Introduction

This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how the Marguerite Casey Foundation collects personally identifying information about you from its various websites and how it uses and discloses that personal information. The Site means all of the websites of the Marguerite Casey Foundation (the “Foundation,” “we,” “us” or “our”), a nonprofit corporation existing under the laws of the state of Washington, U.S.A., address below. Those websites include www.caseygrants.org, margueritecaseyfoundation.org, www.equalvoice2008.com, equalvoice2008.net, equalvoice2008.org, equalvoiceforfamilies.com and www.equalvoiceforfamilies.org (collectively, the “Site” as defined in the applicable Terms of Use).

This Privacy Policy applies to information that personally identifies you (other than publicly available information) (“personal information”) collected on the Site.

USE OF OUR SITE OR PROVISION OF ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION CONSTITUTES AGREEMENT TO THIS POLICY. Do not use the Site or provide information (or allow others to do so on your behalf) if you (and your principal if you are acting as agent) do not agree with all of the Terms of Use including this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is part of and incorporated into the Terms of Use for the Site, which is the contract between you and the Foundation governing use of the Site. Parts of the Terms of Use affect this Privacy Policy, so please review them prior to using the Site. Terms used but not defined in this Policy have the definitions in the Terms of Use.

Information We Collect That You Provide

It is your choice whether to provide personal information. Your decision not to provide information might limit or eliminate certain functions of the Site or your ability to participate. Other information is up to your good judgment. For example, do not provide personal information about yourself in a blog or similar forum that could be misused by others and do not provide personal information about others without their permission. The kinds of personal information we may to request about you include name, email address and location.

Information We Collect Not Provided by You

We collect some information automatically from visitors to the Site through the use of “cookies,” “web beacons,” and other tracking mechanisms. We collect at least the following: your domain name and host for Internet access; the Internet address of the site from which you came; the date and time of your access; your computer’s IP address and information about its operating system, browser and host; the date and time you access the Site and the pages you visit. If you do not want to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject them. However, if you turn cookies off, you may not have access to some of the Site’s services and features. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you access the Site. We also may employ web beacons from third parties to help us compile aggregated statistics regarding the operations of our site. We prohibit web beacons on our site from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.

Information You Provide About Others

Do not supply personal information about others unless you are authorized or required to do so by applicable law or contract and you consent to the Terms of Use on behalf of yourself and the “data subject” (the person about whom you supply personal information). Before supplying personal information about others (except as otherwise allowed by law or contract), you must make available for the data subject’s review, and obtain their written consent to, said Terms of Use and policies. By submitting any personal information about others, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so and that you did all of the foregoing before submitting the information. If applicable law allows you to supply the information without doing the foregoing, you represent and warrant that you have abided by that law and that it allows us to receive and Disclose (as defined below) the information under this Policy without any further action on our part. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless against any failure by you to comply with this paragraph.

The Foundation works with third parties on certain programs, and often those third parties own and/or are responsible for that program’s Website. In those cases, if you provide personal information, you will be giving it to a third party and their privacy policy will apply. You agree that if they provide such information to us then we may apply our Policy to what we receive.

What We Do with Personal Information Collected

In general, we use personal information we collect to pursue our mission and operations and to engage in the activity (and related activities) for which we collect it. For example (and without limitation), if you sign up for a newsletter, we’ll send the newsletter and we’ll put you on our mailing list or even the list of a third party who we think has a similar mission; if you apply for a job, we’ll use the information to find out about you and share it with service providers and others we view as relevant to the employment process. Further information is available in the supplemental policies for some activities, but you should assume that we will use all information for all lawful purposes. Subject to applicable law, we reserve the right voluntarily or involuntarily to make all lawful, worldwide uses of personal information, including without limitation, to: collect, use, access (or bar access), process, fulfill, disclose, display, share, respond to legal process or otherwise exercise our rights under applicable law, transfer, store, sell, lease, retain, commingle, investigate, verify, prove, enforce, delete, and otherwise deal with personal information, and information other than personal information, voluntarily or involuntarily (collectively “Disclose”).

Your Ability to Update Personal Information

In general, our systems do not provide the ability for you to update your information at this time.

We keep personal information for as long as we think is necessary or advisable and we reserve the right to retain it to the full extent not prohibited by law. We may discard personal information in our discretion, so you should retain your own records, and not rely upon our storage of any personal information or other data.

DISCLAIMER REGARDING SECURITY

WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OR OTHER INFORMATION IN ANY FORM.

Consent to Electronic Notice If There is a Security Breach

If we are required to provide notice of unauthorized access or other invasion of certain security systems, you agree that we (or they) may do so when required (or voluntarily) by posting notice on our Site or sending notice to any email address we have for you, in our (or their) good faith discretion. You agree that notice to you will count as notice to others for whom you are acting, and agree to pass the notice on to them.

CHILDREN

We do not want to collect information from children. Do not provide any personal information unless you are at least 13 years of age, and please caution your children not to provide any. If a child under 13 has provided personal information, a parent or guardian may so inform us by writing us at our address below and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete it from our database, subject to applicable law and this Privacy Policy.

Identity Theft

If you believe you are a victim of identity theft entitled by law to request information from us, write us at the address below and we’ll explain what information we require in order to respond. After receiving that information, we’ll supply (without charge) information we then have that we are legally required to provide (subject to applicable law and reserving all rights and defenses).

Amendments

We will be changing what we do and how and why we Disclose data periodically—this Policy describes what we currently envision, but that will change as we change. You agree that this Policy amends and replaces any previous privacy policy. We may further amend all or part of this Policy in the same way that we make amendments to our Terms of Use and such amended versions will be posted on this page.

Our Terms of Use and This Privacy Policy

This Policy is part of and supplemented by our Terms of Use, which together with any supplemental privacy policy form a contract.
