This policy covers how we treat your personal information collected on our website, or that we otherwise receive, including information related to your past use of site and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.
The Information We Collect
We do not require visitors to supply personally identifiable information when accessing public areas of the site. When you browse the website, you do so anonymously, unless you have submitted an online registration form and selected a password. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged into our website through registration and a password.
We do collect personally identifiable information when you register, access certain restricted site areas, place an order, request other information, or otherwise communicate with us about our offerings. Additionally, we may collect personally identifiable information when you register to make a donation, ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, or you submit your personal information to us for any other reason. We only use such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable industry privacy practices consistent with this policy and applicable laws. Personally identifiable information may be merged with other information we already know, such as whether you are a current Minnesota MILE Donor or Alumni, or whether you or your organization has had past contact with Minnesota MILE activities.
How we use the Information
We collect this information for a variety of reasons, including our effort to inform you of such things as program updates, organizational changes, fundraising opportunities, and to ensure that you have access to information which is likely to be of interest to you. However, we do not sell or rent personally identifiable information to other organizations.
We take measures to protect the security of your personal information and to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honored. We protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Unfortunately, we cannot, and do not, guarantee that data transmission over the Internet is secure, or that a malicious third party will not be successful at misappropriating your personal information from our servers. As a result, you provide us with your personal information at your own risk.
We strive to utilize a secure environment for credit card transactions. Once a transaction has cleared your credit card information is not stored by us.
You may request at any time that the personally identifiable information you provide on a registration page not be used for direct email marketing purposes by Minnesota MILE.
To make this request you may contact Minnesota MILE at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove your email address from our email distributions.
Additionally, at the bottom of each marketing email MILE sends we provide a link to opt-out of the email list. By clicking on this link you will be guided through the automated process that will remove your email address from being included future mailings.
If you need further help or have additional questions, please email us at email@example.com. Please provide your full name, email address and phone number so that we may address your concerns appropriately.
Minnesota MILE's web sites may contain "links" to other non-MILE web sites. It is also possible that non-MILE web sites may link into MILE web sites. We are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by those non-MILE web sites.
As is the case with many sites, when you visit our site or complete a registration form, we will place a "cookie" on your computer, which helps us identify you more quickly when you return. Our use of this technology does not mean that we automatically know anything about you. They are used to identify you as a unique visitor to the site. We will not use "cookies" or other devices to follow your click stream on the Internet generally but will use them to determine which pages or information you find most useful or interesting at our own Web sites.
Most browsers permit you to refuse to accept a "cookie" offered by a Web site. With the exception of password protected areas of the site, you will not be denied access to any other part of www.mnmile.org because of your refusal to accept a "cookie". However, your transactions through this Web site may be delayed due to the time it takes you to re-enter basic information necessary to complete a transaction.
We also may permit companies that show advertisements or that link their services on some of our pages to place and access cookies on your computer. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies and not ours. Such advertisers and other third parties do not have access to our cookies, but we may from time to time share information about your visits to our web site, in combination with non-personally identifiable information about your purchases and interests, and through use of pixel tags (also called clear gifs), in order to utilize targeted marketing strategies in providing you with services and advertising. If you would like more information about the information collection practices of third-party advertising companies, and to know your choices about not having this information used by them, please visit each company's website.
Due to the rapidly evolving nature of technologies Minnesota MILE uses to communicate with you, MILE may occasionally update this privacy statement. Notice of any revisions will be posted to this privacy statement web page.
