Hospice Foundation takes your privacy very seriously. As such, we prohibit the disclosure of any information provided by you, a visitor to Hospice Foundation’s website, without prior informed and written consent.
As a website visitor, you browse anonymously, unless you volunteer identifiable information. Our web hosting server does not collect your email address. Information, such as originating domain, time of visit, connection speed, and pages accessed, is collected but in aggregate form across all users. This information does not identify you and Hospice Foundation makes no attempt to correlate such information to any individual user. This aggregated information is used only to improve the performance and responsiveness of our website for our visitors.
In the course of doing business, we do collect the email addresses of those who communicate with us directly via email (as opposed to general website visitors). All information volunteered by the visitor, such as survey information and/or site registrations, may also be retained but it is never shared with anyone or any other organization outside of Hospice Foundation.
Hospice Foundation takes reasonable measures to ensure the security of individually identifiable information stored on our website through the use of standard Internet security measures like firewalls and encryption. Only necessary employees have access to secure individually identifiable information and those employees must use a password to access that information.
- Does not require you to register when visiting its website, though you may do so to enhance your visitor experience.
- Will not send you unsolicited correspondence.
- If you have provided us with your email address, the information we send you is not considered unsolicited. You will have the option to opt-out at any time from receiving email communications.
- At your request, and at any time, we will remove you from our lists, assuming you give us the correct email address. We will do this by automatic means or by human intervention if needed.
- Will not sell, trade or give away the names, email addresses, or contact information of our donors or anyone else with whom we correspond without their permission.
- Shall not permit any staff member or a volunteer to knowingly disclose to a third party any personally identifiable information provided by a donor.
- From time to time, may ask you for permission to use your name and contact information for a specific purpose. We will only act on that with your permission.
- In general, will do our best to make all our correspondence reflect the permission and consent you have given us.
If you have any advice or questions regarding this policy, please feel free to send us your comments and questions to email@example.com .
From time to time, Hospice Foundation may send a “cookie” to a visitor’s computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to an Internet browser from a Web server and stored on the visitor’s computer hard drive that can help enhance a visitor’s experience with the site. For example, if a visitor requests publications from Hospice Foundation and provides name, address, etc., in a form, cookies will remember this information so that when additional publications are ordered, it is not necessary to reenter the information. A cookie can’t read data off of a computer’s hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage a system.
Hospice Foundation also utilizes cookies to identify which areas of the Foundation website each of our visitors explores so that we gain information about what is most useful. The visitor to the Foundation’s website can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of the Internet browser to refuse all cookies, or allow the browser to show when a cookie is being sent. If the visitor chooses not to accept those cookies, the experience at our site and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.
