WISH Charter Privacy Policy

General Statement
We recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users of this website. We created the following policy guidelines with a fundamental respect for our users' right to privacy and because we value our relationships with our users.

How Information is Collected
We collect information about users by voluntary submission, IP addresses and cookies.

Voluntary Submission
When users elect to subscribe to newsletters or magazines, enter contests or to access special sections, users are required to supply certain personal information during the registration process. Information collected through these forms may be used by WISH Charter to gather broad demographic information about our users in general, for audits and to perform statistical analysis of user behavior in order to measure interest in the various areas of our website.

WISH Charter will not disclose (share, sell or divulge) any personal information, such as address, e-mail, telephone and fax numbers, to third parties unless we have informed you, been authorized by you or are required to do so by law. We maintain this information in accordance with our strict security and confidentiality standards.

We employ an agency and a web developer to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending emails, removing repetitive information, form email lists, analyzing data, and providing support assistance. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

IP Addresses
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you surf the Internet. When you request pages from the WISH Charter web server, the server automatically logs your IP address, but not the e-mail address. WISH Charter may use the log for various purposes, including systems administration.

A cookie is a message sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. The use of cookies is an industry standard (i.e., most Internet sites use cookies).

Opting Out
WISH Charter may periodically send out e-mails to our users about new information and upcoming events using e-mail addresses provided at registration or otherwise. Upon request, WISH Charter will remove users (and their information) from our database or permit them to "opt-out" of any further e-mail newsletter lists. If you receive any such e-mail messages that you do not wish to receive again in the future, simply send an e-mail to jennie@wishcharter.org. Please place the word "remove" in the subject field.

This website contains links to other websites. WISH Charter is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. Inclusion of links is merely a service to our users.

WISH Charter uses reasonable precautions to keep the personal information disclosed to us secure. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Nonetheless, WISH Charter does not guarantee the security, accuracy or completeness of any such information or procedures.
