Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting Angelsfoster.org (the “Web Site”), owned and operated by Angels. At Angels, your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our privacy policy. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of personal information we gather when you use Angels’ services, our online information practices, and choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used at this Web Site.

1. Information Collection and Use

The server on which the Web Site is located collects and saves only the default information customarily logged by web server software. Such information may include the date and time of your visit, the originating IP address, and the pages and images requested.

We may from time to time send information in the form of email to those who register with us at angelsfoster.org. You may always opt out of receiving future mailings.

We use personal information internally to serve our users and to enhance and extend our relationship with our users. For example, by understanding how you use the Web Site from your computer, we are able to customize and personalize your experience. More specifically, we use personal information for the purposes for which it was collected, to anticipate and resolve problems with our Web Site, to respond to customer support inquiries, and for our own internal operations (including internal analysis as described below). You should review the “Information Sharing” section to understand when we disclose personal information to third parties.

In the event we have additional Web Sites and make them accessible through the URL www.angelsfoster.org and those Sites have additional or different practices or policies, the practices will be explained at those Sites.

2. Collection of Personal Data from Children and Minors

To the extent that Angels is able to determine the age of visitors by their submissions to or communications with Angels’ Web Site, Angels will not knowingly (a) collect or post information from individuals under the age of eighteen (“minors”) or under the age of thirteen (“children”), or (b) provide any personally identifying information collected from minors or children, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever.

If registration is required for any services on the Angels Web Site, and a visitor submits information to Angels’ Web Site through such a registration process that indicates that such visitor is a minor or child we will delete the registration, or if we are not certain if the user is a minor or child we will take all reasonable measures to alert the minor or child’s parent or guardian to the registration and provide instructions on how the parent or guardian can delete the minor or child’s registration. No information collected through the Angels Web Site from visitors who identify themselves as minors or children will be retained or used for any purpose.

3. Information Sharing

We do not rent or sell your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals, unless we have your consent. We may share such information in any of the following limited circumstances:

(a) We have your consent.

(b) We provide such information to trusted businesses or persons for the sole purpose of processing personally identifying information on our behalf. When this is done, it is subject to agreements that oblige those parties to process such information only on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

(c) We conclude that we are required by law or have a good faith belief that access, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of Angels, its users, or the public.

We may store and process personal information collected on our site in the United States or any other country in which Angels or its agents maintain facilities. By using our services, you consent to the transfer of your information among these facilities, including those located outside your country.

In the event of a transfer of ownership of Angels, such as by acquisition or merger with another company, we will provide notice before any personally identifying information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We may share aggregated information with others. This includes information from which no individuals can be identified.

4. Security

Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. In addition, we have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you.

5. Use of Cookies

Our site uses a technology called “cookies,” which are small files that are placed on your computer by our servers stored by your browser to help keep track of your user profile. We use cookies to track user trends and improve areas of our sites that our users find valuable. We do not share cookie information with anyone without your permission.

Angels may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.

Some advertisers or third party ad servers may also use their own cookies. We do not have access to this information collected by third parties.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your browser and our web sites are viewable even if you disable the cookie function on your browser. However, if you disable cookies, some advanced and customized features of our site, as well as other web sites, will not be available to you.

6. Use of IP Addresses

An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet provider whenever you’re surfing the Web. When you request pages from angelsfoster.org, our servers log your IP address. Angels collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our Site. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that your session will be logged, but you will be anonymous to us. We may use your IP addresses in cooperation with your Internet provider to identify you if we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms of Use or to protect our service, Sites, customers, or others.

7. Links to Third Party Sites

Angels is not responsible for the content or practices of third party websites that may be linked to our Sites. Our Sites may also be linked to websites operated by other companies. These other sites may place their own cookies on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information. Visitors to these web sites should refer to each web site’s respective privacy policies and practices.

8. Choice/Opt-Out

Our Sites may provide you the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us at the point where we request information about you. You always have the option of removing your name from any e-mail list to not receive future communications. In order to ensure immediate removal from any list, it is best to follow the specific instructions outlined within the communication you received from us. However, if you are unable to complete the process indicated in the communications, then just send us an e-mail at info@angelsfoster.org with a copy of the undesired email attached to the request and state you wish to be removed from the mailing list.
