Our Commitment to Privacy
Why We Use and Collect Information About You
Our primary goals in collecting personal information are to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience; to send you information upon your request; to facilitate your ability to make charitable donations; and to thank you for your support.
The Information We Collect
In general, we automatically gather certain usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to this Site. This information may include which URL you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your IP address. We use such data only in the aggregate. This collective data helps us to determine how frequently our visitors use parts of the Site and to conduct internal research on our users’ demographics, interests and behavior to better understand and serve you. In addition, we may aggregate data and disclose such information in a non personally identifiable manner to partners or third party vendors. In these situations, we do not disclose any information that could be used to identify you personally.
We may collect personal information that you voluntarily provide, such as your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, or similar information, when you participate in certain activities on the Site, including (but not limited to) when you:
make a contribution to support FSTH
sign up for FSTH’s newsletter
register for an FSTH event
send correspondence to FSTH through the Site, or
participate in any activity that requires your personal information
How We Use Personal Information
Except as provided herein, or unless you consent otherwise, FSTH will only use your personal information for the purpose for which it was submitted. If you submit your postal address, telephone number, or e-mail address, you may receive periodic contacts from us. We may use personal information internally to improve our promotional efforts, to analyze site usage, to improve our content, or to customize our Site’s content, layout, and services.
Unless you specify that a donation be “anonymous” or otherwise request that your name not be listed, we may list the names of donors in brochures, newsletters, benefit programs, or other materials in order to recognize the generosity of those who have given to our cause.
Our Commitment to Data Security
The safety and security of your personal information and credit card transactions is important to us. We use high-grade encryption technology and https security protocol to communicate with your browser software. This method is the industry standard security protocol, which makes it very difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information that you send to us. The company we use to process credit card transactions also uses high-grade encryption and security protocols.
Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
No part of our Site is designed to attract anyone under the age of 13, and FSTH does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent. FSTH urges all parents to monitor and participate in their children’s internet experience and to teach them about protecting their personal information online.
