The following Privacy Policy explains how The Youth Fund (“TYF,” “we,” “us” or “our”) collects, uses and protects information from our website users through www.TheYouthFund.org (the “Site”).

This Privacy Policy is part of our website Terms and Conditions. By using the Site, you consent to our collection and use of information about you in accordance with this Policy. We may change this Policy from time to time by posting an updated version on this page. For significant changes, we may post it on homepage or notify you directly. By continuing to use the Site after we have posted any changes, you agree to the terms of the updated Policy.

We collect two kinds of information from TYF website users: (1) anonymous information concerning the use of the Site, and (2) personally identifiable information that can be used to identify or contact an individual.

Anonymous Information

As most websites, our servers automatically log certain information that does not personally identify you. We use this information in aggregate form to help manage and improve the Site. We may also use standard tracking technologies and website analytics tools to monitor and better understand user behaviors on the Site.

Personal Identifiable Information

We collect personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide to us through the Site. For example, we collect personal data when you fill out a member registration form, sign up for a program or event, subscribe to an email newsletter or submit a request for information. This information would allow TYF to identify and contact you, and provide the service you requested. We retain personal information for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is used.

We consider the personal information that we receive to be confidential. We will not use your personal information without your consent, except in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Location of Servers

Our servers are located in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please note that your personal information will be transferred to and stored on a server located in the United States. By submitting your personal information to us, you consent to this transfer and to the collection, storage, processing and use of your data in the United States.

Security

While we endeavor to protect the security and integrity of information in our care, due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that information storage or transmission over the Internet will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others. TYF makes no warranty, guarantee or representation that the Site is protected from viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities or that your data is always secure. Accordingly, you provide us with your data at your own risk.

Sharing with Third Parties

We generally do not share personal information collected through the Site.

We may, however, share your personal information with trusted third parties who provide services necessary to our operations. We may occasionally refer you to a service provider’s site for help in serving you. For example, we may link you to an external site to process a donation or program registration. When you follow a link away from our Site, you leave our Site. This Policy applies only to the TYF site, and not to the service providers’ sites. You should review their privacy policies to understand how they protect your privacy.

In addition, we may share your personal information as required by law and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or those of third parties, to protect your safety or the safety of others, to investigate fraud or other illegality, or to comply with a court order or other legal obligation.

Links to External Sites

The Site may contain links to third-party websites and content providers. TYF is not responsible for these other sites and has no control over their content or privacy practices. We encourage you to review privacy policies and terms of use for those sites.

Google Analytics

We use the information from Google Analytics to assemble statistics regarding usage of the Site. This would help with customer service needs and encourage us to improve the Site. If you wish, please view the Google Analytics browser add-on to opt out of their analytics tracking.

Cookies

We may use cookies on web pages to enhance your online experience. Cookies serve only as a convenience feature to save your time. You can disable the cookies function or delete existing cookies through your web browser’s options menu.

Communications Sent to You

TYF distributes information and resources to you by email or other communication vehicles. We send these communications to you only if you have signed up to receive them or if you have agreed to receive them as part of a TYF membership. We may also use your information to contact you if you initiate correspondence with us. For example, if you email us or provide us with your business card, we may add you to our mailing lists.

If you no longer wish to receive one or more types of communications, we are happy to honor your request.

Children Under Age 13

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If you are a parent or legal guardian, and you believe that your child may have supplied personal information to us without your permission, please contact us.

Corrections, Comments and Questions
