“Personally Identifiable Information” that we may collect includes information such as your: first and last name; home or other physical address; email address; telephone number; user name; credit card information; social security number, banking information, IP address; age, incarceration status and past conviction history; and type of crime experienced.
We may use some of this Personally Identifiable Information we collect, including but not limited to information about incarceration status, past conviction history, and age, for our research purposes, to develop our policy initiatives, and for reports related to our work.
We may also collect electronic information during your use of our site — including IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring sources — to enable us to analyze how visitors use this site. We may collect domain information to enable us to analyze how visitors use this site. This data enables us to become more familiar with people who visit our site including how often they visit, their access times, etc. We will use this information to improve its services and obtain statistics regarding the use of our site.
We may also use the information to which we have access to provide you with or solicit other information and to let you know of additional services that may be of interest to you. We will provide you with the opportunity to opt out of these communications.
Sharing Personally Identifiable Information with Third Parties
We may share and disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to third party service providers that we retain to perform functions on our behalf, such as donation payment processing, web hosting, data analyses, and communication services providers.
We may also disclose your Personally Identifiable Information, if required to do so by law, or when needed to protect an individual’s personal safety, to protect the public, or to protect or further our rights, interests, or property. We will not sell your information to anyone for commercial purposes.
We use “cookies” on this Website. “Cookies” are small text files that facilitate a user’s access to and use of a website, and allow a website operator to track usage and behavior with respect to its sites.
Do Not Track Notice
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a visitor does not want to have their online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a certain DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. While we track the Website for internal website evaluation purposes, we do not track our visitors over time and across third party websites for the purpose of providing targeted advertising. Therefore, we do not respond to DNT headers.
Protecting Children’s Privacy
We are concerned about the safety and privacy of children online. Therefore, we do not and will not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under the age of 13, please do not provide any Personal Information to us. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13 years of age. If we are notified that we have received Personal Information from an individual 13 or under, we will attempt to obtain parental consent or delete the information. We encourage parents to monitor their children’s use of the Internet and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information on this Website or any other site without a parent’s permission.
If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by or about any child under age 13, please email us at [email protected].
We have reasonable security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of personal information within our possession. For example, only employees with a need to know certain information to perform a specific task are granted access to personal information of users of our Website. In addition, the servers that store sensitive information are kept in a secure environment.
However, no server, computer or communications network or system, or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect user information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through the use of this Website. When you provide us information, you acknowledge and agree that you provide such information and engage in such transmissions at your own risk.
Credit Card Transactions
We provide links on our Website to make a donation to Alliance for Safety and Justice. Alliance for Safety and Justice does not process your credit card information. Instead, Alliance for Safety and Justice has entered into an agreement with EveryAction, which uses a third party payment processing service called Paragon, to collect, store, process, and transmit your credit card data when you make a donation. All online financial transactions are processed through a secure window hosted by our payment provider. All personal financial information you provide for making donations is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology and then encrypted into our payment provider’s database. All personally identifiable information transmitted back to us is also sent via SSL-secured connections.
When you donate to Alliance for Safety and Justice or sign up to receive email communications, you will be asked to supply your email address. The emails you receive may include information relating to our organization’s mission, new features or content on our sites, or calls for action on social justice issues. You can always “opt out” of receiving our online communications by following the unsubscribe directions on any of the emails. You may also unsubscribe by sending us an email at [email protected] asking that we delete you from our subscriber list.
Please recognize that emails are not secure against interception. Therefore, please do not send us sensitive or personal information via email.
