The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the website, located at the URL www.theharbor.org.
Disclosure of Your Personal Information
We respect your privacy. It is our policy that personal information provided to Boys & Girls Harbor will not be shared outside of the Harbor without your consent.
Personal information is utilized solely to process and receive donations, register attendance at an event or meeting, or to respond to information requests from website visitors and donors. Donor anonymity will be respected if requested and where applicable.
Upon request, Boys & Girls Harbor gives website visitors and donors full access to its information and will maintain its accuracy according to their individual instructions.
Boys & Girls Harbor does not share, sell, rent, or trade mailing lists under any circumstances, nor do we disclose personal information, except as compelled to do so by law.
What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information
Unless you specify that a gift be “anonymous” or otherwise request that your name not be listed, we may list the names of major donors and supporters of specific fundraising campaigns on our website, in some brochures, and benefit programs to recognize the generosity of those who have given to our cause. We do not sell our donor lists to anyone.
Boys & Girls Harbor strives to keep donors informed about how donations are used and their importance for continuing our programs. We send several e-blasts and mailings each year to accomplish this and include a donation reply card to invite financial support. Most Boys & Girls Harbor supporters want to receive all of our mailings and newsletters. However, you may opt out of any and all mailings.
In general, we automatically gather certain usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to this site. Visitor logs are used on this site for statistical purposes only. Boys & Girls Harbor may automatically receive and record information on our server logs from a website visitor’s or donor’s browser, which may include their IP address, session time, click path analysis, and pages requested. We use such data only in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how much our visitors use parts of the site and to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand and serve you.
Use of “Cookies”
Policy toward Children
We are concerned about the safety and privacy of children who use the Internet. Although we encourage children to learn more about our organization and opportunities to serve their communities, we encourage that this be done with parental supervision. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personally identifiable information without verifiable parental consent, he or she should contact the Development Office at 212-427-2244 ext.504.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, Boys & Girls Harbor has put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information contained in the Boys & Girls Harbor’s records of donors.
