Privacy, Content and Copyright Policies
Ipas has created this privacy statement to demonstrate our commitment to protecting personal information we receive from you when you visit our Web site. Please be aware that this statement applies only to information we collect online from visitors to our Web site. This policy does not apply to information we collect from sources other than the website. If you have questions about Ipas or this privacy statement, contact us.
The photographs used herein are for illustrative purposes only; they do not imply any particular attitudes, behaviors, or actions on the part of any person who appears in the photographs.
The information we receive and collect differs depending upon what you do when you visit our website.
If you indicate that you would like to be contacted, we will use the information provided to contact you as requested.
Please be aware that Ipas will disclose information, including personally identifying information, in the event it is required to do so by law.
If you visit our Web site and simply browse, without sending an email, signing up for a newsletter or submitting an online donation:
Our web host collects and stores general information such as the name and domain of the host from which you access the internet (e.g. aol.com); the date and time you access our site; and the portions of our site you visited. The information collected by our web host, which does not include any information from which Ipas could identify an individual or the individual’s computer, is available to Ipas through a Web site that only Ipas can access. Ipas uses this information to measure the number of visitors to our site and to help us make the site more useful. The web host for Ipas does not make this information available to anyone but Ipas. Other than persons who provide web hosting or design services to us, we do not share this information with or sell this information to any third party.
If you visit our Web site and choose to send us an email (other than through the secure online donation process discussed below):
We will attempt to use the information you send us, including whatever personal information about you is included in your message, for the purpose of making an appropriate response to your e-mail. If you request particular publications, we will use the information as necessary to comply with your request. If you indicate that you would like to be contacted, we will use the information supplied to contact you.
If you request to receive periodic information from Ipas concerning programs and activities, or contact Ipas to request support through the mail or online, we will place your name and postal and/or email address onto the list we maintain of persons who request to receive such information. Ipas adheres to a strict opt-in policy regarding user information. We only place your information on a list if you request, and we will immediately take your information off of any list if you request.
With the exception of web hosts or designers, we do not share information about visitors to our Web site with any third party. We do not partner or have special relationships with any ad server companies.
If you choose to make an online donation to Ipas through the Web site:
After you make your online donation through Verisign, Verisign then provides information about you and your donation to us. However, Verisign does not give us any information about your credit card. Rather, the only information we receive from Verisign is your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and the amount of your donation. We use this information to send you an acknowledgement of your gift, and to keep records regarding our donors for administrative and tax purposes. We also publish in various print publications, but not online, lists of Ipas’s donors. We will include the names of online donors on this list unless you indicate that you prefer to remain anonymous.
If you indicate that your company has a matching gift program and provide the required form, we will use that information to process the matching gift from your company, to update our donor list, to send an acknowledgement to the company, and to include the company’s name on published lists of Ipas’s donors (unless we are notified that the company would prefer to remain anonymous). We will not initiate any further contact with the company unless you or the company requests that we do so.
If you choose to signup for Ipas Newsletters or indicate that you would like to more information about our programs:
If you indicate that you would like to receive updates about our programs, we will place your name and postal and/or email address onto the list we maintain of persons who are to receive such information. Ipas adheres to a strict opt-in policy regarding user information. We only place this information on a list if you request, and we will immediately take your name and other information off of any list if you request.
