Therefore, please review the following statement which explains what data we collect, how we use the personal information you provide, and how we keep that information secure. “Personal information” refers to data that is unique to you such as name, birth date, address, email address, IP address, telephone number(s). If you encounter a screen or page that requests information you do not want to share with us, do not enter the information and do not proceed with that screen or page.

Information Collected and Used

For purposes of this website, we may use your email or phone/text number that you provide in order to respond to your inquiry or to send you information about a service or resource that you expressed interest in. We will continue to send you information unless you request us to stop or opt out.

You may also decide to use your email or text number to ask us questions and provide comments about our website or services. You are encouraged to provide this feedback. We do share these messages with individuals in the organization who can appropriately respond; we may preserve the content of your message along with our response. At times, we may use a third-party vendor to determine if you open and use any information that we share via email, as well as to solicit your feedback through online surveys. Responding to these surveys is optional. It is important to use good judgment when sending information to us via email or text. These messages may pass through private and public networks with varying levels of security. Some networks may have taken steps to secure these transmissions while others have not which could affect the privacy and integrity of the information you send.

Neither cookies nor tags can extract any personal information about you, nor can they read any data that resides on your personal computer or device. The data collected from these sources are used to recognize repeat users and track usage patterns. Specifically, we use “cookies,” which are small pieces of information sent by a web server and stored by a member’s web browser.
