Privacy Policy

Effective:  July 22, 2014

Privacy Notice Table Of Contents:

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.   Change Happens! is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its employees, members, clients, and other stakeholders.  We value the trust of those we serve, deal with, and of the public, and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we are accountable in how we treat the information that you chose to share with us.

 

In conducting our various projects and activities, we frequently gather and use personal information.  Anyone from whom we collect such information should expect that it will be carefully protected and that any use of this information is subject to consent.

 

The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the Change Happens! website. On some pages, you can order products, make requests, and register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:

Name
Address
Email address
Phone number
Credit/Debit Card Information, etc.

 

Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify, or contact a specific individual.  Business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories, are not considered personal information.  Change Happens! will not share the information with any party without the express written consent of the donor.

 

The Way We Use Information:

 

The information collected is used to keep donors apprised of current events in the form such as newsletters.  The information may also be used to invite donors to special events.  Funding requests may also be mailed to donors whose information has been compiled in the database.  We collect, use and disclose personal information only for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in light of the circumstances.  We routinely offer individuals we deal with the opportunity to opt not to have their information shared for purposes beyond those for which it was explicitly collected.

 

We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates on our services. Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use password protocols and encryption software to protect personal and other information we receive when a product or services is requested and/or paid online.  Our software is routinely updated to maximize protection of such information.

 

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy:

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

 

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information

You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting abates@changehappenstx.org . We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
