Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy matters greatly to us. To protect your privacy, this notice explains our information privacy practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
When you request information online, make a donation, register, complete an application or otherwise contact us offline, we might need your specific information in order to process your registration, request or application and promptly respond to your needs.
We might ask you for contact information (such as your name, e-mail and address) and demographic information (such as your zip code or age). We might also collect demographic and profile data at our site and in our databases based on group-oriented information. The primary reason we use identification information is to complete the transaction that you initiate. However, we also use this data to improve your experience on our website and interacting with us offline as well.
Links to Other Sites
This website links to other sites. ThanksUSA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those websites. We will not pass your information along to the linked site; however, we cannot protect the information you provide to that site.
Monitoring of Information
We monitor customer traffic patterns and site-usage to help us improve the design and layout of the ThanksUSA Web site. We might also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website or our programs.
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our site, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve this site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Protecting Personal Information
When you make a donation using PayPal, we use a secure server. This secure-server software, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), encrypts all information you input before it is sent to PayPal. Furthermore, all of the customer transactional data we collect is protected against unauthorized access with the use of digital certificates. VeriSign, one of the most established signers of digital certificates, issues digital certificates for the ThanksUSA site.
Use of "Cookies"
Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
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 -- http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/kidzprivacy/adults.htm.
ThanksUSA does not send unsolicited commercial e-mail to individuals without having consent or permission. If ThanksUSA does send an e-mail, then all recipients will receive a clear, easy and effective method to unsubscribe to any and all online communications.
