Child Advocates Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Our privacy statement is as follows:

Child Advocates, Inc. will not trade, share, sell, or lease our donor’s personal information to third parties, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations unless the donor has given specific permission to do so.  This policy applies to all information received by Child Advocates, Inc., both online and offline, including our website and mobile applications, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.  To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.
 
Opt Out:  If Child Advocates, Inc. receives your personal information you may receive e-mails, mailings, information, and promotions from, or on behalf of, Child Advocates, Inc. If at any point you no longer would like to receive this information, please notify us of your wishes by emailing us at development@childadvocates.org, mailing us a letter, or calling 713.529.1396 ext 241.
 
The Information We Collect 
Child Advocates, Inc. will ask for your personal information when you register with us to make an online donation. During this process, Child Advocates, Inc. asks for your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone, and email.
 
We will store that information in our database to add you to our mailing list so that we can send you information about Child Advocates, Inc.
 
Typically, the mailing list would be used initially for recruitment or fundraising events and programs that benefit and support the mission of Child Advocates, Inc. If you do not wish to receive such solicitations or notices, you will need to inform us separately that you do not wish to receive such information. In addition, if you contact Child Advocates, Inc., we may keep a record of that correspondence. If at any time, you no longer wish to receive e-mails from Child Advocates, Inc., please let us know. 
 
Our Commitment to Security 
Child Advocates, Inc. operates secure data networks protected by industry-standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our users. 
 
To protect your information off-line, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect from you online.
 
Our Commitment to Children's Privacy 
Under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, no website operator is permitted to require a child under the age of 13 to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity as a condition of participation.
 
Child Advocates, Inc. therefore does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from children under 13.

If your personal information changes (such as your address) please contact us at 713-529-1396, ext. 0.
