We do not track individuals' use of our website. No information that a user chooses to give us is correlated with their activity on our website.
Like most standard website servers, we use log files. These include total page views, total hits, total files sent, total files cached, other response codes, total KB request, total KB transferred, total KB saved by cache, total unique URLs, total unique sites, total user sessions and total log file entries read/processed. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. No information collected in our log files is linked to personally identifiable information.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line. When our donation form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the industry standard, SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked or open.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is maintained in a restricted environment in our offices. Only employees who need information to perform a specific duty are granted access to personally identifiable information. If users have any questions about the security at our website, users can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
