ELC may collect certain information from you through the Site, including personal information (i.e., individual information that may be used to personally identify or contact you). Collection is done both actively (information you voluntarily submit to us) and passively (information automatically gathered from your computer within our site analytic capabilities).
At several places on our Site, we collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us which may contain personally identifiable information. For example, if you make a donation, request information, fill out a form through the site, we may collect your name, phone and email.
Our website content platform automatically collects certain information from your computer (such as your Internet address and browser type) using two methods: (1) “cookies” and (2) log files.
Log Files. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather very broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
ELC is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. Personal information that you provide (such as a personal email address) may be used by ELC in the following ways:
We will not sell, share, or rent any personal information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement without first obtaining your authorization. We may provide aggregate information (i.e., information we collect that does not allow you to be personally identified or contacted) to third parties, such as our marketing firm, without your authorization, such as information about your access and use of the site.
We may disclose personal information you provide to independent contractors, volunteers, agencies, service providers and consultants who are engaged by or working with ELC and who need access to such information to carry out their programs or services.
We use reasonable precautions to protect user information online. For example, our employee’s computers are password protected, and we provide regular education to our employees regarding our security and privacy practices.
