Settlement Housing Fund Inc, and its affiliated and subsidiary entities (collectively, “Settlement Housing Fund”, “we”, “us” or “our”) are committed to protecting your privacy. We take seriously the issue of safeguarding your privacy online and we want you to fully understand our privacy practices.
Information we collect and use
Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
In some cases, when you visit the Site, we may also collect information that is non-personally identifiable information or technical information that, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you use, demographic information (e.g., your age, gender, income, education, profession or zip code), the date and time you visited the Site, the pages you accessed, the name of the web site from which you linked to the Site, employment status, county or residence, country of birth, job title, description of job or internship responsibilities, level of education completed, professional licenses obtained, your business interests, whether you have a driver’s license and the state in which it is issued, languages spoken or in which you are fluent, details and description about your job experience and job skills, salary requirements and other anonymous data. We also may ask for additional information which you have the option not to provide. We may use non-personally identifiable information to analyze trends, to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use and for marketing and promotional purposes. Non-personally identifiable information is not linked to any personally identifiable information. In order to improve the Site, we reserve the right to use or disclose non-personal information in any way we see fit.
Electronic Communications Protocols and Cookies
We may use two types of cookies – session cookies and persistent cookies – to enable us to collect aggregate information on the usage patterns of the Site, such as what areas of the Site are visited most often, so that we can tailor the Site to user preferences. Session cookies exist only for as long as your Internet browser remains open. When the session ends, the Internet browser is closed and the cookies go away. Persistent cookies, in contrast, last from visit to visit. Persistent cookies are saved on a visitor’s computer by the Internet browser and do not go away when you exit your Internet browser.
On the Site, Settlement Housing Fund may use embedded electronic images or pixel technologies on selected pages for the purpose of identifying unique user visits to the Site, as opposed to aggregate hits. These embedded pixel technologies, commonly referred to as web beacons, may also be used to assist in delivering cookies on the Site. In addition, web beacons may be used in e-mails to provide information on when an e-mail is opened and acted upon.
If you send us questions, comments, or donations, both online and offline, we may use the personal information you provide to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference or we may discard the information. There may be times when you will have the opportunity to subscribe to an e-mail list or electronic newsletter that will send information about the Site. You have the ability to change your preferences and opt-out of receiving such communications. You may have your name removed from our e-mail communication lists opt-out by clicking the “unsubscribe” link which is included at the bottom of our e-mail communications and hitting send. You may also contact us via the e-mail address that is specified in the e-mail communication. If you are contacting us by e-mail to unsubscribe, please insert “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the e-mail subject line and the body. If you unsubscribe, we will process your request as soon as reasonably practicable, but in no event longer than ten days.
If Settlement Housing Fund sells assets (or the assets of a division or subsidiary) to another entity or if Settlement Housing Fund is acquired by or merged with another entity, you agree that without obtaining your consent Settlement Housing Fund may provide and transfer to such entity information of users of the Site, including your personal and non-personal information, that is related to that part of our business that was sold to or merged with the other entity.
Settlement Housing Fund is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide us on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit what we consider to be highly confidential information over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) protocol. Certain personally identifiable information that you submit to us may, however, not be encrypted during transmission, and with respect to such information, Settlement Housing Fund restricts access to such information to those employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. When you make a donation online through the Site, your credit card information is protected through the use of encryption, such as the SSL protocol. Encryption technology makes it difficult for your credit card information to be intercepted or stolen while being transmitted. However, it is not possible to guarantee the security or integrity of information disclosed online because no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure. We use a third party service provider or providers to process credit card transactions. Such service provider(s) may share your personal information and credit card number with a ticket agent, a credit card processing company in order to complete your order.
Like millions of other website owners, we use Google Analytics software that collects data about visitors to our Site. Google Analytics records information including what website you were directed to Settlement Housing Fund from, how long you remain on our website, which browser you are using, and other demographic information.
Information from Google Analytics allows us to better understand the kind of visitors who come to our Site and the content they are reading or engaging with. No personally identifying information is included in this reporting, and all data is used for internal purposes only. All of our activities fall within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
