Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. It is the Norwin School District Community Foundation’s («NSDCF») policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect on www.nsdcf.org.
As with most websites, NSDCF collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. NSDCF’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how NSDCF’s visitors use its website. From time to time, NSDCF may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
NSDCF also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to help diagnose problems with our servers, administer www.nsdcf.org, and as part of our efforts to statistical efforts to better monitor and understand user behavior and website traffic.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
In each case, NSDCF collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with NSDCF. NSDCF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
NSDCF may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, NSDCF may monitor web traffic, visitor behavior, and other similiar data. NSDCF may display this information publicly or provide it to others in an effort to improve the NSDCF website. However, NSDCF does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
NSDCF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on NSDCF’s behalf or to provide services available at NSDCF’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using NSDCF’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. NSDCF will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, NSDCF discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when NSDCF believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of NSDCF, third parties or the public at large. If you have supplied your email address to NSDCF and opted-in to our newsletter, NSDCF may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with NSDCF and our work. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it after removing personally-identifying information in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. NSDCF takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
