Policies Regarding Visitor Data
The New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault has created this privacy statement to demonstrate its firm commitment to privacy by informing site visitors of the our data collection and storage practices, and guidelines for use of visitor data. The following statements detail information gathering and dissemination practices for our Web site, located at http://www.svfreenyc.org, http://www.nycagainstrape.org, and any other associated sites using the nycagainstrape.org or svfreenyc domain.
Our servers collect and aggregate user information site-wide, including anonymous site statistics, such as the number of views of each page. We log domain names and/or IP addresses of visitors (such as umich.edu, aol.com, 22.214.171.124, etc.), which permits us to know “where” visitors are from, or what access service they use, without knowing their individual identities. Because we do not require users to register with us, this “host level” tracking is our primary basis for assessing traffic patterns.
On certain pages, such as our feedback pages, post an announcement form, alert function, or newsletter lists, we give users the option of providing us with names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses, and other personal information, and various other kinds of details. This more personal information is gathered only with users’ knowing and active permission and participation. It is never exchanged with other organizations unless the intention to do so is explicitly indicated at the point where the information is collected. However, if a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, 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 only store this information to send the friend a one-time invitation.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein 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 legal process served on our Web site.
We give our users the option to view or modify their personal information, to remove their records altogether, or to opt out of all communications. To do so, send an e-mail detailing the request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notification of Changes
If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via email and by posting a notice on our Web site for 30 days.
