Although elements of this policy may apply to the veterans we serve, their caregivers, and our donors who visit our website, we do collect additional data from these groups of people.
H7F is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. It is our goal that you fully understand how we collect information, how we use that information, and the steps we’ve taken to protect that information. We will update this policy from time to time, so make sure to check this page periodically. If you have any questions about this policy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What type of information does H7F collect?
There are two basic types of information that H7F might collect: personal and non-personal information.
As you browse the H7F website, you may opt to provide H7F with personal information.
Personal information is information that contains identifiers such as your name, address, phone number, or email address.
H7F may also collect non-personal information from you such as an internet protocol address (typically referred to as an “IP address” and defined below) and browsing variables (like your web browser, referral links, or how much time you spent at our website). Although this information may on rare occasion be used to identify you, H7F typically uses this information to improve your experience and the experience of other visitors to our website.
You are free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our site may not work properly if you do that.
What’s an IP address? An IP address is a unique number, assigned to each and every computer and other device on the Internet. Your computer, your phone, your e-reader, and other electronic devices, are all assigned IP addresses.
When does H7F collect this information?
We collect non-personal information from you as you use any of the pages on our website. We collect personal information from you only when you specifically provide it to us – for example, if you fill out a form or send us an email.
We may also use your personal and non-personal information in the following ways:
Entering your information into our databases for internal record keeping, reporting, and data analysis;
Communicating with you to obtain your input, provide information about our programs and events, or request contributions (provided you have opted to receive such communications);
Improving our programs and services;
Customizing our website according to your interests;
Sharing information with third parties who help us manage our website and databases, and who assist us with our marketing efforts; and
Sharing information with third parties as required by law, or a part of a legal process;
Does H7F share my information?
WWP may share your personal and non-personal information as discussed herein. We do not, however, sell or rent the personal information of our general website users for profit.
Does H7F track my online activity while I’m not on the H7F site?
Cookies and other technology may be used to track non-personal information about your web-browsing habits. For example, if a significant portion of our visitors all browse to the sae website immediately after visiting us, we may use this information to improve your experience at our site.
H7F respects web browser “do not track” signals and other mechanisms that provide you the ability to opt out of having your personal information or online activities collected. But remember, unless you have selected the “do not track” function in your web browser, third parties (not just H7F) may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites.
How does H7F secure my personal information?
H7F is committed to ensuring that your personal information is secure. Your trust in us is important, so we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Records containing personal information are stored at secure facilities; our websites use SSL (a tool used to verify the legitimacy of a website); and our employees are provided training on how to treat your data securely.
Will you contact me if I give H7F my information?
If you provide us with your contact information, we may provide you with information about how you can help this generation of injured veterans. However, if you would not like to receive these messages, you can opt out of having your personal information used for certain purposes when we ask for your contact information.
Sometimes we’ll provide you with a link to another website or service. We typically do this in order to provide you additional information about one of our sponsors to others who support the mission of H7F.
