We at Interfaith Youth Core (“us,” “our” “we,” or “Company”) consider the protection of your personal information to be a priority when you visit our website, www.ifyc.org (the “Website”). The guidelines contained in this privacy statement apply to only information collected, used and/or disclosed by us via the Internet and describe how we may collect, use and disclose information that we receive.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Statement at any time without notice (for example, if we modify our practices regarding the collection or use of information). We will revise our Last Updated date to reflect any revisions to this Statement. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of any revisions shall constitute your acceptance thereof.

What Information Do We Collect?

We do not collect any personally identifiable information (“PII” or “Personal Information”) about you unless you voluntarily submit the information to us such as when you register to receive information from us, submit a donation, register to participate in a program or service with us or communicate with us by email.

The types of PII we may request include your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number and payment card information.

We will also capture login information such as username and password, secret answers to certain security questions, or other similar information that allows us to uniquely identify your account or authenticate you prior to giving you access to your account information or certain online activities.

We may capture certain information automatically on our Website (even if you do not voluntarily provide us with Personal Information, or in addition to any Personal Information that you do provide), including your Internet protocol address, Internet service provider, browser type, and linking information. Typically, this information is for us to develop aggregated website server statistics (how many people access our Website and what pages are they interested in). At times, our systems may make this information identifiable to you, and, if so, it will be treated and protected as Personal Information.

We may use cookies or similar devices to remember or store your login information (username/email address) so we can save you the time of having to re-enter this information. Most common web browsers today allow you to modify your settings to block cookies entirely, alert you every time they are being sent, or allow their use by only those websites you approve.

We may use web beacons, which are small electronic image files that can be embedded within a web page or included in an e-mail message, to collect: (1) certain website usage information such as whether a visitor is a one-time or repeat visitor and which pages a visitor has viewed and for how long, and (2) e-mail information such as the time a e-mail was opened, if and how many times it was forwarded, and what links a recipient clicks on from within the e-mail message.

How Do We Use Your Information?

We may use the information we collect from you in the following ways:

To provide information to you, and allow us to respond efficiently to your service and information requests.
To inform you of programs or other opportunities that may be relevant to you.
