The Ashland County Community Foundation is the sole owner of the information posted at and collected from the Web site at the accommunityfoundation.org domain. The Ashland County Community Foundation wants you to have a positive experience at this Web site and to know that your privacy rights will be honored. This Web page sets forth the privacy and confidentiality practices in effect at the Ashland County Community Foundation Web site at the accommunityfoundation.org domain. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not access this Web site.
Information Collection and Usage
- General Collection and Use of Personal Identifying Information
In order to use some parts of the Web site, a user must complete a Web contact form, provide an e-mail address, or provide information such as name, email, postal address, particularly on our Donation page. We will use this personal identifying information to establish the identity of the submitter and we will retain this information. Generally, we use information only for the purpose for which it was originally collected. For instance, we might use the collected information to contact the visitor about services or information on our site in which he or she expressed an interest or to improve and customize our content. In the case of a donation, we are bound legally to capture information and keep it in our records. We also use it in case we need to contact the donor with questions or if there are problems with the transaction. However, we never provide any of this information to a third party unless it is legally required.
A user can remove his or her consent at any time and stop information from being used for informational and promotional purposes by sending an e-mail request to email@example.com and requesting to be removed from a list.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer and linked to information about the user. Usage of a cookie is not linked to personally identifiable information while on our site.
We sometimes use session-based cookies for session navigation purposes. For example, by setting a cookie on our site, users would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If users reject the cookie or turn off their browser cookies, they can still use our site. However, the user will be timed out prematurely.
- Web Service Log File Data
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This could include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Communication From Our Site
- Newsletters, Forms, and Other Publications
If we offer a newsletter or other subscriptions and a user wishes to subscribe to them, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide a way to opt-out of these communications. Please see the Choice/Opt-out section below.
- Service Announcements
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an e-mail. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
We DO NOT Share Personal Information with Third Parties (except as needed to fulfill requested services using intermediaries or agents) without users' express consent.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may disclose personal information when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with an appropriate law enforcement investigation, current judicial proceeding, a court order, or a legal process that we must legally comply with.
Our users are given the opportunity to "opt-out" of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for information. Users who no longer wish to receive a newsletter or secondary communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org and requesting to be removed from our mailing lists or clicking an Unsubmit link in our communications.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. The privacy and confidentiality statement herein applies solely to information collected by the Ashland County Community Foundation Web site at the accommunityfoundation.org domain.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site via the Tell-a-Friend function, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. We will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. We do not store this information except as needed to process the requested referral function.
The Ashland County Community Foundation has taken steps to ensure that personal identifying information collected in the future is secure, and we have limited the number of people who have access to the information by such things as password protections that guard against unauthorized access. Electronic components that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment.
- SSL Certificate Description
Monetary transactions such as our donation interface are protected by a Trustwave® SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificate with 256-Bit encryption and a $100,000 identification guarantee which provides an https protocol.
