. Please note Ed Equity Lab has engaged the services of a third party payment service provider(s) to process all donation/payment transactions, and such third party payment service provider(s) will have access to the information you provide to them when making a donation.
Additionally, if you opt to contact us via email in order to make a donation via wire transfer, or a gift of stock or services, we may collect certain personally identifying information to process your donation/gift.
Non-Personal Information We Collect by Automated Means And How We Use It: We also collect some limited, non-personal information (data in a form that does not support direct association with any specific person or individual) by automated means when you visit the Website. This information is collected through the use of the third-party tracking services Google Analytics. The information collected may include usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users to the Website, pages visited, web browsing histories and similar data. When gathered, this this data is used in the aggregate, and not in a manner that is intended to identify you personally. This type of aggregate information may be shared with third parties at any time, including marketers. Other than the preceding data collection practices, we do not collect other non-personal information (data in a form that does not support direct association with any specific person or individual) when you visit the Website.
RESPONSE TO “DO-NOT-TRACK” SIGNALS
Every time your computer sends or receives information over the Web, the request begins with some short pieces of information called “headers.” These headers include information like what browser you are using, what language your computer is set to, and other details. The Do Not Track technology provides individual users with the ability to include a simple, machine-readable header indicating that they don’t want to be tracked, and sends a signal to websites’ visited requesting that the website disable either its tracking or cross-site user tracking of an individual user. Currently, various browsers – including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari – offer a “do not track” option. Presently, there is no consensus on how Do Not Track should be interpreted, and no common or accepted industry standard for implementing. Consequently, we do not respond to Web browser “do not track” signals.
HOW WE MAY SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
