Privacy Policy

Awareness

The Foundation provides this Privacy Policy to make you aware of our privacy practices and of the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

Personal Information

Generally, you can visit the Foundation’s website (www.armaedfoundation.org) without revealing any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need information from you. Personal information like your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, or credit card number (if applicable) is obtained only when voluntarily submitted, such as when you make donations through the website, download research papers, or contact the Foundation Coordinator. Information that you supply will relate to the customer relationship that the Foundation has with you or your organization.

How We Use It

If you choose to provide personal information via the Internet that we request, we intend to let you know how that information will be used. The Foundation will use your personal information to acknowledge donations and orders for materials and services made online and to provide other services you request. We may also use the information you supply to notify you about important news concerning your Foundation, including new products and services as well as Foundation announcements. Credit card numbers are used only for donation processing and are not retained for other purposes.

In the process of administering our site, we maintain and track usage through web server logs. Web server logs provide such information as what types of browsers are accessing our site, what pages receive high traffic, and the times of day our servers experience significant load. We use this information to improve the content and navigation features of our site. It is not used to personally identify you.

How We Share It

We will not sell, rent, or lease to others, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses. We will share the personal data you provide only with other entities and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf for the uses described above, except as provided below (see Consent). Such Foundation entities and/or business partners are governed by our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data and are bound by this Privacy Policy and applicable confidentiality agreements.

Consent

The Foundation will use and share the personally identifiable information you provided to us in ways related to those described above. We reserve the right to disclose any and all pertinent customer information to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.

Our Commitment to Data Security

The Foundation is concerned about the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use industry standard SSL encryption technology and Verisign certificates when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information, and we do not store credit card data on our servers.
