Internet Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting www.peoplesrc.org.  People’s Resource Center (“PRC”) respects the privacy of online visitors and donors.  This Internet Privacy Policy explains our collection and treatment of any personal information you may provide to us through this site.

Collection of Personal Information
You may visit this site without providing us with any personally identifiable information.  You may also choose to submit personally identifiable information in certain circumstances, such as when you join the direct mailing lists for PRC newsletters and other mailings or make an online contribution to PRC.  In these instances, we may collect information, including your name, address, and other similar contact information as well as any other personal information that you provide to us.  

Personal Information from Children
We do not knowingly collect, disclose, or use personally identifiable information provided by a minor under the age of 18.  In certain circumstances, we may accept information provided by a child who is between 13-18 years of age solely in order to assist that child or their family, but we will not include that information on our fundraising lists.  If you learn that your child has provided personally identifiable information to PRC, please contact us and we shall remove that information from our lists.  

Use of Personal Information
PRC does not sell or otherwise share with organizations who are not our partners any of the personally identifiable information received on this site.  PRC may use personally identifiable information for PRC-specific direct mailings, such as email updates, newsletters, and solicitation and advocacy letters.  

Social Security Numbers
PRC does not seek to collect social security numbers, although individuals may at times provide them to us for specific purposes.  If PRC does receive a social security number, it will use it for only the purposes for which it was submitted, and it will promptly and securely destroy its record of number when the need for it has ended. 

Aggregate Personal Information
PRC may also gather aggregate information regarding online visitors and share this information with third-parties.  Aggregate information identifies overall visitor activity, but does not provide information on any individual user.

Internet Information Security
We take reasonable precautions to ensure that any personally identifiable information you provide on this site is kept confidential and stored in a secure environment, and that only those personnel with legitimate business purposes will have access to this information.  Even so, we cannot guarantee that data provided to us will not be subject to loss, alteration, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or destruction.  It is important to be aware that all internet transmissions are subject to security breaches and errors.  You should take precautions in choosing the information you send to PRC via email and safeguard any passwords or special types of identification you use to access this site.  

International Notice
Personal information that is voluntarily submitted to PRC online, via electronic communication, or otherwise may be maintained or accessed in servers or files located in the United States under United States privacy laws, which the European Union has not deemed to provide "adequate" privacy protection.  If you do not consent to having your information processed and stored in the United States, please do not provide it.

Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data that a website may transmit to your browser.  The cookie may be stored on your computer to identify your computer when you return to the site, but does not identify you as an individual user.  PRC uses “session only” cookies to track your use of this site that do not retain your personal information.
