Privacy Policy

ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY
AMIT respects the privacy of each individual who contacts us. We are grateful for your support and the crucial role you play in helping us continue our valuable work. As part of our commitment to safeguarding your privacy we have adopted the online and offline privacy policy outlined below.

  • Collection and use of information

We collect two kinds of information, site usage data, which is not individually identifiable, and individually identifiable information

  • Site usage data

Our Web server automatically recognizes and collects the domain name of each visitor to our Web site. We collect information about visitors to our site, such as the number of visitors, what pages they access, and the length of their visit. This information is used in aggregate form in order to manage our Web site and improve its content.

  • Individually identifiable information

We collect individually identifiable information about you when you choose to share information about yourself, for example, when you make a donation, request information or sign up for the e-mail newsletter.

Individually identifiable information is used to provide you with information or to deliver the service you have requested. If you provide your postal address, telephone number or e-mail address to AMIT online, you may receive periodic contacts from us.

At certain parts of some of our site, only persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable information will be able to use tools or otherwise participate in the site’s activities and offerings.

We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit some Web pages or fill out forms such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows ’95 or Mac OS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink).

Sharing Information with Others
AMIT will never share or sell any of your personal information received online or offline via mail or other methods. We do not rent or share our membership or other constituent mailing lists in any form. We will only share personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our rights, or protect the safety of our users or others.

Email Communications
We occasionally send out an email newsletter and direct email communications to AMIT site visitors to highlight news, information and opportunities available from AMIT. In addition, all AMIT e-mails have easy-to-follow unsubscribe instructions.

Links to Other Sites
Our site provides links to other Web sites where we think you will find interesting information. Please note that AMIT is not responsible for the information practices of linked sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of each site you visit.

Children Online
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we adhere to the 1998 Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). (For more information, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s COPPA site at www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/kidzprivacy/adults.htm) Whenever we collect or maintain information at our Web site from those we actually know are under 13, we obtain parental consent before any personally identifiable information is collected, used or disclosed. We also follow strict rules when sending email; and we provide parents reasonable access to information collected from their children, and the ability to correct or remove that information.

Security
In order to prevent unauthorized access and protect our users’ personal information, we strive to maintain physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to secure the information we collect online and offline via mail or other methods. For example, online shopping and contributions are processed using a secure server. This secure server software, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer transactional data we collect is protected against unauthorized access with the use of digital certificates.

Privacy Policy Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes here. We encourage you to review our policy from time to time.

Questions or Concerns
Whenever you have any questions or concerns, please contact us through any medium you prefer. Your complete satisfaction in dealing with AMIT is important to us. If you have questions about AMIT’s privacy practices described above, please send an e-mail message to  info@amitchildren.org.

AMIT follows the online Privacy Guidelines and the Guidelines on Ethical Business Practice of the Direct Marketing Association (DMA). For more information on these guidelines, visit the DMA at  the-dma.org.
