We use our best efforts to respect and protect the privacy of our online visitors. For each visitor to our site, our server automatically recognizes only the visitor’s domain name, but not the e-mail address.
For purposes of improving our web site content, aggregate information is collected on what pages of the web site are visited. We only gather personally identifiable data (such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e-mail addresses, etc.) that are voluntarily submitted by the visitor, and we only use such data to facilitate online donations, mailing/subscription lists or to return information requested in our Contact Us page. Such data, including email addresses, may be shared with our county programs and/or Special Olympics, Inc. offices for the above named purposes.
Web site visitor information is used for internal Special Olympics purposes only and will not be sold to third parties. E-mail addresses of visitors and donors are never sold or exchanged.
If you supply us with your postal address online, you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, requests for financial support, or new products or services. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please let us know by contacting us using the address or phone number provided above.
Special Olympics, Inc. occasionally exchanges a portion of our postal address list with other non-profit organizations in order to significantly decrease our fundraising costs. The exchanged lists are governed by strict privacy procedures. If you do not want your name to be included on such exchanged lists, please let us know by contacting us using the address or phone number provided above. As stated above, we will not rent or exchange your email address with any third parties.
