We respect your privacy. VOICE does not automatically collect personal information through this web site. We do not use software or hardware techniques nor enable cookies to collect personal information about you without your knowledge. During the process of delivering our content and information to you, we do not automatically collect any personally identifiable information about you such as name, address, phone number, or e-mail address. However, we do obtain some types of non-personally identifiable information such as the Internet Service Provider you use to connect to the Internet, your browser type, or the type of computer operating system you use (Macintosh or Windows, for example). The information collected by us is used for the purpose of analyzing our traffic.
We log IP addresses. The location of a site visitor’s computer or network on the Internet is logged but only for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. In other words, our site includes software that lets us track how many people are coming to our site, and from which search engines or web pages. This can let us know how they found information about our site. However, we do not automatically collect your name or other personal information. We also use IP addresses in aggregated form to track which pages people visit in order to assess which content people read most frequently, and to improve the quality of the site. We do not use such data to develop profiles of individual visitors to our web site. There is no personal information collected in our log files. We evaluate site usage by analyzing user information in the aggregate, but this analysis does not identify any individual user.
What happens when you contact us: We maintain some records of individuals who contact us for information via our website in order to contact you later or provide further information in the future. For example, if you send us an email, we may file your note to us, so that we can respond to you. However, we do not provide this information to anyone else unless you give us your permission or unless disclosure is required by law.
What happens when you make a contribution: If you choose to become a supporter of VOICE, or otherwise make a charitable contribution, we use the information collected from you to process payments. Personal information may be shared with third party service providers (e.g., merchant banks) during this process. We need to share this information in order to process credit card purchases. VOICE collects information about all of our donors so that we can thank you appropriately and track your donations for tax purposes. If you become a supporter of VOICE, your contact information will be added to our list of supporters. Supporters and donors, whether contributions are made online or through any other means, may opt out of such supporter list by contacting VOICE at [email protected].
Children’s online privacy protection: We do not collect any information about users’ ages, and do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from individual users under the age of 18 without parental or guardian permission. No form should be filled out by any child without first getting permission by their parent or legal guardian. We encourage parents to be with their children on the Internet and to supervise their children when submitting any form of information over the Internet.
