The Homeless Children’s Education Fund (HCEF) is committed to protecting your privacy. This policy explains what types of information are collected by HCEF’s website, www.homelessfund.org, and how this information is used.
What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected
Users who register for events, donate, or sign up to receive HCEF’s e-communications voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.
HCEF may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer www.homelessfund.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.
www.homelessfund.org uses “cookie” messages to automatically help provide better services. They remind us who you are and your preferences for our website based on what you’ve done and told us before. The “cookie” is placed in your computer and is read when you come back to our website. Cookies let us take you to the information and features you’re particularly interested in. They also let us track your usage of www.homelessfund.org, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. You can reject cookies or cancel them by instructing your Web browser accordingly.
How Your Information May Be Used
We may use your personal information to provide you with personalized services, to send e-mail alerts to you, to answer your requests, to process your donations or applications, etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to track visitors of our website. This provides us with aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example).
The Homeless Children’s Education Fund does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization.
www.homelessfund.org includes links to external websites. These links do not fall under the www.homelessfund.org domain, and Homeless Children’s Education Fund is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of external websites. Your use of any linked website is solely at your own risk.
