The VSK Foundation respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”). The Privacy Policy is designed to provide you with information about how we collect, store and use non-personally identifiable and personally identifiable information obtained through our website. By visiting our website, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy. The VSK Foundation reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting such change here. Your continued use of the website after such change is made constitutes acceptance of and agreement to be bound by the terms of the Privacy Policy as modified.

This Privacy Policy applies to all our websites, including but not limited to www.vskfoundation.org (“the VSK Foundation Websites”). The VSK Foundation is not responsible for the privacy policy or content of any third-party website linked to our website. Please check with these third-party organizations or companies for their specific privacy policies.

What Information Do We Collect?
Through our website, we offer convenient online access to our services and communicate with you about important information, opportunities and events. The VSK Foundation collects and maintains certain personal information about you when you send us an e-mail or complete any of our forms, such as when you make a donation. Such information may include your name, mailing address, and e-mail address; it may also include a phone number, the e-mail addresses of those to whom you forward VSK Foundation electronic content, and any other information collected in the forms. You may be asked to provide credit card information to contribute to the VSK Foundation, purchase certain information or materials from the VSK Foundation, or subscribe to any VSK Foundation publications. The VSK Foundation Websites also collect certain other information that cannot identify you personally when you visit our website. This information includes your IP address and your domain name.

How Do We Use The Information Collected?
The VSK Foundation respects your privacy and has instituted policies intended to ensure that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible manner.
The VSK Foundation may disclose your personal information when: (i) the person submitting the information authorizes us to do so; (ii) sharing the information is a necessary operation of the website (i.e. to process credit card information); or (iii) we are required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served at VSK Foundation or the website, (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the VSK Foundation, the website or the visitors to the website, and/or (c) prevent or mitigate harm or potential harm or damage of any type to visitors to the website or the public.

Occasionally, the VSK Foundation may make your information, excluding credit card information, available to VSK Foundation’s affiliate organizations or to sponsors or licensees that provide special programs or services we think you might find interesting or beneficial. If your volunteered personal information will be used in any manner other than as stated above, such use shall be specifically posted. Although we may make reasonable inquiries to determine that these select organizations maintain privacy policies similar to the VSK Foundation’s, we are not responsible for the enforcement of such policies. If you wish to update or remove your information, or if you do not wish your information to be shared with these third parties, please e-mail us at info@vskfoundation.org.

The VSK Foundation may also use your information to deliver information to you about our company and promotional material from some of our business partners, as well as for trend analysis, pattern detection, and website administration. Non-personal demographic and profile data is used to tailor your experience at our website, showing you content we think you might be interested in. Occasionally, the VSK Foundation may contact visitors who have provided their personally identifiable information through the website to, among other things, donate, sign up for advocacy alerts, or take advocacy actions. The VSK Foundation may also contact visitors to conduct surveys seeking feedback about their experience on the website. These surveys are used for quality assurance purposes to improve our level of customer service. The data collected may also be shared with third parties on an aggregated basis.

The VSK Foundation also logs non-personally identifiable information, such as IP addresses and domain names, and aggregates them for system administration and to monitor the use of our site. We use the aggregated information to measure the number of visits to our site, the average time spent on our site, the number of pages viewed, and various other site statistics. This monitoring helps us to provide a more useful and engaging online experience to visitors to the VSK Foundation Websites, and helps us to improve the quality of our content.

Does VSK Foundation Use Cookies?
When you access our website, we might store some information on your computer in the form of a “cookie” (i.e. a small piece of text that stores information on your browser in your computer’s hard drive) or similar file. We do this to collect information about your activities on the website, make it possible for you to keep track of items you wish to process on our website, deliver to you content that is specific to your interests, and/or to prevent you from re-entering all your data at each connection. We may also use conversion tracking cookies in order to analyze trends, gather broad demographic information, and monitor site traffic patterns that can help us further develop and improve the design and functionality of our site. The cookies shall only be used to obtain non-personal information to improve your online experience. No other information is stored in these cookies. You can always set your browser to warn of cookies being placed, and then choose which cookies you want to accept.

How Secure Is VSK Foundation’s Website?
Our website has industry standard high encryption security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. The VSK Foundation makes every effort to protect your online order information by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts your order information to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone other than the VSK Foundation. We do not store your credit card information.
